God’s Timetable – Part One | Saturday | August 25


For the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

–Isaiah 52:12 NIV

Here are some building blocks for you to consider while fulfilling what God is calling you to accomplish.

Plan, Purpose, & Passion: As a Believer, you can be confident that God has a good plan and purpose for your life. It’s important that you continuously seek God and ask Him to reveal His plan for your life, so you can go about working toward such endeavors. Real passion can never be assigned to you by others; it is something that is found within you. It’s that inner zeal that causes you to arise and pursue the things you profoundly know God has called you to accomplish.

Pause, Preparation, & Patience: Passion, purpose, and action that lacks proper understanding, information, and preparation can be regarded as foolishness from God’s perspective. God is not in a hurry to get you to the place where you zealously want to arrive. Why? Because passion used wrongly can injure others, dishonor God’s name, and harm you. God often has to do His good works within you before He does mightier things through you. Thus, it’s important to wait patiently as God strategically unfolds His good plans for your life.

Prayer Focus

  • Thank God for placing remarkable dreams and ambitions into your mind and heart to aim to achieve and accomplish with His help.
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to help you be responsible in the current opportunities God has given you in this season of preparation.
