KEY SCRIPTURE: John 7:30 KJV ” Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.”
This issue of God’s timing must be considered more seriously.
God our father has specific plans with time lines for every one of His children.
When Prophet Samuel was the judge of Israel, the Israelites requested to be given a king. Samuel prayed and spoke to the Lord about it. The Lord gave him the kind of problems that the king would bring to them. The following is what the people told Samuel.1Sa 8:20 KJV” That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.” The verse 19 said they disobeyed the voice of Samuel and insisted they wanted their own king.
By their action God had no hour for them.
The Lord reluctantly accepted their choice. This is called permissive will of God.
During the time of Jesus God had His hour for the Lord Jesus. No one could alter it.
Many difficulties that certain children of God go through come as a result of their unwillingness to accept God’s way.
There have been some ministers of God who left the scene of ministry rather early because they failed to stop teaching certain heresies that the Holy Spirit prompted them to stop teaching. In some cases, the Lord asked others to warn them, yet they kept teaching error. I know of one who died through a very horrible motor accident. A blind minister friend of mine said he mysteriously became blind after resisting the call into the ministry. Dear one, it is not God who brings such tragedies to such people.

In the permissive will, God has first permitted the individual to go his way and so He would likewise permit any contrary power that intends to attack you. Prov. 1:25,26 KJV But ye have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
Dear child of God, be careful you do not lose God’s hour for your life. Dear one the laws and instructions of God are not grievous.
In actual fact they are perfect laws for your liberty.
James 1:25. Decide to obey whatever He tells you. So long as you know it is His voice, ‘break’ every resistance to obey it. Prov 4:13 KJV” Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.” Choose life by sticking to God’s instruction for your life.
THOUGHT: SATAN HAS NO SAY, IN THE LIFE THAT IS COMMITTED TO DOING THE WILL OF GOD
Psalms 119:165 KJV Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
Deut 30:19 KJV” I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:”
