DAY 7: PATIENCE IN FAITH

Today’s writer who I’ve known for a number of years, is admired for his dedication and diligence to all he does. He is a great blessing to the present and coming generation. In this article, he shares with us how Patience relates to our Faith. Read and be blessed.

*************************************************************
On a starting note, I like to sound this to your hearing “There is no firm faith outside patience”. Are you surprised? it’s a sincere truth. Isaiah 28:16b(GNV) says Faith that is firm is also patient“. This in other words tells us that patience is the meter that measures the firmness of our faith. Oops! Please this is too complex for me, can you break it down? Okay, this is what I mean….Patience helps us to know how strong our faith is.

In the same vein, I want you to know that it’s not how big your faith is but how firm your faith is that determines the quality of the result. Remember the Bible says “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, move from here to there”. (Matthew 17:20)
Take this too “The firmness of your faith is not determined by how soon you see a desired result but how long you can wait for the desired result to come.” Heb 6:15(GNV) tells us that “Abraham was patient and so he received what God had promised.” And don’t forget that this same Abraham was regarded as the Father of Faith, and we must likewise believe like Abraham did to acquire God’s blessings.
There are a lot on my mind seeking expression but let me conclude this way, “But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience” – Rom 8:25 (GNV). This tells us that if we must partake of the blessings of Abraham, then we must be patient in faith. Has God promised you something? Then you have to be patient because God is not slack concerning His promises. He alone understands the best time and season for the manifestation of those promises.
Let me leave you with this “How soon you see your expectations come true does not show how firm your faith is, rather it’s how long you can wait for your expectations to come true that shows how firm your faith is.” So WORK your FAITH in PATIENCE.
