Gods timetable. ( Habakkuk 2 v 3 )

I often reflect on Gods timing in my life,how things happened at just the right time.Even so I must remember that there is my timetable and Gods timetable. This is seen in the early church as regards the second coming of our Lord Jesus. They had hoped that He would come soon and when it did not happen, Peter had to remind them of mans timetable and Gods,'' But do not forget this one thing ,dear friends; With the Lord a day is like a thousand years ,and a thousand years are like a day''(2 Peter 3 v 8 ).There are people who say that Paul expected Christ to come, in his life time, I believe he hoped that would be ,every generation of Christians hope Christ will come, in their lifetime,that is why it is called the blessed hope. Many of the promises given to Old  Testament saints,did not get fulfilled in their lifetime,but they did get fulfilled at the time of Gods choosing.         Every promise is set to Gods timetable,some happen immediately, but the vital thing to remember is, it will happen,no power on earth can stop it from happening.If it is a promise concerning a need, a job, God will undertake, in His time,coinciding with the promise God desires that we believe, faith in Gods word,will be rewarded,and is pleasing to God ( Hebrews 11 v 6 )
