God’s Not the One Who’s Late…

2 May

If Jesus is sleeping in your boat, it’s not because He’s waiting for you to wake Him up with your wailing or earnest prayers. It’s because you have divine purpose…

Some teachers teach that God likes to wait until the last minute to intervene and show His sovereignty. They think that’s His cute and clever way of showing He was in control the whole time. You hear people say, ‘God’s never early or late, but He’s always right on time.’ But God doesn’t work that way. If He always intervenes at the last minute, it’s often because we didn’t use the tools we’d been given in the first place.
