Sometimes we think of God as we think of ourselves. Big mistake.
God is God but His emotions aren’t like ours are. He is more powerful than we can imagine. God can do anything He wants to. His power, however, is a VERY patient power.
If we think because God is patient, we can “get away with things”, we better think again. God’s patience is shown to us so we will change our minds about missing His goal for our lives and so that we will accept Jesus as the answer.
But God doesn’t lose his temper. He’s powerful, but it’s a patient power. Still, no one gets by with anything. ~~Nahum 1:3
