All about my love for the Lord

Be patient…

on May 31, 2012

“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.  The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”2Peter3:8-9

The Lord’s patience is abundant beyond comprehension.  As a mother I yearn to have just a fraction of God’s patience…as a wife, too! I once heard that praying for patience was a really big prayer.  Others feel that praying for patience just increases your odds of being under spiritual attack.  I disagree.  Prayer and the mere mention of Jesus makes the enemy flee.  The one of the world longs to capture us and take us from the hands of God, but prayer will always prevail.

So, I pray for patience in the Spirit of Christ.  I don’t rely on my own ability to be patient; if I rely on myself I fail miserably and become a tyrant who wants everything done RIGHT NOW!! I rely on Christ to fill me.  Prayer is powerful. Patience is a gift from God.

Thank you God for giving me the gift of prayer.  Thank you that I may ask in Your mighty name for patience and peace.  Thank you for being patient with me and reminding me that everything in Your timing and will is just and right.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
