“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness” 2 Corinthians 12:9

It was perfect timing when God used Moses to deliver the children of Israel out of the bondage of Egypt and sent them to the edge of the desert.  “So God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Seas…” [Exodus 13:17]

It was perfect timing when God sent His Son to the edge of the world for the deliverance of all mankind.  “But when the fullness of the time had some, God sent forth His Son…” [Galatians 4:4]

It was perfect timing when Jesus was delivered from worldly tasks and driven by the Holy Spirit to the edge of the desert, Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness…” [Matthew 4:1]

It was perfect timing when Jesus lay down His life and at the edge of darkness, gave up His spirit and said; “…”It is finished!” [John 20:30]

Four things are evident in the plan and purposes of God in every man’s life. 1] Every circumstance is in some way… the ‘edge of the desert’.   2] In every situation God proves His supremacy and sovereignty over the world, the flesh and the devil.  3] God’s grace is sufficient to complete the work man is sent to accomplish.  4] God has perfect timing, “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow…and every tongue should confess that Jesus is Lord…” [Philippians 2:10-11]

We have what we need at the starting gate, but at the end gate we ‘know’ we have what we need – His Name is Jesus.
