“These things will come to pass . . . in their time,” was Gabriel’s answer to Zachariah. The old priest had not known how to factor in God’s timing into his destiny and purpose. God not only has a plan, He has a specific time-frame to manifest it. Many of life’s frustrations come because we have no understanding of God’s TIMING for our gifts and callings. God’s TIMING rarely flows within the confines of our logic or agenda. Learning to recognize His TIMING can be the key to fulfilling our calling. If we are out of sync with God’s timing, we need not expect confirmations. There is not anyone or anything positioned to confirm us along life’s path if we miss God-ordained appointments. —Kathy
Paul had a God-ordained appointment to get to. He was traveling in a ship that was in the middle of a storm and the ship was in danger of sinking. Other people were making decisions about that journey and about that ship and were saying things that were in agreement with what was apparent in the present set of circumstances. In Acts 27:17 experienced seamen were “fearing” and in v.20 things had escalated to the point that the report is “all hope was taken away”. In v.11 the centurion had already listened to something said by an experienced sea captain and was putting 276 people in peril for their lives and v.12 says “the majority favored the plan of putting to sea”. Experienced people and the majority put the loss of the ship and everyone’s life in peril because “someone said”.
