2 Peter 3:8
” 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. And especially when I am anxious about something 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.
With that being the case then you and I should not complain because we really have not waited a thousand years, see this is how I see it. When a person is hungry, and they must wait fifteen minutes it can seem like an hour to them when they are hungry.
There are people who waited in the bible, Moses waited for forty 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 with us? God knows that we are not ready to receive it yet. So, in the meantime He prepare us. So, when we do receive it, we will be mature for it.
God’s timing is much better so in your waiting have patience. God is not slacking
