“We made a huge decision,” our friends reported as we shared prayer requests. In a great step of faith, they’d decided to sell their dream home so the wife could stay home with their young children.
July 1 was the drop-dead date for a contract so she could withdraw from her teaching contract. But weeks ticked by and the house sat. As the months dragged on, they began to worry. They were praying, so why hadn’t the house sold? Their plans seemed on hold or worse, thwarted.
At what felt like the last possible opportunity, a buyer came, the house sold, they found a wonderful new house and – as only God can do – the wife was able to help another family desperate for a tutor.
We may know God’s timing is perfect, but we don’t always know the full implications of His perfection. Knowing how God works through time can help us rest rather than fret. Here are 7 reasons we can trust God’s timing.
