9 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
The ultimate sign of God’s patience is Him wanting salvation for more people. But we make choices. It’s the way it’s always been.
How many times have you come across someone who really made a bad choice? You wonder what their thinking process was behind the choice. Sometimes you just can’t understand it.
Fortunately, God is patient with us. He’s patient with the vilest of sinners. There’s literally no end to His patience.
From our finite position we see but a few details. God has the big picture in mind. We can’t comprehend what that means because there are 7 billion people on the planet. He knows them all intimately.
Thank the Lord today for His infinite patience. Thank Him that He never gave up on you. Thank Him also for being patient with your loved ones. Maybe today, maybe tomorrow they will come to repentance. Keep praying.
