BEAUTY OF PATIENCE


When I talk to people one of the things which they have the less of is patience. Patience requires waiting and waiting always seems to be one of the hardest things to do; especially in a fast pace society of instant everything and remote control. Patience is actually one of the fruit of the Spirit and when applied to our lives through the Spirit it overcomes stress which is not good for our health.


Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalms 27:14)


When we wait with patience it implies our trust of the Lord. One of patience’s virtues is the ability to enhance and develop the nine aspects of the Fruit of the Spirit. It is easier to be gentle and kind when one is superimposed with the strength of patience. Patience is a virtue which enhances our health, strengthens our relationships, and tempers our resolve.


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. (Isaiah 40:31)


Brethren; life is seeded with battles which are spiritual, emotional, and even physical at times. When we learn the power of patience and exercise that power in our lives; life will not overcome us; we will overcome life’s battles and the devil’s bashing. Jesus told us that in our patience we possess our souls; hence we take control over those emotions and attributes of the flesh that hinder our lives. Everyone hates the process of becoming more patient; but everyone loves the benefits. Selah
