The expression “timing is everything” applies to many aspects of life. Whether its buying a house, finding the right job or waiting to marry the right person, the environment has to be ideal for you to receive the desires of your heart. Beyond the natural, sometimes the presence of the supernatural can lead you to heights never reached before.
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus, Acts 4:13.
The fear of public speaking is a common struggle for the ineloquent, uneducated and those who are insecure. Something about talking in front of large crowds can make the confident feel uneasy. Yet, for Peter and John, fishermen without a high school diploma, these men possessed an uncanny ability to convince their audience about Jesus. Invisible to the religious leaders, the presence of an extraordinary God spoke through these disciples.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible,” Matthew 19:26.
If you are like me, you have endured periods of failure, Despite your dedication, efforts and hard work, success is no where to be found. This is where Jesus’ words to his disciple come into play, man’s attempts will come up short. Therefore, when things aren’t going your way, reach out for help. Then, on the wings of angels and prayer, the presence of an extraordinary God may visit you soon.
