Just The Right Time

Just The Right Time

Scripture:

1 As God’s partners, we beg you not to reject this marvelous message of God’s great kindness. 2 For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, God is ready to help you right now. Today is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:1-2 NLT)

Paul often referred to his message as the gospel, the Good News. Like Paul’s message, our message is the marvelous message of God’s great kindness. Here’s God’s message to me and my message to you today:

God is kind. He is kind to sinners like you and me.

God is aware. He is listening all the time and he hears every heart cry directed his way, no matter how desperate. No matter how poorly expressed. No matter how intellectually uniformed the expression of a desperate heart, God hears.

God is working on your situation. On my day of salvation, God helps me. Sometimes the cry of my heart seems to go unheard. Sometimes the situation continues to worsen. Sometimes I work through all the possible scenarios and God seems to completely ignore each obvious opportunity to help me.

God comes through at just the right time. God is ready to help you right now. It’s his timing, not yours. It’s his solution, not one of the many you worked out. God is ready to help you right now. Simply cry out to him with the most honest expression of your heart and trust him to hear you and help you at just the right time.

Prayer:

Father, This prayer is usually about me, about my heart response to what you say to me as I allow your word to intersect my life. But today I pray for someone who is reading this note who has only enough faith for one more desperate heart cry to you. Please fulfill this word to them today… For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, God is ready to help you right now. Today is the day of salvation. Amen.
