TOPIC: FAITH AND PATIENCE
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of
things not Seen. Hebrews 11:1
Read: Hebrews 11:1-11
The more we trust a person, the more patient we become them towards them. If they promise to come as soon as possible, we will wait for them even more patiently because we know they mean what they say. Open Heaven January 2021
Romans 10:17 says faith comes by hearing the word of God.
Thus if we would be steadfast in faith, we must constantly fellowship with God’s word so that we know Him for who He is.
Faith without patience produces people who start off well but cannot finish strong. Patience without faith produces people who constantly suffer but have no power to change their situation. when Satan whispers to you that God’s word is not working faith says “It is a lie” and strengthens your resolve to wait. Faith has no fear; it knows that God’s word has never failed, so it builds patience in you to wait for the word to come to pass. Faith strengthens patience. James 1:3 says:
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith
Faith and patience, working together, defend and protect your soul. This is why sometimes, God tries your faith so as to build your patience. He knows that just like Job, if both your faith and patience are strong, no matter what the devil brings your way, you will not fall. You need both faith and patience to win the heavenly race, because it is a marathon and not just a sprint. I got born again over forty-five years ago and it was as if Jesus was coming that same year. Some of those who started the race with me
Have backslidden now. They had faith, but not patience when I started seeing some of these people backsliding I was worried for my own faith, thus I cried to God help me so that I would finish strong. One day, watching the making of a movie in which the lead actor told the director that he was not sure he would Win the horse race that was to be a part of the movie. The director responded “You just keep riding “I will make Sure you win”. God spoke to me through that: He finish said you just remain in the race, I will make sure you finish strong”. Jude 1:24 says He is the only One who can keep you to the end. I believe God and His word, and that is why today, l am still standing.
