Psalm 145:13-16

Do you ever read Scripture and find yourself wondering, “is the Bible relevant today?” We definitely feel that disconnect. So we’ve set out to make Scripture meditations that give us a framework for how to start reading the Bible. Join us as we let the Bible be the Bible, and learn to engage with it meaningfully. 

All in God’s Timing

God’s timing feels off sometimes. It just does. 

….even when we try really hard to believe his timing is perfect.

And we feel okay admitting that because it doesn’t mean we don’t trust him. We’re just choosing to be honest about our doubt, and to ask him to help us wait for the provision he has in store for us! 

When it gets really hard, we try to reflect back on a time when God’s timing felt super off, but we found that it was actually spot on. Like, is anyone else just really grateful that God didn’t give them the spouse or job they first asked for? (please tell us it’s not just us!)

He was faithful in his timing then, and we know he’ll prove that to be true again! If you’re with us in this…check out today’s Scripture meditation all about God providing at the proper time.

Psalm 145:13b-16

13b The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises

    and faithful in all he does.

14 The Lord upholds all who fall

    and lifts up all who are bowed down.

15 The eyes of all look to you,

    and you give them their food at the proper time.

16 You open your hand

    and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
