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!

Patiently Working for God

blue circle pray

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
2 Timothy 2:22-26

“And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil,  correcting his opponents with gentleness.”
2 Timothy 2:24,25 ESV

blue circle write

  • As a worker for God what are you called to flee?
  • What are the characteristics you are directed to pursue?
  • Here Timothy differentiates between situations to avoid and useful events in the lives of the unbeliever. What does Timothy instruct you to avoid?
  • List the qualities Timothy shares that you should nurture as a servant of the Lord?
  • Timothy then concludes with the purpose of your gentle and patient behavior. Share how God can use you.
  • Think of the example you give. Are your quarrelsome? Do you get involved in little spats that mean nothing just to prove your point?  Do you share the truth with gentleness? Ask God to reveal to you which trait in you needs some Holy Spirit work.  Begin to pray each day about the growth of that characteristic in your life.
