Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
Most of us have a distorted idea about patience. We think of it as something designed to help us suffer failure gracefully, but according to these scriptures, it will actually put us on the path to success!
Trouble will not produce Faith. If trouble produces Faith, then we all would be Faith giants because almost everybody is in some trouble. When you get into trouble, use patience. Patience is what keeps your Faith in the field long enough for the manifestation to come.
Know that the trying of your Faith works patience, so every time trouble comes make sure that you hire patience. Trouble will not produce patience – YOU HAVE TO USE PATIENCE. Patience is what keeps your Faith in the field long enough for the manifestation to come.
As Christian people whilst we are waiting for the Promises of God, when you go through a problem, employ patience & still stand on the WORD, ie when troubles come your way, stand on the WORD in patience – it’s not the trouble that makes you better, but it’s what you are doing throughout the trouble.
You see, Faith Opens the door to God’s Promise for you, and patience keeps it open until that promise is fulfilled. Patience (or being consistently constant) is the power twin of faith. They work together to see to it that the promises of God are fulfilled in your life.
Say, for example, you need a job. You can go to the Word and see clearly that God promises to provide your needs. You can see He takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servants. Once you see that, faith takes hold and you shout, “Hallelujah, I’ve got the job I need.
But what happens to that Faith tomorrow morning when you go to three interviews and get turned down all three times? Then what? That’s when patience has to take over! That’s when you have to make a decision to stay constant, to act as if nothing’s changed.
So, if you’ll put patience to work, you know what you’re going to say after those three unsuccessful job interviews? You’re going to say, “Hallelujah, I’ve got the job I need!” just like you did before.
Whenever God Promises you that He will Bless you, have patience & wait for Him because His time is the best. Don’t rush & take a shortcut, No! ‘…Wait for it…it shall surely come… He will not fail. God is never too late or too fast so we need to wait for Him to execute His plan/s for u; PATIENCE. Avoid impatience, it’s a fruit of pride – let’s learn to trust God because His is Right, no person, devil, or demon can stop God from Giving you what He Wants to Give you – YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FEEL PATIENCE FOR YOU TO BE PATIENT.
The truth is, if you based your confidence on the Word of God, nothing has changed. It says exactly the same thing it said yesterday. Be in Faith & let The Love of God Transform the way you think; stay focused & never give up & see The Goodness of God. Above all, have & use Patience with your Faith so that you do not quit until you receive your breakthrough.
The Bible says that through Faith and patience, you will inherit His Promises! However, most people give up just before they get their miracle. They stop when things get hard or when they do not get the answer they want the first time – just submit your prayers to the Lord and keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Know that God is working behind the scenes. He is perfecting whatever concerns you.
By the Power of the Holy Ghost Working within you, you can be the same every day no matter what happens. If you will put your trust in the Word of God, and let patience go to work; it won’t matter what happens. You won’t ever have to accept anything less than victory again.
Do you have your Faith sights set on a promise of God today, a promise you’ve been waiting on for some time? Don’t let the delay discourage you. Put patience to work. The Word guarantees you will receive your reward.
