Free Christian Sermons: God Is Always On Time

God is always on time even when He seems late.

This great truth of life it is proven numerous times in the Bible in situations where God’s timing proved to be the right time.

Mordecai and Haman
The first Biblical example of God always being on time is from the book of Esther where we see King Ahaseurus developing insomnia one night.

The Bible tells us that the king could not sleep and so he Commanded his servant to bring the book of the records and read it to him. (Esther 6:1) 

As the history books were being read, they came across the passage where it was written how Mordecai had saved the king’s life by revealing a plot by his doorkeepers to assassinate him.

King Ahaseurus then asked how Mordecai had been rewarded for this deed and he was informed that Mordecai had not been rewarded. (Esther 6:1)

Early the next morning, the king waited with bated breath for the first person to come into his court. 

Haman, who was a powerful official in his government, happened to be the first person to come into the court that morning To suggest to the king that Mordecai should be hanged on the gallows that he had built (Esther 6:4) simply because Mordecai did not bow or pay him homage. (Esther 3:5)  

The king then asked Haman, “What should be done for a man whom the King wants to honor?” (Esther 6:6)

Upon hearing the question, Haman asked himself within his heart, “Whom would the king want to honor more than me?” (Esther 6:6) He assumed that the king wanted to honor him and thus answered the king’s question by saying that that person should be rewarded by having him dressed by a noble prince with a royal robe. He should also be given a horse with a royal crest on its head and paraded on horseback through the city square with the proclamation, “This is what shall be done to the person whom it pleases the king to honor” been made before him. (Esther 6:8-9)

The king then commanded Haman to go and do all those great things for Mordecai.

Haman had no choice but to obey the king and dress Mordecai with a royal robe and lead him on horseback through the city square while proclaiming, “Thus shall it be done for the man whom it pleases the king to honor.” (Esther 6:8-9)

From these events, we can see that God was not late even though some time had passed since Mordecai had saved the king's life and failed to be rewarded for it.

We can also see that God is always on time because the night that King developed insomnia was the same night that it was read to him how Mordecai had saved his life but had not been rewarded and the same night that he felt in his heart that Mordecai should be rewarded with immediate effect and the night that preceded the morning when powerful Haman was coming to ask for Mordecai’s life after he had finished building gallows that were 50 cubits high to hang Mordecai.

Therefore, understand that even if you have done some great deeds that were not rewarded by humans, God has not forgotten and He will repay you at the right time.

Secondly, understand that even if it seems that you have run out of time to save your life or your health or your family or your finances or your ministry or your career, and your enemies have finalized their “foolproof” plans to finish you, it is not over because their plans are not God-proof.

This is because God can use any means necessary including causing Kings to develop sleepless nights so that He can save you since My thoughts are not your thoughts and neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than yours and My thoughts than yours. (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Therefore, do not waste your days worrying or your nights thinking about all the elaborate plans that your enemies have set to destroy you for The Protector of Israel does not slumber or sleep (Psalm 121:4) and even at midnight He can turn the tables on your enemies and turn your situation around.

Therefore believe that The Lord God is your protector and He is by your side to protect you. The sun will not hurt you during the day nor the moon at night for the Lord will protect you from all evil. (Psalm 121:5-7)
