“The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
Continuing on with the Fruit of the Spirit Instagram Challenge, after joy comes PATIENCE! Patience is one of the fruits of the spirit that I sometimes forget about, but that is completely necessary to constantly strive for. In this world of instant gratification and virtually almost anything we need at the push of a button, our patience is tested daily. Especially in a season that seems to be just waiting for God’s voice and direction, it’s easy to get impatient or feel as though He’s forgotten about you. In my life right now, it feels as though I’m making huge, life-altering decisions daily (quite dramatic, but you know what I mean), and I’m trying to listen for God’s voice through the noise. Sometimes it feels as though He’s taking too long when life moves so quickly, but it’s so important to remember that His plan is greater than any we could have imagined for ourselves, and because of that, He is always working through our waiting.
This week’s verses are all centered around this theme of patience, and I, for one, am putting these to memory. When it feels like life is throwing me curveball after curveball and I don’t know what God has in store, I must be patient and remember that He is there, He is working, and He will be with me no matter the storm I am weathering. Make room for Him to speak life into you and bring peace to your heart today.
