We often find ourselves waiting for something – waiting for a job offer, waiting for healing, waiting for a loved one to come to know Jesus. It’s easy to get discouraged and lose hope when things don’t happen as quickly as we want them to. But the Bible encourages us to be patient and trust in the Lord’s timing.

James 5:7, reminds us of the patience of farmers as they wait for their crops to grow.

Just as the farmer trusts in the process and patiently waits for the rains to come, we too must trust in God’s timing and have patience as we wait for His plans to unfold in our lives.

We may not see the results of our efforts right away, but we can have faith that God is working behind the scenes.

As we wait, it’s important to remember that our faith is not in our own abilities or timelines, but in God’s sovereignty.

He sees the bigger picture and knows what is best for us. So let us trust in Him and be patient, knowing that His timing is always perfect.

Remember, patience is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). As we seek to cultivate this fruit in our lives, we can draw on the strength and guidance of the Holy Spirit to help us persevere through difficult seasons of waiting.

So let’s be patient, knowing that the Lord is with us and that His plans for our lives are good.

Learn Compassion

In our endeavor to reach people for Jesus, we must become people of compassion. For some of us this does not come easy. God will grant compassion to those who earnestly seek it!

When we watch people constantly struggle and fall, sometimes we get into the “just get over it” mindset. That is NOT compassion! It is actually judgment. What we are really saying is; “I am frustrated, and not able to know how to help you, I got over it, so should you.”

These kinds of statements place shame on the individual you are speaking to. They will begin to avoid you at all costs!

Gently and compassionately lead them to Jesus; He is the ONLY one who can truly set them free!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.   John 3:16
