When I pray, I want immediate answers.
Just make it so, I wail. Do it now!
But Jesus isn’t bound by time.
Revelation 22:13 (NIV)
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the First and the Last,
the Beginning and the End.
I am focused on what seems best at this moment in time. Jesus is focused on what is best for all eternity. What I see as urgent looks very different to him. That thought gives me pause. What do I really want? The quick fix, or the eternal good?
