But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were in dread of the children of Israel.
1 Kings 11:9
So the Lord became angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned from the Lord God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice,
Thank You Lord that You are always at work in us.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some count slowness. But He is patient with us, because He does not want any to perish, but all to come to repentance.
The man came to the second and said the same thing; and he answered, ‘I will, sir’; but he did not go.
Lord, thank You for Your sacrifice. Help us to let go of our old ways & to learn Your ways.
God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son. Anyone who believes in Him will not die but will have eternal life.
Heavenly Father, grant us patience.
2 Timothy 2:25
You must gently teach those who don’t agree with you. Maybe God will let them change their hearts so that they can accept the truth.
He has been very kind and patient, waiting for you to change, but you think nothing of His kindness. Perhaps you do not understand that God is kind to you so you will change your hearts and lives.
