1 Cor 13:4-8
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
Patience is the fruit of the spirit and more so a Christian virtue. Love is defined in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. Love cannot be developed without going through testing (Jam 1:4). Just as our relationship with God involves progressive change, love needs time to be developed. Today in a fast paced world where everything is instant, men are no longer patient and the more impatient they are, the more mistakes they make.
Can we trust God when we are at dead end where we cannot move forward anymore? Who else can solve our problems other than God?
Timing and trust are words that stand alongside each other.
When we allow God to work on our life and accept His timing we can live in hope and enjoy our lives for His word in Jeremiah 29:11 says He has plans for us and His plans far excels our plans and His plans for us is to give us a hope and a future. His word is already established in heaven.
If we can accept His words and timing we have won the day because we give up reasoning (Pro 3:5-6) and live in hope and enjoy our lives while God sorts out our problems behind the scene.
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
With this attitude of trust we can experience total peace and happiness. Till you are ready to let go and let God He cannot intervene in your situation. Its the Lord who directs your steps and bring stability to your lives (Pro 16:9). We are created to depend on Him. He is the One who orders our steps (Pro 20:24).
Do not cast away your confidence which has great reward. Endure and after you have done the will of God you may receive the Promise (Heb 10.35-36). He sometimes leads us in ways we don’t understand. We don’t need to understand because all we need is to entrust our lives to Him for He loves us unconditionally and will make our paths smooth. Trust Him completely.
