Devotional: In Need Of Patience
Christian Devotion on Patience
"...For you have need of
steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will
of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to
the full] what is promised..." - Hebrews 10:36 (AMPC)
Patience and endurance seem to go together. We all need to
learn to be patient. There is a right time for everything.
If we're not patient, we will rush on ahead and then the
whole thing will end up a mess. We can't afford to do that.
We may ruin golden opportunities in God if we do. God's
timing is always right on time. We need to wait and be
patient–and this is where endurance comes in. We need
to be able to endure, what seems to us, long periods of
time when we need to be patient, waiting for the right
moment to move on.
We will come into what God has promised, what God has
purposed for us–but in His time. He teaches us lessons
along the way. That's one of the reasons we have times of
waiting along the way. God works in us so we will be ready
to take the next step.
Those times we want to
rush on ahead,
Remember, 'patience' is what we need instead.
