Ever wondered why Jesus kept telling the people he healed to tell no one about their healing. Then it seemed like all of a sudden He went all out with the triumphal entry. That day everyone knew He was in town – Timing
luke 8:56 “And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.”
Matt 8:4 “And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.”
Time and time again He would tell them to keep shut about His miracles (although they didn’t). He would refuse to go to certain places. When the Jews were looking from Him to crucify him, he departed from the city (although that was why He came in the first place).
His reason? “my time is not yet come” (John 7:6)
Christ was literally in hiding most of the time till the time came for his showing forth and when it did, it was grand. You see if Christ had appeared before His time it would have been easy for the devil to nip him in the bud (to extinguish him).
He had not yet grown enough to battle whatever difficulties He would face in His place of assignment. If He had come out before His set time it would have been a casualty.
A lot of people are in a hurry to “make it” that they run out of their place of training before their training is complete. We have a lot of ministries starting off so strong and after a while its like no one hears about them again. If God has not told you to go out, don’t go out.
If you want to last long you have to stay long in the place of training. (It goes for every area)
David was 17 when He was called, 30 when He became King (do the math) and He became the best King ever to live.
Keep to timing! You will never regret it. Don’t be in a hurry to get out and join the rat race. God’s time is perfect!
Ecl. 3:1 “There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven”
