I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry-Ps40:1
Patience is one of the vital attribute that is missing in our society today, most people has made a costly mistake in their life because they lack patience. Some of the youths in our society today lack patience; they don’t want to work, all they wanted is to make money swiftly without much labour.
In other to make this money as quick as possible, they engaged in illegal means. What they fail to understand is that wealth gather by vanity diminish with time, but he that gather through labour will increase. Impatient has made people lose their blessings, marry the wrong partner, engage in illegal business, join cults, die early etc.
Joseph in Gen.39 waited patiently for his glorious destiny to be fulfilled, he has to go through refining process; from being free man to a slave, from a slave to be a prisoner. Just like Gold in his raw state it is unacceptable, despise and unattractive but after the refining process it becomes an envy of the world. Many of you are going through refining process right now, don’t give up on God because the bible said in Isa40:31 “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.” There is a greater reward of waiting, imagine if Joseph had slept with potifers wife, he would have been the head of slaves instead of prime minister of Egypt.
In Romans 12:11-12
11. Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12. Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
The Bible encourage us to be patient in tribulation; when you are passing through trials and temptation; you are passing through a process. To scale through the process you need to continue instant in prayer. A prayerful Christian is a powerful Christian.
Don’t allow the devil to be showing tip of the eyes beg of what God has for you and sin against God. God has a better plan for you. Wait for it because the vision is for an appointed time, when the time comes it will surely come to pass.
If you want surrender your life to Christ or you want to rededicate your life to Christ, kindly say this words;
Lord Jesus, I come to you as a sinner. Forgive me my sin, come into my life, come and be the Lord of my life, thank you Jesus for saving. Amen
If you just say that, welcome to the Lords family.
I trust the Lord has spoken to you do share with your friends. God bless you.
