I long to be with the Lord. Yet, whilst thinking about this, I know that I also long for Him to be patient enough to save those who are coming to Him. None of us know how long this will take. More than likely, far longer ahead than the years left to me.
But I pray longingly for His return. I cannot help it. Knowing that I am actually asking Him to begin His final judgement, as that’s what’ll happen. Whenever we pray like that, we’re asking for this, (from verses 5-10).
In all of my longing for all to be put right, I take comfort from this.
Jesus is very patient or longsuffering. I know all will be all right. Can’t help aching for His return, though!
