The Point of Patience
I am the least patient person that I know. I don’t like to wait for anything. In an age of microwaves, fast-food, drive-up windows, instant internet and cell phones our patience levels are diminishing!
Mary and I are in search of a house. This has required a lot of patience. We have been looking for about a year. We have lost out on house. We have walked away from houses. To be honest, there have been many times we have become frustrated and impatient.
What does patience reveal? It reveals our trust in God. Proverbs 3:5, 6 tells us to “trust in God” and to not “depend on our own understanding.” We don’t see the whole picture of God’s plan … he does. We must trust him! He has the best plans for our lives (Jer. 29:11).
