“Let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be…wanting nothing” (James 1:4).
Just because it hasn’t happened yet-
– doesn’t mean God has changed His mind.
While you are waiting…
God is working!
The timing may not be right for Him-
– to get the ultimate glory,
– and you the maximum benefit.
That’s why the Bible says: “Let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect…wanting nothing.”
Impatience is a sign of immaturity.
Children can’t wait for anything!
So, are you being childish or showing maturity?
God sets His watch to accomplish His purpose, not ours.
Paul writes: “We know that all things work…according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).
When you understand God’s purpose you won’t permit things that are contrary to it, including hurry and worry.
You’ll also know how to allocate your time, your energy and your money-
– who you should spend your life with and who you should not.
God says, “I make known the end from the beginning.” Isaiah 46:10.
First God sets the goal.
Then He determines the steps that lead to it.
And what are we supposed to do while we are waiting?
“Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.
For you have need of endurance,
– so that after you have done the will of God,
– you may receive the promise” (Hebrews 10:36).
Begin thanking God today for what He’s done.
And what He’s going to do on your behalf!
He absolutely will come through for you!
