Today’s devotion for today is based on Galatians 4:4, “When the set time had fully come, God sent his Son.”
You have probably heard the phrase, “Timing is everything.” It’s the same when it comes to God’s timing for Jesus’ birth. Immediately after our first parents had fallen into sin, God promised to send a Savior. But he fulfilled that promise according to his own pace. Over thousands of years, God carefully guided history until the timing was just right. Then he sent his Son.
God is guiding your life just as carefully. Time and again, he has made it clear that the answer to life is not within you. Time and again, he has brought you into contact with the only Savior from sin you’ve got. It is no accident that this devotion from God’s Word is entering your mind and heart at this very moment. God’s timing for Jesus’ birth was perfect. Trust his timing in your life, too.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Thank you, Lord, for sending your Son into this world at just the right time. Thank you for giving faith so that I can believe in you and your salvation. Please help me to trust your timing in my life as well. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
