The world is at a fast pace. Everything is in a hurry! The normal now is, fast forward.
The microwave is working more than the stove. We have made every lane on the freeway, the fast lane. We can’t wait on hold on the phone no longer than 20 seconds, without being frustrated.
No one wants to be patient for anything. We want everything, now. But, we have to slow down, and know that patience is a behavior we all should have more of.
There’s a cycle and a process for everything, with learned lessons in them all. God is trying to show us ourselves, and Him. But to see what God is doing in and through our lives, we have to be patient. God doesn’t rush things because the world is changing. He doesn’t move according to our will, but His will, so that we can receive His promises.
Learn to slow down, see the process, and receive the promises.
Hebrews 10:36 (KJV) – for ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
Psalm 27:24 (KJV) – wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
