Scripture:
“The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” ~2 Peter 3:9

Observation:
This verse takes the common complaint that God seems slow to fulfill His promise and flips it on its head by reminding us that He is also “slow” to condemn us. Thank God!

Application:
There are things that I wish God would just go ahead and get on with. This verse is reminder that God works in His own time, often for our benefit and the benefit of others who need to repent, even when we don’t see it.

Prayer:
Father, thank You that, in Your “slowness”, You chose not to condemn me for my sin. Help me to remain patient while You fulfill Your promises in Your time. Help me to work diligently in the meantime so that I might have a part in the repentance of others for whom you are also withholding Your judgment, and thank You for my own repentance (daily!) and redemption.
