Right on Time

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6

The PZ was set with all troops and vehicles in place. The only thing left was to watch the clock. I knew the Blackhawk helicopters wouldn’t touch down until it was time. Helicopter pilots have a strict standard for arriving at plus or minus 30 seconds. I knew they wouldn’t be early or late. Nothing to do but relax. Now, why can’t we do that with God? I mean the life-giving work of the cross, the most significant event in history, happened right on time. And yet, we wonder if Jesus can handle the timing of our next assignment, the birth of a child, or even simple things like the weather. Our aviators are good, God is perfect. Relax and trust Him, His timing is perfect. SP218
