Kathie Lee Gifford Talks God’s Timing with Rabbi Jason Sobel: ‘Always Worth It’

By Movieguide® Contributor

In a recent episode of Kathie Lee Gifford’s GOD OF THE HOW AND WHEN video series, she sat down with Rabbi Jason Sobel, who shared his thoughts on God’s timing. 

“God’s timing often trips us up because his timing is not our timing,” Sobel explained. “But the good news is that those who wait upon the Lord are never left wanting. If we wait for the Lord, we’ll never be left wanting, and that’s the promise we have in Isaiah.”

He then cited Isaiah 40:31: “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Sobel concluded, “It’s not easy. Waiting is not easy, but it’s always worth it.”

Gifford posted the video to Instagram, writing, “I hope that [the video will] provide you with a sense of peace and serve as a reminder to trust in God’s timing.”


Movieguide® previously reported on Gifford’s work with Sobel:

Actress and singer Kathie Lee Gifford has never been shy about her faith in Christ. However, the four-time Emmy Award-winner revealed that her latest set of projects felt like a direct call from God and a unique culmination of her life’s work.

The former TODAY host and TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL star recently sat down with Movieguide®’s Evy Baehr Carroll to discuss her new musical production, THE WAY, and book, “The God of the Way: A Journey into the Stories, People, and Faith That Changed the World Forever,” which she co-wrote with Rabbi Jason Sobel.

THE WAY is a worshipful presentation of the love of Christ and the transforming power of God’s word through the eyes of Hagar, Ruth, David, and Mary Magdalene.

Gifford’s narration throughout the movie is accompanied by the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and talented artists like Nicole C. Mullen, Danny Gokey, Jimmie Allen, Larry Gatlin, BeBe Winans, and more.
