Need Patience – Seek It

blue wreath pray

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
Matthew 7:7-11

“For everyone who asks receives,
and the one who seeks finds,
and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”
– Jesus
Matthew 7:8

  • Jesus promises you that if you seek, you will find. I ask you today – do not only ask God for patience (if you need it of course) but also seek after it. You need to think action not reaction! Allow the Spirit to work within you, and then take action and follow the lead!
  • Think of a recent event where you didn’t remain patient. Confess it, and ask God to reveal what could you have done differently? Write about it

Patiently Waiting

pink pennant pray

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
James 5:7-12

“You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.”
James 5:8 ESV

  • How long are you called to be patient?
  • You are not only called to be patient for the Lord’s coming, but you must also take action in your own life. What is this action?
  • This should be a daily activity! What does Matthew 24:42 tell us about Jesus’ coming?
  • What does v. 9 tell us is one way to prepare your heart?
  • I’ve been known to grumble – how about you? Remember God hears it all! Not only that, but the person you just grumbled about was created in God’s own image (Genesis 1:27). Something to think about!
  • Who does this passage reveal as examples of  patience?
  • Ultimately the lives of these prophets reveal which of Lord’s characteristics?

Those apply to you, too!!!! Remain patient and steadfast – God is merciful & compassionate!

Just Do It

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
Read James 1:19-25

pink wreath write

As much as God desires us to study His word and grow to know him, he longs for so much more.

Do not merely listen to the word,
and so deceive yourselves.
Do what it says.
James 1:22 (NIV1984)

  • In verses 19-21 we are given instruction regarding the righteous life God desires. What are the characteristics James instructs us to know?
  • We are instructed to be doers not just hearers! Paraphrase verses 22-25.
  • What do you need to do today to honor God and follow His word in your life?
