Renungan harian alkitab, 1 Kings  17, selasa,” God’s  time, waktunya Tuhan”

1 Kings 18:42-44 (NKJV)  So Ahab went up to eat and drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees,

and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.” So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.”

Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’ “

Elisa melihat dan menunggu sampai tujuh kali, ia  menyuruh bujangnya naik turun gunung melihat awan hujan datang.

Waktu manusia berbeda dengan waktu Tuhan!  Manusia cenderung ingin cepat dan instan, tetapi sebaliknya Tuhan menggunakan perhitungan waktu yang tepat, tidak pernah instan dan mementingkan proses, sehingga waktu Tuhan dan waktu manusia  berbeda, dan tentu saja waktu Tuhan adalah yang paling terbaik.

Para pembaca terkasih, jikalau kita mempercayai Tuhan sepenuhnya, maka kita akan bersabar dan menantikan waktu Tuhan menggenapi segala sesuatunya, waktu Tuhan berbeda dengan waktu manusia.
