Luke 1: 57 “When it was time for Elizabeth to have her baby, she gave birth to a son.”
It took 9 months for her son to grow within her. God could have done a miracle but He waited. He waited within the restricted time.
Some things take time. It would appear to Google that getting the perfect boiled egg is indeed a science there are so many pages on this but it boils down to time!
On the Gmaps app on my phone it will tell me with a fair degree of accuracy how long the distance of travel will take whether I am driving, on the train, walking or on a bike. How clever that we can plan our lives around time and how time restricts us. How strange that the one thing we have done all our lives is to try and beat time?!!
Miracles are not necessarily instantaneous. Breakthroughs are often accompanied by careful carrying of responsibility for that breakthrough.
Is time your friend or foe?
Submit your prayers to the time restriction that God wants to use. They are never wasted or lost.
