Sometimes we think of God as we think of ourselves. Big mistake. That kind of thinking leads us to dead end.
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. Jesus calls on us to radically change our way of thinking and act differently. It is known as repentance.
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.
Jesus is clearly the WAY to God. There is no other way to know God and enjoy a life that never ends.
But God doesn’t lose his temper. He’s powerful, but it’s a patient power. Still, no one gets by with anything. ~Nahum
