I like to shop on Amazon; it’s easy and keeps me from going to the store. I live close to a distribution center and can sometimes get my merchandise delivered the same day that I order it. I get excited when I see a product that offers same-day delivery. Disappointment comes when I hit the “pay” button and then see that the delivery date has changed; why that happens, I have no idea. The package still comes but is delayed. I compare it to what’s going on right now; it looks as though the New World Order is coming upon us quickly, and waiting on Jesus’s return or the earthy hero appointed by God to rescue us seems delayed. Anxiety and disappointment are running rampant among the people, but we must remember that all things will happen in God’s timing and not before. God is orderly, and nothing occurs until he gives his approval. Be patient; you are safe because your life is in the hands of God; it’s the people who’ve rejected Jesus that need to worry, not us.
For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3
