Today Reminder - 02 January 2013 (Impatient)

A reminder for today
Then the people of Israel set out from Mount Hor, taking the road to the Red Sea to go around the land of Edom. But the people grew impatient with the long journey. (Numbers 21:4)

Impatient – time can be a teacher:

Once again the people of Israel grew impatient with God because their journey was longer, since they were not allowed to travel through the land of Edom. Patience is something I think all of us lack at a time in our lives. There always comes a time when we run out of it and it normally ends in disaster. I struggle with patience a lot and of course the enemy will attack me on this soft spot as much as possible.

My dear friend, add this to your new year’s resolutions. To be more patient with everyone, especially your loved ones and those the Lord sends on your way to help. With patience comes experience. You see if we are more patient we will learn more and become more experienced. So when the time comes we will be more qualified to deal with the situation. Time is your teacher, because patience adds time to your journey and in patience your trust in God is raised to a much higher level. This will not only add to your experience but it will certainly grow your relationship with God. So in the end the longer way will be a much safer and better way than the shortcuts the enemy proposed. 

I pray that the Holy Spirit will give you wisdom and patience in all that you do in this year and that your patience will be rewarded with victories, in Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus and Happy New Year!
