One Reply to “Episode 14: Impatient God”
Hi Drew -I happened to bump into this podcast when looking again for the phrase impatient God – I found it while reading Bible lately and it cougth me because of the surprise element of it – that in the situation God could not stand the plight of his people any longer. However, you had a wider context and very insightful teaching about this. I will meditate on the idea of prayer changing us to “allow” God to be manifested at different level – the verse made me actually take steps I would not have taken otherwise, so I suppose some changes are taking place!
