Why the Delay?

With all the chaos in the world, I am encouraged that God will bring justice, and restore order in the world. God does have an eternal plan which is revealed in the book of Revelation.

The challenge we have with God stopping injustice and bringing order is we live in a microwave, and same day drone delivery generation.  We get everything right now, and we feel that God should right all the wrongs in the world right now.

God whose ways and thoughts are far beyond ours (Isaiah 55:8-9), said that He is delaying punishing evil, and bringing order because He is giving more people the opportunity to get right with Him.

 "The Lord isn't really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent (II Peter 3:9-10).   NLT

Christian's we take a lot of criticism for God's patience and delay.  Be encouraged and lovingly share the gospel with non Christians so they will repent and enjoy an eternal relationship with God.  

God does have a plan and God has a purpose for His delay.

God Bless,

Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.
