January 28: Space and Time

GOD’S REMINDER: “I am restraining Myself on account of you, holding back the End because I don’t want anyone lost. I’m giving everyone space and time to change” (2 Peter 3:9).


NOTE TO SELF: Ever wonder why God hasn’t just ended it all here and now? It’s a good thing I’m not God, because I don’t have patience for the ugliness and ruthlessness of this world. But God does. And He is holding off on ending it all right now because He is holding out on hope for His children. He is giving everyone space and time to choose Him above all else.

What an amazingly thoughtful God we have, that He patiently waits for us and gives us time to change, time to seek Him, AND space. He’s not invading our space or forcing Himself on anyone. He’s just there…waiting.
