Trust and Timing

When we pray “Thy kingdom come” we are embracing the idea that some amount of time separates what “is now” from what “will be”.  “Maranatha!” prayed the early Christians.  “Come Lord Jesus!” they cried with urgency and hope.  Even so, they recognized, eventually, that patience would be required of them because patience is one of God’s qualities.  When I get to glory, one of the things that I believe I will regret is the YEARS that I spent not seeing the outworking plan of God.  I was praying for His help but didn’t see it because I was looking for a solution that didn’t take time!  Imagine this morning that God is stretching your heart to allow His plan to work out over time, short or long.  Imagine Him asking you to pray for things that you may not even see in your lifetime.  If you want His will, do you want His timing?
