A man that God will work with must be patient with God. When a man is not patient with God, it disrupts divine activities in the life of such an individual. Patience is required to succeed in ministry and life as a whole. Patience is defined as the ability to deal with the passage of time while God is working out the details. This is where several people have a challenge in their walk with God. Patience is what enables a man to keep on with the last instruction he received from the Lord even in the face of difficult situations and circumstances.
Lack of patience will expose a child of God and get him or her to make avoidable mistakes. This was the error of Saul. He wasn't patient enough to wait for Samuel, and it cost him generationally. A man that God will work with will allow God to work out his divine plans in his life. There is a patience that we must allow for God to do all that he intends to do in us, with us and through us. The words patience, longsuffering and endurance are triplets of the same father. You need longsuffering with men; you need endurance when you are dealing with the devil while patience is what you need when you are dealing with God.
The Bible says you need patience after you have done the will of God, not before, after, so that you can obtain what He promised. After you have done all that is to be legitimately done, then you stand and wait for the salvation of the Lord. God will always come for you if you wait for Him.
PRAYER: LORD, help me to wait for you while working out the details of my destiny. Amen!
