The words of Isaiah 66 verse 9:
9 ” Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the Lord.
“Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God.
God is a God who brings things to the time of birth and causes delivery.
Just as a child matures for 9 months in its mother before birth, God has a time for everything. Just as 9 months is the optimal time that an unborn child must mature and one does not want it arriving too long before or after that time, so those things we seek from God, answers to prayer, have an optimal time to arrive, and one does not want them happening before or after that time.
God knows best and we must trust Him when we pray and ask Him, petition Him for things. The fact what we want hasn’t arrived yet, does not mean He hasn’t heard us. It may well be, that it isn’t time yet, and for the thing to happen when we think it should, would actually not be a good thing.
No mother wants a premature baby. We don’t want a premature answer to prayer.
Lets leave the timing of things with God.
Lets be assured, God hears us when we pray and brings to the time of birth, and causes delivery.
