Patience

God is patient with us despite all our weaknesses.
Patience is a rare virtue and not easy.
Learning to wait on God is a lesson I had to take.
It is not enough to pray for a miracle but waiting for it to pull through makes it just about enough.I have also learnt patience from my Sunday school kids. I have a lot of kids all with different personalities.

You’ve got to have a lot of patience and love to be with them.

We learn patience through pain, difficulties, sickness, disappointment, failures etc in every area of our lives.
The bible says:
Romans 5:3-5  And not only so, but we
glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;  And
patience, experience; and experience, hope:  And hope maketh not ashamed;
because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
When we go through challenges we learn patience and through these challenges we gain experience that teaches us there is hope in every situation. And That God will show up and we won’t be left ashamed.
In our expectation from God, we wait with patience because we know that our expectation will not be cut off (Proverbs 23:18). Keep your eyes on Jesus and he has promised never to leave nor forsake you.
 
Romans 8:25  But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
 
We cannot receive
God’s promise upon our lives without patience.
We must not lose hope. Faithful
is he that has called us.
 
Hebrews 10:36  For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
In temptations and trails we need all the patience we can get, so that our faith can be perfected. When circumstances come to try our faith in God, we should remember they are there to make us stronger and perfect.
 
James 1:2-4  My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;   Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
 
The very little things in our daily life teach us patience. The queue at the grocery store or bank, the traffic lights, cleaning up after our kids and other daily activities serve a learning process.
We also need to teach our kids to be patient even with others.
This is what God expects from us too.

10 Good Reasons You Should Wait
On The Lord.

Isaiah 40:31  But they that wait upon
the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
 
1. You renew your strength.
God refreshes, replenishes and refills you.
 
2. You gain speed and momentum (when it is time to run).
You recover time and excel. You won’t get worn out.
 
3. You will not faint (when it is time to walk). Weakness is not in your vocabulary because God has strengthened you. Isaiah 37:9  
 
4. You will inherit the earth. Psalm 62:5 
5. Your expectation is from the Lord.
 
Lamentation 3:25-26  The LORD is good unto
them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man
should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
 
6. The Lord will be good to you. Habakkuk 2:3  
 
7. The promise of God must surely come to pass in your life.
Isaiah 30:18  
 
8. You will be blessed. Isaiah 25:9  
  God will save you. And you will rejoice in his Salvation.
                                                                                        
Prayer: Dear Lord, I may not be the very best in waiting. Please help me to be more patient in my expectations in
Jesus name.
