God is present in the ebb and flow of #faith. He is not quick to abandon the righteous. He corrals us with his love and channels our steps toward #perfection. He works for our holiness. #God is patient in this process.
Evil exists in the world, and God is not responsible for letting evil do its worst. His plan is larger than to immediately stop to some evil deed.
“We seem to be in such a hurry to get people to make a decision, sign on the dotted line, admit certain things. But God takes a longer view. He’s willing to wait years, sometimes an entire lifetime, to bring us to a place where we will finally yield to His love for us.” —Darren Wilson
“Many people want to say what is worthy of God and what is not worthy of God; however, the only true way to find out what is worthy of God is to see what God has or has not done in the Bible. Whatever God has done is worthy of him.” —Jim Sheerer, NT Commentary, 983.
“After God had so bountifully offered proof of His goodness, our first parents behaved as though the Devil intended only good and God intended only ill.”
—Franz Delitzsch, co-author of OT commentary with C.F. Keil.
If God’s love is the principal thing, then let his love be the framework through which we see all things and though which we speak and act.
The good that God is is the best that man can have.
