" I trusted in, relied on, and was confident in you, O Lord; I said, You are my God.

" My times are in Your hands; deliver me from the hands of my foes and those who pursue me and persecute me."
PSALM 31:14,15

In this chapter the Psalmist was saying that he trusted God to deliver him, and he trusted him to do it at the right time. Trust requires us to say, "My times are in your hands."

I have learned that trust requires us to accept that some questions will be unanswered and to place our times in God's hands-- believing that even though we do not know all the answers, He does. He has perfect timing for all things in our lives. We all desire and believe for good things to happen in our lives, NOW --- not Later!
As we continuously mature in the christian life, we learn to believe for things not now but in Gods perfect timing. Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. "We can always have faith now, but we cannot always have the manifestation now.

Trusting God often requires not knowing how God is going to accomplish what needs to be done and not knowing when He will do it. We always say, "God is never late," but He is generally not early either. Why? Because He uses those opportunities to stretch our faith in Him, and we grow during times of waiting.
Why does God sometimes wait until the very last day or minute?
The reason is that He is teaching us lessons in trust!
TRUST IS NOT INHERITED: IT IS LEARNED! We learn to trust God by going through various experiences that require trust.
If He did everything we asked for immediately, we would never grow and develop. Timing and trust are twins. They work side by side.

No matter what may come your way, your life is in His hands.
