Patience is a very important factor in life, without it your life can become a living HELL! Waiting, and waiting and waiting, asking God repeatedly to help you through the storm because it seems as if what you are going through will never end. Little do we know, it is God that is pulling us through the storm, it is him that’s providing your strength in your weakest, darkest moments. It is God keeping your mind sane…He is there when no one else is there, but we have to understand that He will not force himself upon us. He is waiting for us to acknowledge that it is him that we need. God is simply saying “in due time my child, in due time you will believe again.”
It may be a little scary but God says to fear not, for fear is of the devil. Fear is not given to you by God, for God provides you with a spirit of Love, so when you feel fearful it’s good to always pray. For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. –Isaiah 41:13
We want things to happen for us right away, but as you can see everything does not happen overnight, and you must understand that you are not exempt from going through trials and tribulations…how else do you expect to grow? Understand that everything and every person have its own process, and take note that your process will be different from the next person process, never compare your situation to another person’s because you never know exactly what they had to endure. You may be stuck in the same situation for years but another person it could only take a couple of months to figure out that this is not the way. You have to look within and begin to tell yourself that this is not right for me…ask yourself what do I have to do to change my situation. It just depends on you, the person, and how badly you want and deserve a change for the better. You have to change your mindset and get a different vision on how you want to exist in this world, you have to find your purpose in life…ask God because he will reveal it to you.
A lot of the things that we endure are because we did it some situations we caused to happen in our lives. Just think back to a challenge where you had a chance to do the right thing but you chose otherwise. We knew better but tried it anyway and now there is a disaster with your name on it. What is the first thing that we do?? Blame who? We blame God…why Lord, why did this happen to me? How did this happen…what did I do to deserve this?? When in fact, you know exactly what you did to get into this predicament. Sometimes we just have to take responsibility and own up to our wrong doings everything is not the God or the Devil’s fault…it just isn’t. Now don’t get me wrong there are things that we have no control of …some situations that we must face even when we don’t want to. This is when we need to really trust the process, and know that God will bring us out even stronger than we were before.
Keep these things hidden in your heart so that when you’re going through the test and trials you will always have a reminder within you to guide you and also to protect you. Jeremiah 29:11-14 says For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. You may feel that all hope is lost while you’re in the mess that you are in, but there are brighter days ahead of you…I promise if you hold on just a little while longer you will get through. Remember that what you are going through is only temporary! You have to Understand the Process and let the Process do its job and that is for you to have a better outcome in the end.
Remember God will never leave you nor forsake you.
