Patience

Comments : 4 Posted in : Words of Wisdom on by : FLL Tags: , , , , , , ,

Today I was thinking about how much things change yet stay the same from generation to generation. I wonder how the people felt when they kept hearing John the Baptist say that Jesus was coming? I mean can you imagine, Sunday after Sunday hearing the same message that Jesus is coming? I wonder if they felt like I feel when I hear the preacher man say, “It’s your time, or It’s your year”? I know this has to be true at some point in my life, but when and how much longer is it going to be? Even though John the Baptist preached that Jesus was coming for a long period of time, he did eventually come. David was anointed king as a child and was chased down by Saul for most of his youth and young adult life, but eventually he did become king. Joseph dreamed about having dominion and power as a youth and endured GREAT trials and tribulations before it actually came to pass, but it did come to pass. So I say this to you as well as to myself as a source of encouragement, bills past due, debt out of control, job loss, stressed out….small potatoes. Maintaining your patience, faith, and beliefs is the greatest battle that you will have to fight! The battle between what your mind perceives versus what your spirit has been promised, regardless of what you see. As the years went by and there wasn’t any evidence of Jesus, John the Baptist didn’t decide to just stop preaching it, and the people didn’t decide to stop believing it was going to happen. As David was being chased down by Saul, he never gave up on the promise of one day being king. When Joseph was thrown in the pit, in jail, and falsely accused, he always knew in the back of his mind that no matter what happened or how it looked, GOD told him that he would have dominion and rule and reign. So no matter what it looks like, or what is going on or wrong, never give up on the promises of GOD! Holding on to your patience, faith, and believing and knowing that it is so… is truly the greatest battle you will ever fight.
