THE FULLNESS OF TIME Acts 2:1-4
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: – Ecclesiastes 3:1
As Jesus promised, when the day of Pentecost was fully come, the Holy Spirit duly came upon His disciples. In like manner, Elizabeth, despite the delay with bearing the fruit of the womb, conceived and gave birth to John the Baptist in the fullness of God’s time (Luke 1:11-16). These events confirm that our God is a God of times and seasons as it is written in Daniel 2:20-21.
The Almighty God moves very fast whenever He wants to do something. If it appears that He is slow in taking any action, you can be sure that it is because the set time has not fully come. God is not a slow worker at all. As we see in Genesis 1, He created the entire universe in just six days.
Delay however, may not always be a good thing. In 1 Samuel 17:51, we see how God helped David to move quickly. Had David delayed in separating the head of Goliath from his body after stoning him to the ground, things could have ended differently.
Read 1 Samuel 17:51 One characteristic of God’s fullness of time is its sudden arrival. We see this in the Holy Ghost baptism experience in Acts 2:1-2. Similarly, it took God just one day to kick away famine from Samaria as we see in 2 Kings 7:1-18. When God moved, food became surplus in the land where people had started killing their own children for food (2 Kings 6:24-29).
According to Hebrews 10:35-36, that is the only way you can receive the promise. As you patiently wait for God’s time, you will encounter God and receive sudden breakthrough this season. Your day of celebration will come fully, in the mighty name of Jesus.
PRAYER LINE: Father, please let my breakthrough come suddenly, such that it would shock and destabilize my enemies, in the mighty name of Jesus. (O.H)
You must have confidence in God that He is able to do whatever you need.
