In spite of these disappointments God returns with renewed generosity time and time again to look for results. This is the patience of God (2 Peter 3:9) towards souls. He does not become discourage by our lack of correspondence. He knows how to wait. He sees our faults and failings but He also sees our capacity for doing good. The Lord never gives up on any soul. He trusts through thick and thin.
Isaiah 42:3 …a bruised reed He will not break and a dimly burning wick He will not quench.
