God, Give Me Some Space!

April 14, 2024


The patience of God is a beckoning hand, an open door, a pathway home. The patience of God came to Jonah in the belly of a fish, calling him to get back on board with God’s plan to redeem the Ninevites. The patience of God came to Matthew at the tax booth with Jesus calling him to turn from corrupt living and to “seek the Lord while he may be found” (Isaiah 55:6). The patience of God came to David when David’s wandering eye fell on Bathsheba, and God called David to own his misdeeds and obey God once again. Whoever and wherever we are, God gives us space to stand up and be ourselves, to repent and receive forgiveness, to choose life and partner with God.
