At the Right Time

6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. (Romans 5).

At the right time” — some of the sweetest words you’ll ever hear or see or experience.  When something happens just at the right time, just when it absolutely needed to happen (“while we were still helpless”) — but in this case it’s just when God wanted it to happen.  

At the right time” — some of the sweetest words you’ll ever hear or see or experience.  When something happens just at the right time, just when it absolutely needed to happen — yet, as in all cases, it is always just when God planned it to happen.  

We ourselves could not make it happen, for as always, we are “helpless” in so many ways.  Without God’s intervention “at the right time,” we would have remained “ungodly” and without hope.  Without God’s continued intervention in our lives through circumstances which come our way, we would never be pushed toward sanctification.

Thank You, Lord, for always coming through “at the right time” in our lives — for we are always still quite helpless.  You did it for all of humanity, and we believe You will continue to do it in different ways for each one of us, including This Day, too.  Amen.
