THE PRACTICE OF PATIENCE!

James 5:7a – Devotional

James 5:7a

“Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord.”

It seems like we are living in such an instant age, that the mere mention of patience flies in the face of our way of life. We have instant coffee, tea, pudding, mashed potatoes, instant everything! So many things in our modern world are designed to save time, effort and energy, yet they have failed! In the face of all of the short-cuts and labor saving devices it seems as if we have less time for the important things in life than ever before.

The answer lies in the Word of God. In all of our efforts, we have totally failed to develop the proper discipline of patience. We do not desire to wait, or slow down for anything. We are so busy making things happen, that we leave no room for that “quiet time” of waiting to see what God is going to bring across our path.

We need to practice the discipline of patience. Practicing the discipline of patience will allow us to relax and look forward to the delays in life. It also gives God a chance to reveal Himself to us and show us a better way to live.

As we spend more quality time with God, life becomes more ordered and the stress level is greatly reduced. Patience is relaxing in the Lord and letting Him direct our paths! Try it!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
