“The Lord is not slow about His promises as some count slowness.” 2 Peter 3:9
This verse stopped me this morning because I know I have not always been the most patient person when it comes to God’s timing toward my requests, and I doubt I’m alone in this problem! It’s hard to wait sometimes and especially when I am going through tough times. My culture and my selfishness usually win out and I expect God to “produce” at the same rate I expect my computer to respond—in nanoseconds!
“If my people, who are called by my name…” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Here’s a deal from God, personalized from my verse for today:
“Humble myself”- acknowledging that God is more important in my life than I am
“Pray”- talking to Him “as to a friend” as Ellen says
“Seek His face”- making choices that make it easier to see Him
“And turn from my wicked ways”- making choices that will not hinder me from seeing Him clearly
