Suddenly, everythingthat you have been waiting on will happen. Hold on to your faith and hope in the Lord. He has not forgotten you or His promises.


To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. . .  He hath made every thing beautiful in his time . . . . (Ecclesiastes 3: 1-14)
In Psalm 13, in agony David cries out to the Lord “how long  . . .” would he have to wait for help. Like David so many of us are under severe pressure right now.  I also asked “How long, Lord?” I have needs; I have friends and loved one with needs. I told my co-workers that You would help. Lord where is the help? The Lord’s answer was “Suddenly!”   
In the book of Acts, on the day of Pentecost the disciples were waiting 50 days for God; the Bible said that “suddenly” God showed up without warning. He showed up on time! He came at just the right moment! In our limited human understanding we think that God can be late. Like Lazarus’ sister we too think that Jesus is late because someone or something in our lives has died.   Not true . These times of hardship are allowed by God to strengthen the faithful and help the unfaithful realize that they need God. 
Many of us are tempted to do something drastic. God wants us to know that help is on the way. His word tells us that He is looking to help those who want help from Him. (Proverbs 30) Don’t look down; it’s not a sin to feel afraid. Don’t look around; your help will not originate from others. Don’t look inside of yourself; you aren’t wise enough to configure this one out. Look up! Look to heaven; your help is coming from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth!
Suddenly or without warning, the help you have asked God for will show up, but will you be ready? The Lord wants us to stay in a continuous state of readiness to move to the next season of our lives. Don’t let the pressures of life keep you from being ready. Look up and trust God. He’s never late and He knows what’s best.
Despite the suffering that Jesus knew He would face going to the cross for our sins, He was ready to go because of the season of Grace His death would make available to us. It is because of Jesus that we have access to any other blessing. God through Jesus Christ is calling us to enter our suddenly season. Will you be ready? Will you answer the call?
