God is Patient With Me
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
Do you ever feel like a disappointment to God?
Every feel like of all His children, you are weakest and most undeserving? Ever feel like you will just never reach that level of maturity in the Lord you desire?
I have good news and really good news for you. First, at one time or another, we all feel that way. We all want our walk with God to move from one glorious moment to the next, but unfortunately, it’s often two steps forward and one step back.
The really good news is that God understands your weakness.
He knows your weakness and frailty. Psalm 103:14 says that He knows you are made from nothing but dust.
Because He knows who you are and how you are made, He is patient with you. Even the great Apostle Paul struggled with his own weakness. In Romans 7 he confesses that he often did what he did not want to do and didn’t do what he knew he should do.
God is patient and understands you are often weak and frail. God patiently worked for 40 years in the back side of the desert to bring Moses to the place of faith He wanted him to be. He is doing the same for you.
Like a loving Father, He gently guides you in the way you should go. When you get off the path, He calls you back to Himself and patiently trains you to walk in the path He has for you.
Look at that promise once again.
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. – 2 Peter 3:9
Make this declaration with me.
God is never slow in fulfilling His promises.
God is patient with me and knows my frailty.
He is working to make me more like Jesus.
He patiently draws me back to Him when I stray.
In Jesus Name,
