In the 1800’s, God’s conviction fell on a bakery owner in Bristol, England, while George Müller was praying for food for his orphanages. The children were in dire need of food that day. The Lord awakened a bakery owner across town who felt God’s conviction to get up, call an employee and ask him to go to the shop to bake a day’s amount of bread for the orphans. Then on second thought, he told the employee, “Bake enough for a month so that I can get some sleep.” The Holy Spirit doesn’t spring everything on us all at once. He usually convicts us to change or make adjustments in our life when He knows we are ready. His timing is incredible and He invites us to approach Him without fear. “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Heb. 4:16). He wants us to come boldly to His throne.
His timing is incredible!
