"Fullness of Time Is Perfect Timing"

"That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him." Ephesians 1:10
 
There is a time called "fullness". It is in that time when promises come into manifestation, when faith becomes sight, when answers come. They don't come until then. Joseph did not come to the palace until the "fullness of time". The Israelites were not delivered from Egypt until the "fullness of time". Abraham did not receive the promised son until the "fullness of time". The Savior, Jesus, did not come into the world until the "fullness of time". 
 
Why didn't Jesus come earlier? Why didn't He arrive a hundred years earlier? A thousand years earlier? Why weren't the Israelites delivered sooner? The answer is simple yet not always easy for us to understand. It is because the time "fullness" has to come. This time is determined by the sovereignty of God and the counsel of His own will. 
 
Why aren't some things happening sooner in our lives? Why are they delayed? What is holding it up? We tend to get caught up in time elements. We want things to happen right away. But there are some things that will not occur until the "fullness of time". And when is that time? It is when God says it is. 
 
When a woman gets pregnant, she doesn't give birth the next day. She has to wait until the "fullness of time" for the child's birth. When a farmer plants a seed, he doesn't harvest a crop the following week. He has to wait until the plants have grown and matured. Without the waiting, the baby would not survive and the plants would not produce fruit. This the reason for the fullness of time. 
 
When is the fullness of time? Who knows. It is different lengths of time for different situations. But what we can say about it is that it is also the "perfect time". It is perfect because it is determined and brought forth by God Himself. So we need to learn to be content, patient and trust while we are waiting on that time to come.
 
Have a great day. There is a time called "fullness". It is determined by God's sovereignty so we need to learn how to trust Him while we are waiting because it is also called "perfect timing".

Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my browser because I've had this happen previously.
