Hasting that Day

2 Peter 3:12 KJV
Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

This passage reminds me to Titus 2:13
Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of that great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.

I am caught up with the phrase hasting unto. It is not that we can hurry the day of Christ's coming.  John Gill says,
"as that day cannot be longer neither can it be sooner."

God's plan is as immutable as He.

But JFB writes,
"... God appoints us as instruments of accomplishing those events which must be first before the day of God can come. By praying for His coming, furthering the preaching of the Gospel for a witness to all nations, and bringing in those whom "the long-suffering of God" waits to save, we hasten the coming of the day of God."

May we be ever faithful in those appointments of God for our lives.
