God's timing is incredible.
He's always working behind the scenes of our lives, often using bad things for our good (Romans 8:28). We don't always see His intervention, but sometimes He gives us a glimpse, like the one in Esther 2-6:
King Xerxes had been tricked into signing a proclamation to kill every Jew in his kingdom.
The night before Queen Esther was going to beg the King to reverse the proclamation, the King couldn't sleep.
It wasn't heartburn or too much caffeine. It was God who woke Xerxes and prompted him to go through some old records. And that night he discovered that a Jew named Mordecai had once saved his life.
When Esther approached the king the following day, Xerxes was grateful for Mordecai and ready to help the Jews.
God works behind the scenes in our lives as well, working bad for good. Sometimes He even gives us a glimpse.
Have you had any of these glimpses in your life? I'd love to have you share them in a comment below this devotion HERE.
