Trust GOD’s ability. Patience is power! It defines you… and it proves how much faith you have in GOD. So whatever you want… don’t chase it or run after it. There’s no need to do so. If GOD intends for you to have something… it’s already destined that HE will give it to you. No worries. In all things… BE PATIENT!
Personal problems can sometimes make you feel like the world is about to end, although it really is not. Whenever you are going through trials, however, it’s easy for your mind to wander off into a state of fear… and get caught up in thinking, “My life is useless and nothing good will ever happen for me.” Yet, that is simply not true. You are not useless. Good things will happen for you. In order good things to happen, though, you can’t lose hope, you have to change your mindset, and you have to do other necessary things to actually turn your life around, to help make happiness possible.
Everyone goes through storms at some point in life. And in no way, can we control when the storms will come. However, it’s good to be prepared for when they do come… and it is good to be patient during the storm. A spiritual storm, just like natural storms, allows GOD to do His work in us. GOD uses trials to build our: Patience, Faith, Character, Endurance, and Strength.
It’s useless, then, to get grumpy and irritated with GOD when you’re going through storms. Although GOD doesn’t need your permission to take you through storms, trials and tribulations… it’s still good to give GOD your full cooperation, because GOD will not build your character without your cooperation, and He will not work within you without your permission.
Someone once said, “When GOD permits His children to go through the furnace, He keeps His eye on the clock and His hand on the thermostat.” I guess they were trying to say… GOD knows the pulse of every person He created. He knows what each of us can take… even when we think we can’t take it. GOD never puts more on us than we can bear to carry within us.
