WHO I AM IN CHRIST!
I am one who has patience
But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering...
LOVE suffers long and is PATIENT! whew - sure not a HUMAN thing! I need patience and I need it right NOW, LORD! :-) The patience of the Lord is our salvation - imagine if he had a short fuse with us wrote us off after the first few attempts at drawing us to HIMSELF!!!! YIKES! Let's allow this fruit of the spirit to live in us as well as the others especially in regards to one another and those who we want to see SAVED!
God is not in a hurry - while we live in an INSTANT push button world - tapping our fingers and toes while the microwave oven cooks in moments what used to take hours! No wonder we have trouble understanding that we might need to wait a bit for those answers to our prayers! God has not forgotten ONE prayer we have prayed - WE may have forgotten! If the enemy is whispering lies to you that God does not answer your prayers tell him he's a LIAR and determine to WAIT on our awesome God - when the answer comes it will have been worth the wait!
SPREAD HE WORD!
