II Peter 3:8-9 (MSG) Don’t overlook the obvious here, friends. With God, one day is as good as a thousand years, a thousand years as a day. God isn’t late with his promise as some measure lateness. He is restraining himself on account of you, holding back the End because he doesn’t want anyone lost. He’s giving everyone space and time to change.
If you are like most people, you seek the admiration of your neighbors, your coworkers, and your family members. But the desire to please others should never outweigh your desire to please God. And your desire to impress others should never cause you to compromise your beliefs or to defy your God conscience. In other words, are you walking your talk of love, grace, peace, mercy and joy?
Ask yourself if your behavior has been radically changed by your transformational relationship with God. If the answer to this question is unclear to you-or if the honest answer is a resounding no-think of a single step you can take, a positive change in your life, which will bring you closer to our Lord.
Point to ponder- Continue to pursue your relationship with the Lord. Especially if you feel you have failed yourself and God. And if you are feeling like what’s the use, God still has need of you today!
