Have you ever wondered how to possess the promises of God? Well l have, l must confess to wanting to rush the process.. In between trying to upgrade my studies, working and just life in general, l was beginning to get frustrated with the process to the promise. The when’s and why’s had become my best friends 😂.

With God there are no shortcuts l realised.. The only way out is through it ..

Patience as l have now come to understand is the behaviour in waiting not just the ability to wait.. COLOSSIANS‬ ‭3:12‬ ‭AMP‬‬👇🏾

“So, as God’s own chosen people, who are holy [set apart, sanctified for His purpose] and well-beloved [by God Himself],

put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience [which has the power to endure whatever injustice or unpleasantness comes, with good temper];” COLOSSIANS‬ ‭3:12‬ ‭AMP‬‬

In order to receive the promises of God in our lives we constantly need to work on our endurance , our ability to not complain and grumble .. Even just to continue doing the will of God, we need to become better at enduring seasons with a good temper.

Only then can we receive All that God has promised us.. Hebrews 10:36☝🏽

Well l pray this will help you in your walk with God. That God may encourage you and strengthen you as you read this..

Much love 💖

Shalom

  1. Reblogged this on The Christian's Report and commented:
    How timely is this post? Very! The Lord has taken me through two separate “patience” trails during the past month. One had to do with repair work on my boat (this one required patience and money) and the other was waiting for a critical grade to be posted on my son’s most recently completed college semester (and God had enough of a sense of humor to put the semester’s last chapel message right below the area that the grade would show up in – message title was “Wait”.

    But these two were only preparatory and led up to my current test involving a much more serious matter. Suffice to say that it involves the spiritual condition of one of my sons. God has assured me that it will end well, but there is no guarantee on just how long it will take.

    So thank you for this timely post!
