I have to remind myself over and over again, that My God is not confined by time, as I am. Scripture has many examples of people who felt trapped in their situations, and were crying out to God to come and rescue them quickly. I love, love, love how God’s heart is so yearning for the salvation of His people, all people who will come to Him. 2 Peter 3:9
Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth;
This is our God, this is His heart. I am broken by the realization that some do not want God. I truly believe that if they knew Him as He defines Himself, they would want to have Him as their Lord and Savior too. We must be so diligent in our own lives to display God’s character. One of the ways I find that I lack displaying God’s character is patience. I forget that perhaps things are taking longer than I think they should, because there are people that God is trying to reach, who can only be reached by my waiting longer for God to work where I am right now. I forget that God is outside of time, that people are always God’s number one priority, not my desires or convenience. My God is living outside of time, and so must I learn to live. I must come to a place where people are more important to me than what is going on right now, more important that what I want, when I want it.
Lord, as this picture displays, You hold time in Your hands. You hold people in Your hands of love. You demonstrated Your love for us, in that while we were still sinners, You came as Jesus Christ to die for us. O precious, compassionate and Holy Lord, forgive me for my impatience, and for my selfishly wanting my own ways sometimes. Lord God, who lives outside of time, help me to learn to live even as You do, and to consider others as more important than anything else I may desire. Lord teach me to love each person around me, as You love them, each and every Day. In Jesus Holy name. Amen
