He that shall come will come, and will not tarry

Daily Light Devotions - October 5 - Evening

He that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

For, "Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay; 1 

And the LORD answered me: "Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end-- it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. 2 

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 3 

But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. 4 

We have become like those over whom you have never ruled, like those who are not called by your name. Oh that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains might quake at your presence-- From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides you, who acts for those who wait for him. 5
