It's About Time

Have you ever picked up a book that everybody else is raving about and it’s flat and dull to you? Then you pick it up 6 months later and you love it? It’s all about timing.

I’ve been pondering the importance of God’s timing. I honestly believe that we are at a critical juncture in our nation’s history and that you and I can make a difference in the way things go. I won’t get too heavy today, because I have my “Expector” turned up. I’m expecting good things and am declaring that and speaking it into my environment.

Everywhere I turn, I’m hearing words about timing. I heard a message on Sunday about the word kairos. It’s a Greek word that means the right or opportune moment. The other Greek word for time is chronos, which refers to chronological or sequential time. Kairos implies qualitative time while chronos implies quantitative time. In the New Testament kairos means "the appointed time in the purpose of God", the time when God acts.

I’m alert for those moments in time that I am to do or say something that can precipitate what God wants to do. I want to experience qualitative time; it’s an exciting way to live! Is your “Expector” on?

Oh yes, my "Expector" is on! In January I said that 2009 was going to be the year. The year I step out in faith and do the thing God has wanted me to do for a while. And so, every day, I take small steps toward that goal, expecting that He will provide for me just as He wants.

This post was great "timing" for me today, as my timing is not God's timing, adn I'm sulking a bit. But I know his timing is better, so I'm hanging on to that. Thanks for the post!

A very "timely" post! I agree that, like Esther, we have been called for such a time as this.
