Patience is a Virtue – A Gift from God!

Patience is a virtue they say…..
The bible tells us that patience is one of God’s own attributes. When we seek the Lord and choose to trust in Him and live by His word, we are promised Fruits of the Spirit.
You can find a list in Galatians 5:22
“But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control”
Regardless of your feelings or circumstances, what you are lacking if you are not experiencing God, is God himself. A relationship with your maker. The one and only living God. When you draw near to Him, He will draw near to you. When you seek Him!
Janes 4:8. “Come close to God [with a contrite heart] and He will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; and purify your [unfaithful] hearts.”
When you acknowledge who God is, the creator of everything (including everyone that has ever lived or breathed), you realize that you belong to him. And he loves you, as He created you and knows you better than you know yourself.
When you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord and Savior and that He already suffered on that cross for the sins of the world, was resurrected and ascended into heaven to return again to receive you unto himself (Romans 10:9), It is then that He will help you through by giving you increased understanding and wisdom of the scriptures, UNLEASHING THE POWER of His Holy Spirit. It’s like turning up the heat. He changes our hearts as we understand more about our creator.
“In the same way the Spirit also comes to help us, weak as we are”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:26‬ ‭
The answer to life’s frustrations and sufferings which result in impatience, anger, and bitterness is not for God to just answer our prayers and fix all that and fix everyone else that are the source of all our problems, it starts with Us and OUR relationship with God.
So what can we do?
Draw near to him, seek him with a heart that is turned away from selfishness and stubbornness to do only what you want, in your way, and in your timing. YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO LIFE ON YOUR OWN! GOD DID NOT CREATE YOU TO BE OUT OF RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.
Get into Gods Word (The Bible) and ask Him to join you there to show you who He is and how much He loves you!
And if you want to learn more about God’s incomparable help in our suffering, listen to this sermon.
