Patience and Perfection

Patience is not easy for most of us. For example, if a plane is delayed for a few minutes or maybe something did not happen exactly when or how we expected it to happen, we get impatient and frustrated about that situation.

I have also heard people quit going to a particular church just because the Pastor did not finish his sermon on time. There are lots of examples to this kind of situation. But, James 5:7-9 says, “Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!”

Patience is an attitude of expectation. In the spiritual realm, God the Father knows the final product of what is happening to you and He wants us to link patience to our faith in His Son Jesus Christ. When you wait on God, that means you trust God. Ask God for the gift of patience and then use it. Amen.

Listen to James 1:3: “The testing of your faith produces patience.”
