God Is Patiently At Work

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

The above verse speaks of patience of God.  It is Peter's response to the "whys" of life.  We wonder why God allows certain things to happen.  This verse gives the answer.  It might not be the answer we want but it is the correct answer.  God's goal is on track.  There is nothing that is circumventing God's purposes.  He has promised to work all things our for our good and His glory and He will keep that promise.  This verse also teaches us that God is at work.  He is not in Heaven doing nothing.  He is in Heaven working all things out.  Let us rest in His love and know that when the time is right God will act.
