2 Peter 3:8-9
“But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. 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.”
It may seem things are going to hell in a hand basket, but we shouldn’t focus on the chaos and lose track of the work we should be doing in Jesus name. We’ve been in this pandemic for over a year. I’ve had my own battles as well that have lasted over 2 years. No one is saying… yes I love this pandemic… yes I love going through my issues… we are ready to be over things and through things like… NUFF ALREADY!
We ask ourselves how much longer will this pandemic or our individual situations go on? To us time is dragging on and seems like forever, but the word tells us that to the Lord a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day. Pointless to say… but I’ma say it anyway… HIS TIME IS NOT OUR TIME! He is not only giving us time to get it right, repent, and come to Him, but time to complete the work He has called us to do.
Let us stop looking at how long things are taking, but look at what we can be doing with the time we are being given!
