2 Peter 3:9 New International Version (NIV)

9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.


Often we hear some variation of the phrase “wait on the Lord” It might sound like “just wait on him or you just have to wait on God”

I want us to take a closer look at the scripture above. Although there are times when the scriptures encourages us to wait on God for certain things, you HAVE to know who’s doing the waiting.

If you are waiting on the promises of God then it is not you who is waiting, its God. He is patient with us as we try to figure things out on our own often getting impatient and frustrated on the timing. We have mistakenly assumed that our breakthrough hasn’t come because God hasn’t done his part.

The scripture says God is not slow…the opposite of slow is QUICK! The God I know is a suddenly God ready and willing to come to our aid and/or defense.

So who’s REALLY waiting on WHO?

Look at the scripture again, looks like repentance will bring about the very thing you are waiting for. (That is of course if you aren’t already perfect in your own eyes, then I guess you will continue to wait)
