“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6, NIV
“At just the right time!” These five simple words caught my attention and captivated my heart and mind.
Everything God does is On Purpose, With Purpose, and For Purpose. God is an on-time God! In the heavenly realm, God does not keep up with a watch or clock, but we allow “time” to influence our actions, thoughts, and decisions here on earth.
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” (2 Peter 3:8) NIV
Simple but profound, these five words compel me to submit my will for God’s Will.
I say this because “at just the right time,” Christ entered the world through the Virgin Mary.
“At just the right time,” Christ died for our sins so that we may receive grace and mercy.
“At just the right time,” Christ rose from the dead and is living and interceding for us at the right hand of God. So, at just the right time, God will make a way for you and me!
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:18–19) NIV
Hence, everything on earth lives, moves, breathes, and has its being “at just the right time!” Nothing on earth happens unless it is spoken into manifestation by God. In the creation story, God said,
“Let there be light, and there was light.”
“Let there be a vault between the waters to separate the sky from the water.”
“Let the water be gathered to one place so the dry ground can appear.”
“Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land…”
“Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night…”
“Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.”
“Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.”
“Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness…”
“God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.”
God blessed them, and God has blessed YOU! You have a purpose; you have worth, and you are valuable to your Heavenly Father. He created you “at just the right time!” (Genesis 1:3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, 28–29, 31) NIV
Therefore, the creation story is enough to know that God is in control and everything will happen in your life “at just the right time.” So, whether you are worried, stressed, frustrated, weary, feared, disappointed, or any other negative emotion, do not succumb to those feelings and ways of thinking. God is with you and will deliver you “at just the right time!”
“For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose.” (Philippians 2:13) NIV
Omnipotent God, who knows everything, thank you for knowing what is best for me and when the timing is right. I surrender to your Will and lay my burdens at your feet, believing that at just the right time, you will deliver, save, guide, protect, and provide for me. In Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen~
