Genesis 21:1 And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken.
Ordering items by mail order or over the internet can be great fun and a real time saver. However, there are those times when after you place an order, you then wait, wait, and then wait some more for the delivery, which seems to take an eternity to arrive. The ad said to allow 1 to 2 weeks for delivery. Nevertheless, you were at the mailbox every day; just certain they were going to send it early. Then when it got there, you were so excited about it finally arriving and you check to find out, it arrived right on time, just like they said. However, it sure did seem like a really long time to wait.
God’s deliverance on His promises toward believers may sometimes seem very much like the long waited for package in our lives. In the verse today, we see God was there when He said He would be and delivered what He said He would deliver.
Through the process of anticipation, God teaches us to be patient, and to wait on Him. He will give us exactly what we need and exactly when we need it. However, God is never a minute too early, and He is never late. God is always right on time.
What are you asking God for today? Are you praying according to His will? Are you praying with faith believing? We need always to believe that even though it may seem like an eternity, God is never late, and He never lies. He will be there, just as He promises He will.
