“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time,” – 1 Peter 5:6
The proper time.
God exalts those who follow Him. It may be in different ways than others, and it may come in a way we definitely did not expect. God moves the way God moves, and when He wants to.
The proper time is always the toughest for many of us to deal with. Searching for jobs, healing, or just hoping a day goes the way we want it to tends to focus on our time. In my opinion, that puts God in a box, and it’s backwards.
I need what God wants for me and I want to remember to be mindful of His time, His presence, and His blessing.
