Wisdom Trusts God’s Timing (Eccl. 9) by Kemi Ayorinde #LAWisdom Devotional

#LAWisdomBible reading: Genesis 40 and Ecclesiastes 9

Wisdom Trusts God’s Timing

TEXT: “This too I carefully explored, even though the actions of godly and wise people are in God’s hands, no one knows whether God will show them mercy. Ecclesiastes9:1( NLT)


Wait for God’s time – it comes at the perfect opportunity. You might be expecting help or solution to an issue like Joseph (Gen 40:23), or from God through a particular channel, but it is not forthcoming. Don’t lose hope. You may even expect your spouse to fill the void in your heart but it isn’t happening as you envisioned, be still – God has a plan.

Like Joseph, you may anticipate quick release without result. Or you may have been waiting for that promise to be fulfilled, year after year.

Trust God. At the right time, God will make all things right.

Pray: Father Lord, You are the one that makes rich without adding sorrow. May I look to You alone for help and wait patiently, prayerfully and joyfully for Your time in Jesus name. Amen.
