On Time!

Bible Text:

Philippians 4:19

Materials You Need:

An alarm clock with movable hands.
(preferably a wind-up type).

Age Group:

Grades 4 - 8 (10 to 14 years).


God is never late in answering prayers.


I'm on time!


I have brought my alarm clock to the meeting as I was worried that I would be late.  But, as you see, I was on time!   Have you been praying recently and you feel that God is far away?  Perhaps He is too busy to hear your prayers.  Or may be He is behind this month, and the answer to your prayers is late in coming.  Is this true?  No, it's not!  God is never late.  The Bible tells us that God not only hears our prayers, but He knows what we are going to ask.  In Psalm 139:4 David said:

"Before I speak a word You know what I am going to say."

Right Way:

Jesus told us to ask and it will be given to us.  We also need to seek God, and by knocking on His door in prayer, Jesus said that the door will be opened to us.  This means God hears our prayers and will answer us.  In Matthew 7:10 Jesus said:

"How much more will your Father in Heaven
give good gifts to those who ask Him!"

Right Time:

What can we learn from my clock?  It needs to be set to the correct time.  I also need to set the alarm so that I will get up in good time to go to work.  And then I will be on time so I will not get into trouble with my boss!

What about God?  He created time and not only that, He promised to meet our every need.  In Philippians 4:19 the Apostle Paul says:

"My God shall supply all your needs
according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

On Time:

Well, my clock says my time is about up.  What about God you say?  He knows what we need and what is best for us.   He is always "On Time" in answering our prayers in His own special way.  In fact God is never late, but always answers us:

On Time, In Time, All the Time, and Every Time!"

Think about that!

God bless.
