We’ve all heard the sayings “in due time,” “trust the process,” and “God may not come when you want him, but he is always on time.” They are meant to help you learn to be patient and trust the universe to deliver what you need at the right time in your life.

It’s easy to feel like you’ve missed the boat when things don’t happen in the time frame that you believe they should. That is the period when you need to trust in divine timing the most.


If you pay attention, the universe will let you know when you are on the right or wrong path.

What is divine timing?

Divine timing is the concept of a spiritual force greater than yourself guiding your movement through life. The idea is to trust in the divine to give you everything you desire in perfect timing.

Divine timing works in many ways. It can put you in the right place at the right time, or it can cause your life to unfold differently than you imagined. The universe is all-encompassing and all-knowing and gives you what your soul needs when it needs it, despite what you had planned.

Some believe that everything happens for a reason, while others believe events are influenced solely by the decisions we make on a daily basis and random occurrences that could not have been predicted.

Signs of Divine Timing

You may have had many signs of divine timing, but never realized that is what you were experiencing. That is partially due to the fact that the nature of divine timing gives the perception of coincidence, irony, or spontaneity.

  • Déjà vu: If you’ve ever had the feeling that you have been somewhere before, experienced the exact same thing, or had the same interaction with a person in the past, you have had déjà vu. Spiritual people believe this is because your high self has watched your life unfold, witnessing the moment beforehand.
  • Synchronicity: Sometimes, a person randomly crosses your mind and voila! — they are calling your phone, texting you, or stopping by to see you. This is synchronicity and is actually divine timing placing you and them on each other’s minds simultaneously. The universe has sent them back into your life.
  • Angel Numbers: Another sign of divine timing is the appearance of Angel Numbers in your life. These repeating numbers might appear on clocks, in phone numbers, or on license plates, but they are a sign of divine guidance from the universe. Quadruple-digit Angel Numbers are a particularly strong sign that divine timing is at play.
  • Symbols: Like spotting Angel Numbers, seeing symbols like circles, animals, and other spiritual things can be a signal of divine timing. Each carries specific meaning and hints at the message the universe wants you to receive.
  • Intuition: Sometimes, you just know that things are happening just as they should. That intense gut feeling is speaking to you and letting you know that time is of the essence and working to your advantage.
  • Dreams: There are many ways to dream such as lucid dreaming, mutual dreaming, and clairvoyant dreaming, where what you see in your sleep comes to fruition in real life. You are keyed into the universe and following its divine instructions.

How To Trust Divine Timing

Now that you know what divine timing is, you should look at ways of trusting and embracing it. If you are able to simply believe that the universe has your best interests at heart, it can relieve a lot of stress and anxiety.

1. Be patient.

Patience is a virtue and it is difficult to come by at times. You don’t want to force things forward. Instead, know that everything is going as planned and will materialize when it should.

2. Do the work.

Some of the anxiousness that results from feeling like you are out of time is due to the laser focus on the end result. If you put your energy into doing the work required to achieve what you want, your goals will naturally unfold before your eyes.

3. Let it go.

One of the best ways to trust divine timing is to set your intention and let it go. There is no need to plan every minute detail of how you will arrive at the destination. Just set your internal GPS and allow the road you travel to get you there.


4. Follow the signs.

Speaking of internal GPS, you will see signs along the highway to your ambitions. They will come in some of the ways listed above, like Angel Numbers and synchronicities, or even your own intuition. Make sure you analyze and follow the signs instead of ignoring them.

5. Be mindful and manifest.

Being mindful means quitting your racing mind and connecting with the universe on a spiritual level. It allows you to be in the present and listen to your soul’s desires. Meditation and affirmations can be great tools for this.

6. Become self-aware.

Self-awareness is an attribute that is necessary in every aspect of life. You have to know who you truly are to determine what you need to do to be your optimal self. Get in touch with your body via yoga, alone time, or exercise.

7. Keep growing.

By being self-aware, you can easily recognize our strengths and weaknesses. This allows you to learn and grow from mistakes of the past and gives you power in the areas you struggle. Learning is a never-ending process that should always be happening in your life on some level.


8. Be grateful.

An attitude of gratitude can work wonders when it comes to getting what you want out of life. People spend so much time hustling and achieving that they rarely stop and smell the roses.

So, show gratitude for what you have been blessed with thus far and the universe will be inclined to deliver more for you to be thankful for.
