Morning Prayer, Friday, January 24, 2020 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: MORE PATIENCE PLEASE
Father God, there are times in my life when I want to be more patient and have prayed and asked for it not knowing it sometimes comes with a test. Give me the strength in those times to past the patience test. Amen
“Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.” Ecclesiastes 7:8
“For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.” Hebrews 10:36
"Patience is a key element of success.” Have you ever prayed and asked God for more patience? I have and can honestly say that I was not prepared for the test that came around the corner. We don’t often think about the things we ask God to give us more of, right? For instance, if you want Him to enlarge your territory, in most cases, it is not just going to happen overnight. Joseph had a dream that one day his father and brothers would bow down to him. Now he may have thought just like that, I am going to be thrust into a position where my family will have to bow to me but that wasn’t God’s plan at all. Joseph was first thrown into a ditch, then sold into slavery, then lied on by his boss’s wife, and for that thrown into prison. Ok God, so not funny. How do I go from dreaming that I am going to be on a bigger stage someday where my family will bow to me to getting thrown into a ditch, sold into slavery, lied on and then thrown into prison? Don’t understand that rationale but Joseph passed his test. We don’t always understand how asking God for what seems like a simple blessing can take us through hell. The Israelites just wanted to be free of enslavement in Egypt. Who knew they would have to go through so much but then again, most of that was their own fault so yes, sometimes, God has a simpler plan, but because of our weak faith or disobedience we wander around for far too long. My prayer in this year is this, that I will have the strength to pass whatever tests God places before me. May not be easy, but I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
