An Appointed Time For Promise

Leviticus 26:3-4 – “If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them, then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.”

Quick note.  Be diligent in righteousness.  We are a generation of “give it to me nows!” God is outside the realm of time, so He does not move in chronological fashion, yet rather by appointment.  Blessing and promise have their appointed time, if you keep the precepts of God.  He’s more moved by your willingness to keep His statutes rather than by your wants.  God’s promises aren’t instantaneously obtained through obedience, but His peace is.  Peace is instant; promise is appointed.  We want to obey for the moment and receive promise now!  Peace we can get, now, that will sustain us to our awaiting promise & blessing.  Be more concerned with the statutes than the promises.  The gift of promise is inevitable and it is appointed.  But you arrive at that appointment through continual practice of God’s precepts.  Achieving a promise/blessing is a “kairos” moment that is only gained through “chronos” obedience.  Promises and blessings are absolute at their position and time, but obedience is the vehicle that will get you in position at the right time.  Otherwise, your promises will remain at their appointed time & place while you go nowhere fast through pride and disobedience, blaming God for never seeing your blessings come to pass.  Walk in the statutes and the rain WILL come in it’s SEASON!

    Very good post my frriend, It is very hard to sit and be patient but if we wait on God’s time instead of s we find not only are we happier but the blessing is much more than we could have ever imagined and the impact and outcome is greater than we could have done ourselves.. Thank you for reminding me to slow down and wait on God. Something I heard when I was a kid comes tod I remember my old youth pastor saying ” Let go and let God” it took me many years to understand that, in fact I’m still having too. Thanks again bro
