2 Peter 3:8 says” But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
I love this verse because so many times it reminds me to be patient when I am anxious about something and waiting for it to take place this verse comes to mind. In our minds if we wait more than a day we think we have suffered long enough when clearly scripture says what a day is to the Lord.
And with that being the case then you and I should not complain because we really haven’t waited a thousand years, see this is how I see it, when a hungry person is ready to eat to them 15 minutes can seem like an hour, and so when I have to wait the Lord is saying “Desi, my child you haven’t been waiting long at all.
I think we all should keep that in mind so when your patience run thin and you can’t wait for something just go and read this verse again and it surely does put it into perspective, for us don’t it?
There are a lot of people who waited in the bible, Moses waited for 40 years, Abraham waited for many years before God blessed him and Sarah with a child. Could it be that in our waiting God is perfecting something in us, He is maturing us and removing some things in us which He does not approve of?
The list can go on and on but one thing for sure if we are trusting God we have to wait on Him and it’s in His timing not ours, so what are you going to do while you wait?
