Patience
by   
11/10/2008 / Devotionals


Waiting is always difficult and so often we feel it’s wasted time. Patience can be difficult to find in many situations.

Some ‘waiting’ pet hates.

* Waiting in a doctor’s surgeries, especially when the doctor is getting close to being an hour late.

* Being stuck in traffic.

* Standing in a queue at the supermarket.

* Waiting for that important phone call or email.

And my favourite:

* Being kept ‘on hold’ on a phone call so you can speak to the right person/department after pressing numbers in reply to mechanical voices. *sigh*

Maybe you can add more of your own pet hates that take all the patience you can muster up.

We struggle at times to wait patiently on the Lord’s timing. Sometimes we are aware that our waiting could hold a human factor, which can be both aggravating and disappointing; especially when the person involved speaks of God’s timing.

Someone told me once that ‘wait’ is God’s middle name. Is God always the instigator of waiting? Or does he use these waiting times for His glory and purpose? It’s is something to think about. Answers to these questions can cause further frustration in the waiting game, but God can use all these kinds of waiting to build patience for His Glory.

Galatians 6:9
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Romans 5:3-5
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Christ teaches us patience through His Word. Experience also teaches patience. We can't always see God working in the times of waiting but if we take a look back after the event, we'll see that He was there all the time.
