Shownotes: How to Operate in God’s Timing
Prioritize the Kingdom
“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” (Matthew 6:33, NLT)
“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:10 NIV)
Pray for Divine Dreams
““For God does speak—now one way, now another—
though no one perceives it.
In a dream, in a vision of the night,
when deep sleep falls on people
as they slumber in their beds,
he may speak in their ears
and terrify them with warnings,
to turn them from wrongdoing
and keep them from pride,
to preserve them from the pit,
their lives from perishing by the sword.” (Job 33:14-18, NIV)
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” (Exodus 20:8-11, ESV)
- The Sabbath is a holy rhythm that helps us align with God’s timing.
- It’s a biblical way to be refreshed and exercise trust in God’s provision.
- You can do more by doing less when you actively involve God in the process. The Sabbath is a tangible way to do that.
“A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.” (Proverbs 22:1, ESV)
- In business and ministry, you can only go at the speed of trust.
- You are either creating trust, growing trust, or repairing trust.
- The less time you spend repairing trust, the more time you can spend creating and growing.
- Jesus was presence driven with the Father, but purpose shaped what he was doing.
- When He was just 12 years old, he said, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” (Luke 2:49 NKJV)
- 1 John 3:8 (NASB) confirms that Jesus spent his time to accomplish a specific purpose: “The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.”
Understand the Times & Act Accordingly
“Of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command.” (1 Chronicles 12:32, ESV)
