THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…

TEXT: Hebrews 10:37
THEME: BE PATIENT WITH GOD
MEMORIZE: “Say ye to them that are of a fearful heart, be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come and save you.” (Isaiah 35:4
The undoing of many people even in the church is impatience. When they are yet to get their wants, they resort to any means necessary to get it. As children of God, we know it is unbelief to do anything outside the will of God. Our father in heaven is the all-knowing being.
He knows the intent of the mind. Some may come to church expecting God to give them their desires and the moment it is granted, you will not find them anymore in the church. Like the prodigal son, they turn their backs on God who answered their prayers. Impatience is very disastrous. God our father loves us so much that sometimes He can delay a specific expected miracle, for He knows the end from the beginning because your soul is invaluable to Him. For that, He can delay it, while working on you. He knows you and knows your qualities and knows if that miracle is released, you will abandon the church and everything righteousness.
Patience is a fruit of the spirit, which every believer is expected to possess. But many are void of this fruit. I don’t know the long awaited miracle you are expecting. Your expectation shall not be cut short. Don’t be discouraged. He that will come will come and not tarry, He is working on you and making a way so that when He’s done, the miracle will manifest, for you will acknowledge it is from the Lord and not by power. Some may have been long expecting the breakthrough in finance, marriage, child bearing, educational pursuit or career development. Whatever your long awaited expectations, as a child of the kingdom your Father knows you have need of them and at the appointed time, it will be delivered.
All that is required is that you continue in righteousness. No situation should make you lose hope in God. Many before us faced similar challenges and yet remained faithful to God and got their respective breakthroughs. Be patient with God.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. Every spirit of impatience in my life; be uprooted in Jesus’name.
2. Father, give me the grace for patience, endurance, perseverance and longsuffering, in Jesus’ name.
3. Release upon our G. O and Mummy in the Lord, all the gifts and fruits of the spirit, in Jesus name.
