I NEED MORE PATIENCE . . . I WANT IT RIGHT NOW!

DO YOU RELY ON AN INSTANT ENERGY DRINK? HOW ABOUT INSTANT COFFEE, OR INSTANT MASHED POTATOES? THERE IS EVEN AN INSTANT CALMING DRINK. DO YOU WANT INSTANT SUCCESS, INSTANT RICHES OR INSTANT HAPPINESS?

SCRIPTURE TELLS US OF ABRAHAM AND SARAH WAITING UNTIL THEY WERE ALMOST 100 YEARS OLD FOR A SON. MOSES LED HIS PEOPLE FOR 40 YEARS IN GOD’S TIMING TO ENTER THE PROMISED LAND. EVEN IN THEIR IMPATIENCE, THEY WERE MORE PATIENT THAN MOST OF US.

GOD’S BEST IS WORTH WAITING FOR. WHEN JESUS CAME AND FULFILLED ANCIENT PROPHESY, MOST REJECTED HIM. GOD SENT THE KING OF KINGS, BUT THEY WANTED A HUMANLY KING TO RULE FOR A FEW DECADES. GOD HAD SENT THE KING OF ETERNITY. TWO THOUSAND YEARS LATER AND OUR SOCIETY IS STILL ABOUT HOW QUICK WE CAN HAVE OUR INSTANT DESIRES.

WE WAIT FOR JESUS TO RETURN….HE IS WORTH THE WAIT. WE NEED TO LIVE OUR LIVES IN PATIENCE AND HARMONY; DESERVING OF HIS LOVE.

EMPOWER YOURSELF WITH THE PATIENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND TREASURE THE WAIT. ETERNITY IS YOUR REWARD.

THE LORD IS NOT SLOW IN KEEPING HIS PROMISE, AS SOME UNDERSTAND SLOWNESS. INSTEAD HE IS PATIENT WITH YOU, NOT WANTING ANYONE TO PERISH, BUT EVERYONE TO COME TO REPENTANCE. 2 PETER 3:9 NIV
