Right thing wrong time

Someone once said timining is everything. And the timing we are interested in is God's timing.

Today I read in my daily devotions in Numbers 14 the account of the Israelites first foray into the land that God had promised. They got scared and their vision of the problems was greater than their belief in God. This resulted in God postponing the plan to take the land for 40 years.

Realising their mistake they decided to invade the land any way. The right thing to do. God's ultimate plan but it was not now God's timing.

They refused to listen to God when he told them to go and when he told them to stay. So they ended up going after God's plan only to find out God was no longer there.

If we listening to God and doing the right thing at the right time, God's time, then nothing can stop us.
