People are always asking me, “How do I know the timing of God?” or “How do I know when to step out in a calling?” Jesus gives us the best insight, He give us the secret to His success when He says: “For I say only what I have heard from the one who sent me, and he is completely truthful.” (John 8:26) and “I do nothing on my own but say only what the Father taught me.” (John 8:28) The more consistent and intimate our relationship is with God, the more we will hear and recognize His voice. The closer we walk with Jesus, the further we go in His calling. Your purpose and call is an outflow of your relationship with Him so if you are frustrated with timing, take your eyes off the clock and fix them on Jesus! God has never revealed to me a specific time or date when He has placed a future calling on my heart, but if you are listening to Him, He always reveals when His timing is at hand. My calling and my purpose are being discovered as I walk with the Lord on a daily basis one step at a time! God will reveal His timing to you, so stay close so you will hear what He says and when He says it, and the timing will then be obvious.
