Mid-Week Challenge

Paul reminds us in Galatians 4:4 that at just the right time (God’s time), Jesus came into the world to accomplish what had been promised.  

At just the right time. During this time of the year “time” is something we never seem to have enough of.  In addition, it is a great season of waiting.  The story of Jesus and the meaning wrapped into Paul’s words should cause us to reflect on whatever stage of life we might be in and rest in hope in the Lord.  You might be struggling through something right now, or you are about to go into a great time of trial.  Our life is full of ups and downs, disappointments and highlights, but it is hard to think about them being “right on time;” but, that is how God works.      

One thing I love best about Christmas is how it reminds us that “nothing is impossible with God.” Mary is reminded of this truth in Luke 1:37. Whatever you are waiting or wanting for in this moment know that when the time comes God will deliver at just the right time.  While we wait, let us adopt the attitude of Mary as she replied. “I am the LORD’s servant. May your word to me be fulfilled” (Luke 1:38).

One pastor puts it like this: “When we believe God's Word, we move out of what is improbable into that which becomes probable. Consider Abraham and Sarah when they were promised a child even though they were in their nineties. The angel reminded Sarah, “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” (Genesis 18:13).

All of God’s people—Mary, Abraham and Sarah, Jeremiah—had a period of waiting before they saw the visible manifestation of the promise. When God gives us a promise, it's like a seed in our heart. That His promise will not come a day early or a day late. God will bring it about right on time.

That is why I love this season.  God always keeps His promises.  There are many to be found in His word.  Why not take some time this Christmas season and explore what God has already promised you and in doing so, I pray, He opens your eyes to the blessings all around you being fulfilled. 

Serving the Savior,

Bro. Jonathan
