it probably won’t.
I’m not entirely sure why this is true, but as I scrutinize God’s providence, I arrive at this conclusion repeatedly. God has His own sense of timing, with a bent towards “11th hour and Mysterious”, so this seems to be a truth I would do well to get comfortable with. There is something altogether different about how a holy, infinite God handles time, and I suppose that makes sense. I find that as I give up my small-perspective expectations, which lean towards “Soon and Obvious”, and make friends with ambiguity, I experience a good measure of comfort that has the unmistakable feel of peace. And wonder of wonders, peace invites patience to the party where we wait together for His 11th hour surprise.
Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
