Do You Lose Patience With God?

Then people will say,
    “Surely the righteous still are rewarded;
    surely there is a God who judges the earth.”

Psalm 58:11

New International Version (NIV)

        Human time is a lot different than God time    After all God has spanned an eternity before this nanosecond that is our lives even came to be.   We think in years that in some ways seem like a long span until we start nearing the end.  Then the years fly until this life is over.

         There is a future eternity awaiting us.  A glorious eternity with Jesus Christ.  Our Lord wants all of us to be there with Him in that eternity.   He waits for you, not like the impatient wait we might experience at the DMV or the doctor's office, but the patient waiting of a loving Father who wants to see us come to Him.  Come to Him in eternal life.

          Are you ready to enter His Kingdom?

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9

New International Version (NIV)

  1. Thanks Arlee. Thanks for inspiring me to re-read that chapter and for the reminder to live in such a way as to be ready to enter His kingdom at any time.

  2. So beautiful and full of Agape love, Arlee! Thanks for sharing these uplifting thoughts.

  3. God and I have been having issues with 'patience' lately. Sometimes it's hard to see His patience, His "big picture", when we are mired in time. Hard to remember that nanosecond is just that.

  4. I am prepared to spend eternity with him :) I don't lose patience with him, I sometimes wonder why he allows this and that, but I know, like you mentioned, that he sees it all and he sees the complete end where we just see a part.
