2 Peter 3:9
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” (NKJV)
“The Lord isn’t really being slow about His promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.” (NLT)
God gives us incredible chances to come to Him in repentance. He sets up opportunities for us to solely rely on Him and His awesome power.
There are times in my life where everything seems worthless, hopeless. Then when He finally steps in to reveal Himself to us He says, “You couldn’t do it on your own, it was me the whole time! Lean NOT on your own understanding, lean on Me!” There are circumstances that I look back on and realize that it was impossible for it to be anyone other than Christ! He works out everything to the tea- and turns our sufferings and pain into an opportunity for Himself to be glorified.
It is HIS TIMING. RELY ON HIM, and be patient. He knows what He is doing. And it is far greater than we could ever do on our own.
