Now The God Of Patience.
“Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:” Romans 15:5 KJV
Let His Patience run through every part of your life. Let His Patience lead you in everything that you say and do. Let His Patience guide your daily conduct. Let His Patience be perfected in every area of your life. Put aside foolish and immature things. Lay aside every immature action and reaction. Let God lead your heart and let His Patience lead you.
Patience is essential for the next level. If you’re not patient in this season, how will you exercise patience in the next season? Romans 15:5 AMPC declares, “Now may the God Who gives the power of patient endurance (steadfastness) and Who supplies encouragement, grant you to live in such mutual harmony and such full sympathy with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus.” If you’re not able to endure in this season, how are you going to thrive in the next season? Patience prepares you for the next season. Patience matures you for the next season.
While you’re diligently waiting on the manifestation of the Promise, how you treat others matters. How you wait on the Promise matters to God. Diligently sow into others while you’re waiting. Sow peace. Sow joy. Sow gentleness. Sow life. Sow encouragement. Choose to build up others while you’re waiting. Romans 15:5 NLT declares, “May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus.”
Choose to reflect Christ in every area of your life. Reflect His Patience. Reflect His endurance. Choose to let your life minister to others while you’re diligently and patiently waiting. “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,” Romans 15:5 NIV
