2 Peter 3:6-9

By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. 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 promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

One response to “2 Peter 3:6-9

  1. God’s time is not ours, and we can’t understand the weight and the complexity of His plans. But we can understand His mercy because we live by it and underneath it everyday. He is not looking for us to fail, He wants us to repent and to walk in His way so that we can have the joy and the peace that His plans for us hold.
