Romans 10:21 But as for Israel He says, “ALL THE DAY LONG I HAVE STRETCHED OUT MY HANDS TO A DISOBEDIENT AND OBSTINATE PEOPLE.” (NASB – sent from CadreBible) God’s patience is beyond comprehension. As someone who has lost faith with others at times or expressed my frustration even when another person may be trying diligently but still not succeeding, I am impressed with God’s patience even to a person or a people who are disobedient or obstinate towards His authority & commands.
As other passages in the Bible point out I was in that group & sometimes still choose to return to that designation. I have and continue to experience the patience of God.

I’m listening to Casting Crown‘s “Voice of Truth” this Easter morning and decided to publish a post I’ve been mulling over awhile now.
My life is for God’s glory. Whether I fail or not, it’s for God’s glory. Whether I choose to show the courage and stupidity to stand before things that look like giants or even if I man up and actually stand before more powerful beings, the outcome is not my own. The battles that matter to me, to others and to God are His to fight. I’m a bumbling idiot who would choose things that would kill me and waste my time and focus but God whispers peace to me and reminds me of what David said; the battle is the Lord’s (I Samuel 17:46-47). God is longsuffering, He is glorious and majestic and it only seems like failure to me because I don’t have the lifespan, experience and vision to see His plan.
