PSALM 102:13

You will arise and have mercy and loving kindness for Zion, for it is time to have pity and compassion for her, yes, the set time, is come – the moment designated. Amp

God always has His timing in every situation. We enter by His grace and mercy when He alone opens the door. He brings us through many things that we may think are a big mistake and never should have happened. But He sees down the line and is always concerned for our good. He knows what we need to best mold us into the vessel of honor that He will use for His glory.

He delights greatly in mercy and cannot wait for the set time to come for each of us to receive His wonderful loving-kindness. He knows how to prepare us for that day. By then we can see how we have been prepared to see the goodness in all our pain and we can rejoice!

We all have our times of testing and trials. When we pass a test it seems we move on to harder tests, just like in school. But there comes a time for graduation. It doesn’t mean trials stop. It means maturity has begun. We have grown up and the Lord gives us the responsibility of entering His promised rest.

It is time for us to use the power of the Holy Spirit and to focus on the good the Lord will bring in our life instead of our own weakness as Joshua and Caleb did.

The set time has come for us to rest in His goodness and provision, knowing we are safe in the midst of snakes and serpents.


“It is impossible to understand God’s grace until we come to the end of our own resources and experience His mercy. That grace delivers us from all shame and guilt.”
