“What I am doing you do not understand now — but afterward you will understand.” John 13:7
In divine providence, nothing comes a moment too soon or too late — but everything comes in its own complete time. God’s clock is never too slow. Every link of the chain of God’s providence, fits into its own place.
We do not see God’s hand at the time. Not until afterward, will you see that your disappointments, hardships, trials, and the wrongs inflicted on you by others — are parts of God’s good providence toward you, and full of blessing. Not until afterward will you see it, but the “afterward” is secure to faithful followers of Christ. The “afterward” of every disappointment or sorrow — is blessing and good. We only need to learn to wait in patience for Him.
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
