He sent a man before them, who was sold as a slave. They hurt his feet with fetters, He was laid in irons. Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the LORD tested him. Psalms 105:17-18
It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.
Imagine your experience in going to the emergency room, as to going in for an appointment. Doing a walk in or an emergency visit when in need, can be an exhausting process since the wait would most likely be extensive. Appointments have a set time, and a set purpose.
Appointed: arranged; set; predetermined.
The Lord has an appointed time for us all. He had an appointed time for the birth of Isaac, whom He promised Sarah and Abraham. And He also had a set time for the savior of the world Jesus to be born. In the same way, He also had an appointed time, for Joseph to be positioned as the second in command of Egypt. Although there may be a waiting period for the promises of God to come to pass, the time of its fulfillment has already been predetermined.
It was the Lord who sent Joseph to Egypt. It’s possible that God did not plan for his brothers to hate him, or to sell him as a slave. But God intended for Joseph to be in Egypt. In Genesis 45, Joseph tells his brothers it was not you who sent me here, but God. And in Genesis 50, he told them what you meant for evil God meant for good.
In the New Testament the word kairos means “the appointed time in the purpose of God”. It is a set time window of opportunity and favor from God. Has God made promises over your life? Are you waiting for certain prophecies to come to pass?
May we all be in alignment with the kairos or appointed time of God for our lives!
Thank you Lord Jesus for raising us, and extending your favor and grace. I pray you increase our wisdom and discernment as well as strengthen our feet like the hinds feet. May we be steadfast in our faith, strong in prayer and believing what we are praying for. May we all walk in your divine timing in Jesus name, Amen.
