Divine haste? I’m normally in a hurry. Managing a job and a radio ministry takes effort and planning, so I’ve always felt being timely, sure I get from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible, is a good thing. There’s no time to waste, and I want to use every bit of it I can get.
Think about it. However, sometimes being in a hurry can reap the opposite of what you are trying to achieve; especially when you are trying to do things to God’s glory without first consulting with God as to whether or not He would have you make haste or not.
God’s Word tells us: “Moses…saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people. Looking this way and that and seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand” (Exodus 2:11-12).
Hurry isn’t in God’s vocabulary. God has a timetable that isn’t dependent on time at all, because time is something that God uses and not the other way around. When we act rashly, before we take things in prayer to God, we actually put time in control over us. Act wisely. If God isn’t worried about time, I guess you and I shouldn’t be either. Divine haste? Not likely.
“Heavenly Father, forgive us when we hurry to get things done. Getting done may be necessary, but it should never be the norm in how we live them Help us to slow down and enjoy the life you have given us. In Jesus name, Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
