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 think that the Lord is slow?
Perhaps you think that He is causing things to unfold too fast.
Are you aware of God’s timeline? Do you know what He has planned since the beginning of time? Do you find yourself oblivious to what is going on in the world? Do you think that what is happening is simply a matter of circumstances?
God is continually unfolding His timeline. Are you so engrossed in your own personal timeline that you fail to see what God is laying out before you? Do you see beyond your own daily routine?
We must remember that we are part of what God created. That simply means that we are in His world. We did not create Him. We live by His timeline, even when we ignore it.
Even when we ignore it!
How often do we ignore God?
Ignoring God will not stop what He has planned. Ignoring God will not save you from death. It will not save you from judgment. Only the redeeming grace bought by the blood of Jesus can save you from judgment. It is humanity that is slow in accepting this grace for ourselves.
Don’t be slow in accepting Jesus!
