Sometimes the only thing you can do in certain circumstances is wait or (aka) be patient, but waiting is often extremely uncomfortable. If that’s you today, I got some good news for you!
When you look at biblical scriptures there are several reminders that encourages to be patient. Make note, God doesn’t operate in time (seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years), rather He functions in His appointed time (aka) seasons.
With that being said, whenever your battling with impatience you have to dive into the scripture.
In the ever popular Psalm 46:10, David reminds us when we are at wits end to, “Be still and know that God is God” and Solomon endorses this truth in Ecclesiastes 7:8, “The end of something is better than its beginning. Patience is better than pride.”
In Galatians 5:22-23 we learn the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!”
Patience is the 3rd of 9 fruits (or forbearance) and it means to possess the ability to endure difficult circumstances. Patience will also involve perseverance in the face of delay (waiting or tarrying); tolerance of provocation without responding in disrespect/anger; or forbearance when under strain; or duress especially when faced with longer-term difficulties.
I hope that helped! Now, before I close this short devotional, I invite you to re-read paragraph 2 and remember that God operates outside of time and even more important than that, God is faithful, God will never lie, and God will never fail! The God on the mountain is the same God in the valley and if God brought you to it; He will at the appointed time (season) see you through it!! Everything will always fall into it’s proper place!
