It says in Hebrews 11:40, “since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.”
God’s timing will never go wrong. We incline to dwell in our own strength, skills, and time. We forget how to trust the One who is in control. Even though we forget, He never forgets but continues to wait until we’re ready to receive that great blessing He has for us.
Bro. Elmo Malveda shared how his touching moment with the Lord changed his life and his perspective. He used to be a typical church attendee and worker but everything changed when he started losing his job and had no other choice but to be an OFW. He worked in Bahrain, where he didn’t have a chance to go to a Christian church until he moved to Dubai. As he earned for his family, he lost his connection with the Lord. He confessed that the worst thing he said is “Hindi ko na Siya kailangan dahil kaya ko namang humanap ng trabaho doon kase through experience sa ibang bansa. Kaya ko na mag-isa”.
It seems like the enemy was disputing him because of his job. He earned a little but only enough to get his Visa back to come home. He was able to go home. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to save money for his family.
He was given the chance to attend ExCel again with his wife and had one prayer. His only prayer at that time is “Lord, touch me again”. Truly, he had an encounter with the Lord and characterized it peaceful that it seems like he was the only one in that place.
Indeed, he was able to receive that great blessing and was able to serve God. He knew that his purpose is not only to earn money for a living but to share the Word of God. The Word that will touch every heart and will welcome you back to your true home.
