Patience is a form of Action!

I would love to give credit, but I have no idea of the author. It sure gives a great word picture of what can happen when we rebel and determine to do things our own way no matter what God says. Sometimes I think it takes Him much longer to answer our prayers because we have messed things up trying to make something happen ourselves. Then He has to undo our damage before He can make things right.

All the while, then, we find ourselves thinking about how slow God is. If we could just see things from His perspective, we would find that we can trust Him with every detail and know that He will work everything out for the best.

I came across an anonymous quote the other day that I put in a place where I can see it every day to help me remember its point:

PATIENCE IS ALSO A FORM OF ACTION

God loves His Children with a love that we can’t even imagine. Trust Him to supply your needs and work on your behalf.

What happens sometimes when we try to do it ourselves!

Is this the way you pray for patience?

Lord give me patience Now!

God looks at things totally different than we do as humans. Patience is something you must acquire if you are to follow God with your whole heart.

The flesh always wants to find a way to take care of things with the knowledge it already has. The problem is that no human has the capacity to see the “big” picture of where God desires to lead us and the blessings He has in store.

He definitely has a different time-table. We think we are ready to solve our problem with the facts we have at hand, and God calls for us to wait until every circumstance is in perfect order so that He can give us His Best.

He wants you to learn that you can totally trust Him to lead you in the right direction. You will have to endure some trials or pruning along the way, but the end result will be worth the wait. God will mold you into a much stronger person that He can use to carry forth His work.

The next time you are tempted to get ahead of God, DON’T. Make the choice to walk WITH Him, and you will see that He does things in a wonderful, unique way. When He has fully revealed His plan, it will be far greater than anything your flesh ever imagined.

When you receive God’s Best, you will always be glad that you had the patience to wait for it.

Hebrews 12: 1 “…let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”
