We serve a God who knows all and sees all, so he timing is always perfect, every outcome of every scenario he sees. This is why we can trust that we can place everything in his hands. Faith is so important because if we are to grow in relationship with him, we need to submit and acknowledge what he can do:
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Throughout the whole bible we can read of accounts of people who had to develop the faith in God which cause them to act and against all odds to be victorious. God always showed up right on time.
Abraham had to wait years for a son from his wife Sarah and even though they were both very old, God still showed up right on time. Then when the son grew older, God further tested Abraham’s faith by asking him the sacrifice his son to him. Just as Abraham was about to do it, God showed up just on time again and provided a lamb for him to sacrifice, as he knew Abraham loved him enough and trusted him enough to make a the ultimate sacrifice a father could ever make. (You can read about this in Genesis Chapter 22)
Gideon had to trust that God would deliver the army of the medianites into his hand with only 300 men, when there was over 20,000 of them, but God showed up on time and he had the victory.
When the Assyrian army were threatening to destroy Israel and Israel were outnumbered, even through the odds were stacked against Israel, God showed up on time when Israel’s King prayed:
2Ki 19:35 And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead.
When King David was first anointed King he did not take up his rightful throne until years later, when it was God timing for it to happen.
One of the hardest lessons for people to learn is the lesson of patience. As human being we always want things done in our time and when it does not happen, we begin to doubt. However to operate in faith, we must see the thing as completed even before it truly happens.
Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
The enemy wants us to doubt, he wants us to be impatient because he knows it will take away the power God has given us to overcome.
One of the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5 is Longsuffering or patience and in order for us not to fulfil the lust of the flesh, we have to walk in the spirit, in other words operate and act as the Holy Spirit directs us.
God will always show up on time as we trust in him, that is his promise to us and he cannot lie.
Therefore we should not listen to the opinions of the world because the natural man does not receive the things of God because they are spiritually discerned, so they sound like foolishness to him.
So trust God today and watch him show up for you right on time!
Parallel Business Principals
When building our Reliv businesses we need to put God first, we have the tendency to get so busy in our day to day activities that God takes a back seat, but this should never be the case. Our success in our business is going to be determined by our attitude towards God and towards work. God will show up on time if we show up for work!
We will go through challenges in our business because it is through the challenges that our character is developed.
We need to understand that in order to be successful in Reliv we have to be able to rise above the challenges of life and trust in God. He is never early, never late, but always on time.
But remember, he will show up for us as we show up for work!
