God is slow to anger

If God were not slow to anger

Sometimes slow is good.  Praise God that He is slow to anger.

Joining in Five Minute Friday this week.   One word prompt,  write for five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Slow.

If God were not slow to anger:

  • I may have not had the chance to trust Him as My Savior
  • I would already be in my grave
  • Many in the Bible would have been wiped out. For instance:
    • Lot
    • The Israelites in Egypt
    • Ninevah
    • Saul/Paul
    • And the list could go on
  • We would not know His mercies that are new every morning
  • We may not see family and friends come to know Jesus who we have prayed for
  • We would not learn ourselves how important it is be slow to get angry and not let the sun go down upon our wrath

One Day

One day, however, God will no longer be slow to wrath for this world will end, judgment will come, and those who don’t know Christ will face His wrath.

So don’t be slow to know Him for it may be too late.

Psalm 145:8 The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

Praise the Lord He is patient with us!

I am so thankful that God is slow to anger. His mercies are new every morning. Your words are such an important to trust in Him today. I am stopping by from Five Minute Friday.
