96. Inexhaustible patience!

Not only does God forgive wickedness, rebellion and sin (Exodus 34:6) but he is long forgiving, patiently putting up with it for a long time, untill the time is up! In other words, God is long suffering! God is patient in dealing with us because 'he is slow to anger.'(Psalm 103:8) And even if he does, 'he will not harbour his anger forever'. ( Vs9) But he is not easily angered by anything and everything he sees. That is why Scripture says, 'he will not always accuse', but overlooks our offence. Why else would Scripture uphold this virtue, if God himself doesn't exhibit it? 'A man's wisdom gives him patience, it is to his glory to overlook an offense.' (Proverbs 19:11) God's patience with mankind has not been exhausted completely and that is why the world hasn't ended yet! Just because everything is going as usual, the world thinks the second coming of Christ is a hoax! 'They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." ... But do not forget this one thing ... The Lord is not slow in keeping his promises, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance.' (2 Peter 3:4-9) God might be slow to anger but not slow in keeping his promises! Amen.
