Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 107

107. The right time for me has not yet come; for you any time is right (John 7:6).

Time is the one dimension of life we can’t get our arms around. We can’t speed it up, slow it down, or alter its quantity. We seek to manage it effectively, but time is the lion we can never fully tame. When we speak of timing, we see our inability to master time most clearly. For timing provides the “when” of our moments–and we find ourselves without control. God has a timing, and it seldom aligns with the pace we would choose. We want what we want when we want it, but God controls time and proves his mastery of its use for greater purposes. For us, the “now” is almost always the preference. For God, “now” doesn’t always mean “right.”
