Max Lucado – God is Patient With Us

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

God is more patient with us than we are with ourselves.  We assume if we fall, we aren’t born again.  If we have the old desires, we must not be a new creation.  If you’re anxious please remember what Paul said in Philippians 1:6, “God began doing a good work in you, and I am sure he will continue it until it is finished when Jesus Christ comes again.”

In many ways your new birth is like your first.  In your new birth God provides what you need; someone else feels the pain, and someone else does the work. And just as parents are patient with their newborn, so God is patient with you.  But there’s one difference.  The first time you had no choice about being born. This time you do.  The power is God’s.  The effort is God’s.  The pain is God’s.  But the choice is yours.
