Patiently Waiting - 2 Peter 3:9

2 Peter 3:9 - "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."

Do you ever feel like you are waiting on God? Waiting to hear about a job or promotion. Waiting on cures or diagnoses. Waiting on births or deaths. Waiting on something to change.

In honest, we are all waiting. Just as God's people were waiting on the Messiah when Jesus was born in Bethlehem. We are waiting for Him to return once again to banish sin completely and make the world anew.

It is true that we wait on God, for He has perfect timing, but God is also waiting on us. He waits for people to deny sin and reach out for Him. He waits for people to accept his love and receive His forgiveness. We may be waiting for Christ to return once again, but God is waiting for us to repent so He can have a relationship with His children.

Sometimes it seems to us that God is slow in moving; however, it is His great patience in waiting on us. He is waiting until the perfect moment to act.
