THE MORE PATIENCE WE HAVE, THE MORE BLESSED WE ARE

But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. – James 1:4

We are to put an end to the lordship of our carnal nature. We cannot continue handling stress as the world does, by being impatient, getting mad when things are not as we want them to be and allow our carnal nature to take control. We cannot have two lords at the same time. If Jesus is Lord, we have to follow His direction and that means that we stop following our carnal nature’s impulses.

Whenever we do not follow the directions of the Holy Spirit and we fall into sin, we empower the enemy to hurt us. The choice is ours and the quicker we learn to do things God’s way and let the Holy Spirit to take control over our fallen carnal nature, the more we grow into becoming mature and fully developed children of God.

It is not our power that enables us to endure, to stand vertical and be patient while everything falls apart around us. It is the Holy Spirit working in us that does it, when we ask for His help and follow His directions.

SUGGESTED PRAYER

Dear Father, please help me endure, persevere and have patience during hard times and while waiting for Your answer to my prayers. I know that the more I trust You, the more patience and strength I will have to keep the right attitude. By doing so, I can even rejoice in my spirit, while my flesh would despair. Dear Lord please help me grow into becoming the perfect person that You created me to be, lacking nothing. Thank You and praise You for ever and ever, dear Lord. Amen
