God Isn’t in a Hurry: Learning to Slow Down and Live


Baker 1994

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Why doesn’t God work more quickly? Can he have a purpose for making me slow down?

Here is encouragement for those times when you are impatient with your Christian walk.

In our instant society where we eat microwaveable meals and see serious problems resolved in less than half an hour on TV sitcoms, we resist waiting on the Lord. Yet God uses trials to test our patience and cultivate fruit in our lives.

Warren Wiersbe exhorts you to relax in God and enjoy the journey through life walking with him. Sometimes he leads down smooth, tranquil paths, but at other times he takes us on bumpy roads where we can’t see what lies ahead. This warm, insightful book gives practical instruction for sharpening your discernment, developing a powerful prayer life, being involved in a church on the move, and standing firm in the furnaces of life.

Periods of suffering, affliction, and dryness, are inevitable. God Isn’t in a Hurry encourages you to persevere through these times, believing that your loving heavenly Father will use them to conform you to Christ.

In the Logos edition, God Isn’t in a Hurry: Learning to Slow Down and Live is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
