"due season, not a due date."

This blog post post by Christine Caine was so timely, and was so gently used by the Lord to prick and convict my little anxious heart. I thought I would share it.

" God Has An Appointed Time

It is crucial to dream big dreams, and to expect and believe for great things from God. But we must always remember, "To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven" (Ecclesiastes 3:1).

So many people prematurely give up on the promises of God because they expect God to move according to their DUE DATE. But God doesn't come in on our deadlines and due dates; He has HIS appointed times and seasons.

Don't give up because you don't think it is happening quickly enough.
When you think nothing is going on, God is preparing you for the very thing He has already prepared for you.

It is crucial to remember:

Most things will take longer than you think.

Most things will be more difficult than you can imagine.

Most things will cost so much more than you ever thought you would have to pay.

BUT IT IS SO WORTH IT. Don't give up.

"Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart" (Galatians 6:9).

Remember God has a due SEASON; He does not give you a due DATE!"

Wow. Thank you, Lord for this sweet reminder. 
I know nothing of time, but You do.
and it's so beautifully perfect.

"God is the blessed controller of all things,
the king over all kings and the master of all masters."
-1 Timothy 6:15
