Trust in God’s Timing

Walking in God’s plan for our lives means that we have to trust in His timing. The key word here is “trust”. Paul wrote it best in 2 Corinthians 5:7, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” The word “walk” in this verse doesn’t mean our physical walk. Paul is not telling us to … Read more
