For thus says the LORD: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place. Jeremiah 29:10
One of the greatest gifts God has given to man is ‘TIME’. It has helped man to plan, set goals, make appointments, and has been exchanged for money severally. However, time has been one of man’s greatest source of frustration because he cannot hasten it, delay it or control it. The only person that can control time is God, and He is not bound by time because He is eternal.
When the children of Israel went into captivity in Babylon, God set a time for their release – 70 years. The countdown started the moment their captivity began and the clock started ticking…tick tock, tick tock. There is nothing you are going through that does not have a time limit set for it. God sets and keeps appointments, and He is set to keep His appointment with you in that situation you are facing.
The devil may have stopped your job, set you back in business, broken your relationship, or you may have suffered a loss and he is saying, you are stuck in this defeat. Don’t get frantic or be intimidated, he doesn’t have the right to keep you longer than what God’s timing for that situation allows. Each passing day draws you closer to your breakthrough. Remember, the clock
The natural question in your heart is, “How long do I wait?” Wait until your time comes. Every season has an end date appointed for it. God did not miss His appointment with Sarah regarding Isaac, nor did He miss His appointment with the Israelites about their release from captivity in Babylon. He won’t miss the one He has with you!
May this day, mark the TIME for your turnaround in Jesus’ name.
+ Ask for grace to manage your time productively as you wait for God’s timing in different aspects of your life.
+ Boldly declare that the devil will not keep you a second longer than you are supposed to be in the situations you are dealing with in life.
