Appointed Time:Tuesday, September 20, 2016Time is of the essence. There is an appointed time for every dream to be fulfilled. If you understand this you will never let go and give up on your dream. Look at Abraham, God gave him a promise that He would have an heir and that through him all the nations of the earth would be blessed (Genesis 12:2-3). However, it took Abraham twenty-five years before he saw the manifestation of that promise. Why? Because with every promise there is an appointed time. God could have allowed Sarah to become pregnant anytime after He gave Abraham the promise, (after all He is God) it could have been an instance miracle. So why wasn’t it? Was it that Abraham didn’t believe? No, scripture tells us that Abraham believed and it was accounted to him for righteousness. So why the wait? I believe the wait was for the appointed time. The angel of the Lord told Abraham, “At the appointed time I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son” (Gen. 18:14). God is never too early and He is never too late. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, He hath made ever thing beautiful in His time; also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. We may not know what the appointed time is but we can trust God to bring it to pass at the appointed time. Not understanding that there is an appointed time can cause you to do things outside of God’s will to accomplish your dream just as Sarah did when she gave Hagar to Abraham. What Sarah didn’t realize was that time was necessary for the physical things to line up with the spiritual. Only God knows how long that process will take but rest assured He never gives up on what He has promised you. If He has given you a dream or vision for your life He will bring it to pass at the appointed time. Ours is to trust Him and walk in obedience to His will.
