God is not slow, He’s patient.
2 Peter 3:9 reads “The Lord is not slow at keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you”
I find myself often screaming “I want it now!!!” I see myself sometimes like one of those children, stamping their feet and waving their fist, demanding at that unbearable pitch, “I want this now, give it to me!” We all know how we feel when we see parents dealing with a demanding child, we feel for them but we expect them as a parent to hold their ground and not give in. They know what’s best, right?
It pains me to say it but God knows best, even when I want what I want but I’m not getting it. He sees the end from my beginning. He is patient with me, even when tears are rolling down my face, He wipes them away, whispers “Not now” and holds me until I rest in the peace of His presence. He loves me beyond how I feel right now because He has prepared a sure future. This is the love that God has for all His children, including me.
