God's Clock

In divine providence, nothing comes a moment too soon or too late but everything comes in its own complete time. God's clock is never too slow. Every link of the chain of God's providence, fits into its own place.

We do not see God's hand at the time. Not until afterward, will you see that your disappointments, hardships, trials, and the wrongs inflicted on you by others are parts of God's good providence toward you, and full of blessing. Not until afterward will you see it, but the "afterward" is secure to faithful followers of Christ. The "afterward" of every disappointment or sorrow is blessing and good. We only need to learn to wait in patience for Him.

[J. R. Miller]
John 13:7 ... Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
Romans 8:28 ... And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Psalm 27:14 ... Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
