"As of a Rushing mighty wind" (Acts 2.2)
"Rushing" - it is a word connected with God's working in the Old Testament and in the New, from the whirlwind which Ezekiel saw, to the descent of the Spirit at Pentecost.
The word speaks of an Urgency of Accomplishment,
of a Prevailing and Overwhelming of obstacles.
of an Establishment of God's purpose beyond earth's frustrations.
When the time comes, when the conditions are ready, delay is never in the plans of God.
Jesus taught His disciples to pray "Thy kingdom come" as God's supreme objective.
To this end all creation moves, and to this end is all the working of God in the earth, and in the lives of men.
Delay is a master tactic of the enemy.
to dampen our faith,
to discourage our hearts,
to confuse our thinking,
to blind our eyes to the promises of God.
Today is the day of salvation … it is every day.
Jesus said "My father worketh." (Jn. 5.17)
There is no room for hesitation or delay in the plans of God, and no cessation of His work.
May the Lord give speed to our hearts as we reach out, beyond all that would hold us in our world, to His world and to Himself.
