We got on to chatting about how God speaks to us at house group the other day. Very interesting as usual.
One of the things that came up made me think a bit. Seeing as that's so unusual (me thinking that is!) I thought I'd share it.
When we get prophetic words these days, we have a really "here and now" attitude to it. It's usually assumed to be 'for someone in the room' or at least relevant to a current situation. And generally, they get a bit dropped or forgotten if it doesn't apply to anyone/anything. And yet the Bible is full of prophecies and stuff that waited hundreds of years to be fulfilled.
I get that its different cos loads of those prophecies were about Jesus and so kinda fall into a different category and all that. But I'm also not sure I believe that since then, God only talks about the here and now.
Why are we so impatient?
