2 Peter 3:10 “The day of the Lord will come like a thief.”
We live in an exciting time. I believe the Lord is coming soon. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are to live in a state of readiness.
For two thousand years, people have been living in this constant state of preparedness, watching and waiting. It sounds like a long time, but it’s not. Remember, He gave His first promise to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. It was thousands of years later, but God kept His promise and sent His son Jesus to redeem mankind.
When we complain and ask God what’s taking so long, we need to remember that God’s timing is perfect.
2 Peter 3:8 “…A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years like a day.” 2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some people think. No, He is being patient for your sake not wishing any to perish.”
