I think the most important thing that all Christians must learn is this, THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, AND YOU ARE NOT HIM!
We live in a fast food society, the I have to have it right now, the my way or the highway generation. It’s sad that this reflects the way many of us want God to work in our lives. I myself have said, Lord I need you to do this right now or This is what I would do! Notice the pattern, the problem here is me, I’m not God. I don’t know the future, I’m not all knowing, all powerful, the beginning and the end, no I’m just a man. But, I am His child, the one He loves. He know our needs and his timing is perfect. We must learn to wait.
WAIT: to remain or rest in expectation
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
1. Happiness because you have hope
2. Wait on God, no matter the circumstances
3. Use your greatest weapon
PATIENT: enduring trying circumstances
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy. Colossians 1:1
1. All power is the filling and the leading of the Holy Ghost.
2. His glorious might is his love for you and I.
What are the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.
Love is patient and kind, love does not envy or boast, it is not arrogant.
1 Corinthians 13:4
With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love.
