The prayer I struggle most to pray, is the one for more . This is because, developing patience comes through trials and the learned skill of seeing other people the way God sees them. Practising patience teaches to keep looking toward things above, where we witness God working in the most difficult of circumstances or within the most difficult of people. 

The says, welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every they do or say something you don’t agree with—even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their history to deal with. Treat them gently (Romans 14:1 MSG). 

Today consider these three things in developing Patience: 

Patience comes with a cost. Patience requires that you God’s timetable, setting aside your quick-fix agenda, your rights and demands, not in a sense of co-dependent weakness, but with the sacrificial strength of the Jesus-life within you, where you sync with the deep, mysterious, ancient love of the Creator. 

Patience comes with practice. Most people can muster patience when it’s convenient; the real test comes with the stress of time slipping away, or when someone keeps making the mistakes repeatedly. 

Patience comes through God’s love. Patience may cost you all the love you have, but that’s okay! God has more love in his love bank than our minds could ever conceive. So, give all the love you have, and God give you more and more and more as you keep giving every ounce of love away. Can’t do it? Of course, you can’t but God can. Hallelujah! 

Allow God’s love and his patience to flow through you. 

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” 4:2 (NIV) 

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, teach me to be patient – with life, with people, and with myself. I sometimes try to hurry things along too much and push for answers before the time is right. Father, touch me and fill me with your light and your . God, give me strength when I am weak, love when I feel forsaken, courage when I am afraid, wisdom when I feel foolish, when I am alone, hope when I feel rejected, and peace when I am in turmoil. In Christ’s name, Amen.
