A Daily Devotion for Friday, September 2
2 Peter 3:9
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.
The concept of time is an interesting one when I look in scripture. There are the beautiful verses in Ecclesiastics which talk about time here on earth, and how there is a season and a time for all things, but not all things at once. In this passage from 2 Peter, I am reminded that God’s timing is not the time of minutes, days, weeks I am used to thinking about. I need to be patient, and wait on God, because he is the one with the plan.
Holy Father, May I live each day to the fullest, glorifying you, and shining your light. I am thankful for all of the time you give me. Help me to be patient and to keep things in perspective. Amen
