“If the request is wrong, God says, No. If the timing is wrong, God says, Slow. If you are wrong, God says, Grow. But if the request is right, the timing is right and you are right, God says, Go!”
– Bill Hybels
It is often hard to understand why God does not promote us, or offer us a contract when so-and-so, who isn’t that great a writer, got one instead. Or, why is it that my friend who is an agent did not take me on as a client?
Life is not fair. I taught my son that when he was a toddler playing in the sandbox. It was my way of preparing him for life’s disappointments.
As a believer though, aren’t we supposed to walk in the favor of God?
Though it is hard to understand all of the ins and outs in the publishing world, one thing we can be assured of as a Christian is, God knows best.
May you be encouraged today, after reading the words of Bill Hybels above, that in God’s perfect timing, He will move on your behalf. And when we look back with that hindsight perspective, we will see the wisdom in His working things out the way He has.
