What is Better Than 20/20 Hindsight?

God’s timing is perfect and He’s always on time

However, we assume that since our prayer is not answered right away, God has answered, “No” or maybe He didn’t even hear our prayer.

I remember when I had listed my home to sell. I wanted to sell it the very first day and even expected the very first people to view the house to make an offer.

What I know now, that I did not know then, was that God’s timing is very different than mine.

Looking back, I know there are many good reasons that we were not ready to move when I wanted to.

It is said that hindsight is 20/20, but God knows the past, the present and the future

We should not question His timing. We should accept that He knows best and accept that our prayers will be answered in His timing.

And many times His answer is, “Yes, but wait”.

So instead of becoming impatient and trying to handle things in our own strength, we should live in the knowledge that God has heard our prayer and leave it up to Him to answer in His awesome time.
