His Perfect Time
"Being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great
endurance and patience..." Colossians 1:11
Scripture Focus: Colossians 1:1-14
We read in Genesis 31-33 of Jacob's journey back to his homeland to be reunited with Esau, his brother. Through years of hard work and difficulty, God changed Jacob from the deceiver he was as a young man to a husband and father with growing responsibilities. Jacob met with God - even wrestled with Him - and was left a different man... still not perfect by any means, but a work in progress, God's man through whom His promises would continue.
Our Father knows us better than we know ourselves. He may step in to slow us down when we rush into a venture with brazen confidence. He may nudge us forward when a task seems overwhelming. In every case He extends loving patience while we learn, guiding us with His wisdom until the work is complete. He led the children of Israel into the land He promised them little by little so they were prepared and equipped for each new development. We can slip our hand into His, receiving strength and direction for this New Year as He opens the way before us in His perfect time.
Insight: Our times - past, present and future - are in his hands.
