Dear God, Give Me Patience Right Now!Jun 11th, 2009 | layout by ccdgte | Category: Interesting Stuff
Waiting can be a bore and being patient certainly seems to be a very passive thing to do…But in the midst of nothing happening, there is always something happening. Subtle change is something we often do not catch on to right away…But always in the stillness, underneath the surface, there is something happening.
In these times when answers don’t seem to be forthcoming from God, the Holy Spirit is actively working…maybe we need inner spiritual growth or it is something else that we just need to be patiently waiting for. It will happen and God will give us His answers…for some things we may have to wait a short time, for other things the wait is much longer… sometimes God’s answer may even be a no… whatever it is we are waiting for we should not be in too much of a hurry. Most often than not we need to wait patiently. Do you need patience right now?
The Bible says that we are to wait upon the Lord, but the prayer we usually mutter goes more like, “Lord, give me patience—right now!”
How do you wait? When nothing seems to be happening, make your waiting time active… Pray and talk to God.
“Lord, please grant me the patience I lack…and can you give it to me now, please?” (Just kidding…)
Psalm 130:5Psalm 130:5
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV
5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
WP-Bible plugin (New International Version)
- I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in His word I put my hope.
So while you are waiting and being patient…take a look at this music video about waiting. This video is from the movie Fireproof.
Smile and have a blessed day!
