We know how long it takes for a baby to form before it is born.
We know how long it takes for certain crops to mature, ready for harvest.
We know how long it takes for the earth to make its journey around the sun.
Yet, there are so many things that we have no idea how long we will have to wait for.
In fact, we are not even sure that some of the things we are waiting for will ever take place.
God sent His Son, Jesus, to the earth at just the right time.
Jesus was not early in coming, nor was He late.
In our own lives, God is in control of time.
We pray, and God answers in His time frame.
He will never be late with an answered prayer.
He will never be early with an answered prayer.
When the set time has come, He will work in the lives of His children according to His will.
Through faith, we must trust Him completely to care for us as our all-knowing Father.
But when the set time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman,
born under the law, to redeem those under the law,
that we might receive adoption to sonship.
Because you are His sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”
So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child;
and since you are His child, God has made you also an heir.
