Reading Verse: Numbers 3:1-51
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness
One fruit of the Spirit is patience, so in life we should produce the fruit of patience. As humans, sometimes it is hard for us to be patient because we have weaknesses, but at least we should try to learn to be patient. Remember that we can’t achieve anything instantly. Patience is not easy, so ask for strength from God so that He enables us to be patient.
In order to be patient, we have to pass a process of life which makes people don’t feel like going through it. But keep in mind that through the process our patience will be exercised automatically. Behind every process there is always a good and beautiful plan of God.
Sometimes when we want to be patient, we meet annoying people in life so that our patience can be exercised. It doesn’t seem good and we tend to avoid it, but in fact this is one way for us to be patient. So, never repay evil with evil. On the other hand, we should be patient and keep our good attitude. When our prayers haven’t been answered, there are times when we must wait but it should not make us give up because this is a way to create patience in us. Like Abraham who waited patiently for the born of his son Isaac, he prayed, waited for a long time before God answered His prayer and received the fulfillment of God’s promise.
Sometimes we also experience failures. But in down times, never blame anyone, and we must get back up and be patient. Successful people are those who can be patient. So in life, no matter what we go through we should have patience, because with patience everything will be alright and we can eventually enjoy God’s plans. Amen.
Have patience in all aspects of our lives
