2 Nephi 11:7 He Cometh in the Fulness of His Own Time


7 For if there be no Christ there be no God; and if there be no God we are not, for there could have been no creation. But there is a God, and he is Christ, and he cometh in the fulness of his own time.
I don’t know what the phrase “in the fulness of his own time” means, but one possible meaning is this: He comes when He, who knows all things, decides that the time is right. 
Sometimes our will is aligned with the will of God (we have “reconciled ourselves” to His will), but our timing is not aligned with His timing.  We may have righteous and correct desires, but we may want them to be fulfilled now instead of being willing to wait. As Neal A. Maxwell said, “When we are unduly impatient we are suggesting that we know what is best—better than does God. Or, at least, we are asserting that our timetable is better than His. Either way we are questioning the omniscience of God.” (“Patience,” BYU Speeches, 27 Nov 1979)
Today, I will choose to submit not only to God’s will, but also to His perfect timing.
