II PETER 3:8-12A
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 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. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.
It does seem like forever and a day when I am waiting for my dreams to come true. Thank you You explain in Your Word your days are not on my days’ time-line; it helps to know that. Not only should I be living a godly life striving to follow Your plan for my life, more importantly I need to be watchful and ready for Your return so when heaven and earth are no more, I do not perish rather I will gratefully live on in Your eternal presence.
