To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the Heaven:
READ: Acts 2:1-4
1. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
As Jesus promised, when the day of Pentecost was fully come, the Holy Spirit duly came upon His disciples. In like manner, Elizabeth, despite the delay with bearing the fruit of the womb, conceived and gave birth to John the Baptist in the fullness of God’s time (Luke 1:11-16). These events confirm that our God is a God of times and seasons as it is written in Daniel 2:20-21.
The Almighty God moves very fast whenever He wants to do something. If it appears that He is slow in taking any action, you can be sure that it is because the set time has not fully come. God is not a slow worker at all. As we see in Genesis 1, He created the entire universe in just six days.
Delay however, may not always be a good thing. In 1 Samuel 17:51, we see how God helped David to move quickly. Had David delayed in separating the head of Goliath from his body after stoning him to the ground, things could have ended differently.
1 Samuel 17:51 says:
Therefore, David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.
One characteristic of God’s fullness of time is its sudden arrival. We see this in the Holy Ghost baptism experience in Acts 2:1-2. Similarly, it took God just one day to kick away famine from Samaria as we see in 2 Kings 7:1-18. When God moved, food became surplus in the land where people had started killing their own children for food (2 Kings 6:24-29).
You must have confidence in God that He is able to do whatever you desire. According to Hebrews 10:35-36, that is the only way you can receive the promise. As you patiently wait for God’s time, you will encounter God and receive sudden breakthroughs this season. Your day of celebration will come fully, in the mighty name of Jesus.
Father, please let my breakthrough come suddenly, such that it would shock and destabilize my enemies, in the mighty name of Jesus.
