Faith and Patience

PatinceAs I’m writing this, it’s snowing again. We know Spring is around the corner and yet the physical facts seem to point otherwise. Like other things in life, we read what the Bible says and yet the “physical facts” seem contrary. Those promises are as real and powerful as they were when they were first given. Believe them. Trust in God’s Word! Have patience and you will see them come to pass. Slide into unbelief, get impatient, and start complaining and they’ll be delayed or canceled. I once heard a man say that the wealthiest place in any community is the graveyard because of all the unfulfilled dreams, opportunities that were lost in life through unbelief, discontent and disobedience.

The promises of God are more true than the reality that Spring will soon be here. Let’s not forfeit the grace that awaits us!

Jonah 2:8 (NIV) – “Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs.”
