God's speed

I was reading this today:
2 Chronicles 29:35 Besides the great number of burnt offerings, there was the fat of the peace offerings, and there were the drink offerings for the burnt offerings. Thus the service of the house of the LORD was restored. 36 And Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced because God had prepared for the people, for the thing came about suddenly.

The background to this passage is that King Hezekiah wants to restore the temple, after the craziness of his dad King Ahaz. This is a major reform, and it happened within 3 weeks! This is not attributed to Hezekiah's speed, but to God's speed.

I found this so encouraging to read today, because it makes me realise how quickly God can do a great work in my country, in my city, in my council estate, in my church, in my family, and in me!

Praise God for His speed!
