Unlimited Patience

The more we understand the depth of God’s love, the more we will begin to be as patient and merciful with others as He is with us. In the natural, we can’t imagine how that’s possible, but we need to remind ourselves, with God, all things are possible.

How can this be

But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. 1Timothy 1:16

You Decide

I haven’t mastered the “rejoice in our sufferings” aspect of God yet, but I’m getting closer. I have to admit, too, I don’t suffer much,and God takes excellent care of me. I’m very blessed in so many ways, and it seems I’m seldom lacking anything.

Allowing God to take care of things doesn’t mean we can sit back, and not do our best, but, we can maintain our peace and confidence while in the midst of whatever challenges we face. When we truly grasp the fact God is with us and will see us through every situation, our character and hope will grow stronger, and we will rejoice even in the midst of life’s trials and troubles.

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3-4
