The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
(2 Peter 3:9 (NIV))
Do you ever find yourself thinking that the Lord is slow?
Has He not answered your prayers when you thought that He should?
Has He not found you a spouse when you thought that He should?
Has He not found you a new job when you thought that He should?
Has He not returned for His church when you thought that He should?
Have you ever stopped to think that it is not God who is the problem? Could it be that it is your lack of patience that is the problem?
Just because God does not operate on your time schedule does not mean that He is slow! We are impatient! God is patient.
Think about God’s promises. Has He ever left one unfulfilled? We know that He will keep the rest, we just need to get on God’s time schedule and not ours.
Are you on God’s schedule?
