In relation to time, God has to have more patience than we could ever fathom when it comes to our obedience. He provides us with all we need as we continue to fall short of his perfection, yet he unconditionally shows us grace and faithful love that endures forever. Oh, how his patience must be tested by the second, but we will never know how long and hard God works on each and every one of us.
1. How long is forever?
2. Think of one of the most frustrating moments of your life. Now ponder the idea of living in that situation forever. Is this even close to the level of frustration and patience God exudes towards us?
Challenge: The next time you are in a situation that is causing you so much frustration all you can think about is running away from the moment, pray for God-like patience to get you through the moment. Pray for Him to help you show a faithful love that will endure forever.
