Psalm 37:7 – “Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him…”

The Bible says, for everything there is time and season: a time to labour and a time to reap the product of grace. Sometimes we work very hard and pray fervently without a corresponding reward for our effort. It is the mind of God to answer prayers. Even when He seems not to respond immediately to our petitions, He is still saying something, which we may not understand because of our limitations in the things of the Spirit. In such moments, God may be saying, “Be patient; for there is a time and season for everything.
The plan of God for us is beautiful. Everything is beautiful in its time, yet that time is limited. The beauty in creation is that human beings long for eternity, yet they cannot understand what God has done from the beginning to the end (Eccl. 3:11). God allows everything to take place at their appointed time and season. We may not understand it, but it is this that constitutes the beauty in creation.
