Galatians 5:22 | Wait with Patience - By Joyce Meyer


By Joyce Meyer -Many people want change, but they don’t want to go through the waiting process.  But the truth is, waiting is a given, we are going to wait.  The question is, are we going to wait the wrong or right way?  If we wait the wrong way, we’ll be miserable’ but if we decide to wait God’s way, we can become patient and actually enjoy the wait.It takes practice, but as we let God help us in each situation, we develop patience, which s one of the most important Christian virtues.  Patience is a fruit of the Spirit.  It’s developed only under trial, so me must not run from difficult situations.As we develop patience, the Bible says we finally feel completely satisfied, lacking nothing.  Even our relationship with God involves progressive changes.  We learn to trust Him in a deeper way by going through many experiences that require us to wait longer than we’d like.Trust me, the waiting may be hard, but it will make you stronger.  The benefits that patience brings are certainly worth any uncomfortable wait!Galatians 5:22 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulnessPrayer Starter:  God, I want to change and grow deeper in my relationship with You.  I understand that this means developing patience, but I know that I will grow stronger as You develop patience in me.

Galatians 5:22 | Wait with Patience - By Joyce Meyer

By Joyce Meyer -

Many people want change, but they don’t want to go through the waiting process.  But the truth is, waiting is a given, we are going to wait.  The question is, are we going to wait the wrong or right way?  If we wait the wrong way, we’ll be miserable’ but if we decide to wait God’s way, we can become patient and actually enjoy the wait.

It takes practice, but as we let God help us in each situation, we develop patience, which s one of the most important Christian virtues.  Patience is a fruit of the Spirit.  It’s developed only under trial, so me must not run from difficult situations.

As we develop patience, the Bible says we finally feel completely satisfied, lacking nothing.  Even our relationship with God involves progressive changes.  We learn to trust Him in a deeper way by going through many experiences that require us to wait longer than we’d like.

Trust me, the waiting may be hard, but it will make you stronger.  The benefits that patience brings are certainly worth any uncomfortable wait!

Galatians 5:22 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness

Prayer Starter:  God, I want to change and grow deeper in my relationship with You.  I understand that this means developing patience, but I know that I will grow stronger as You develop patience in me.

Do not doubt God in your situation and it will be given to you - James 1:5-6


If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.  But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  James 1:5-6

Remember that God will never promise anything that He is not able to do. He would not have started His good work in you if He will not finish it. Your God is good and faithful. He is the very definition of consistency. You may be believing in things that you cannot see, but because this faith is anchored in Him, it will surely bear fruit, beloved.

Romans 8:18 - I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Sharing in his SufferingBy Joyce Meyer -As Christians, we like the though of sharing in Christ’s glory, but what about sharing in His suffering?  Jesus took care of the death penalty once and fora ll so we don’t ever have to worry about that again.  But the Bible teaches that we must suffer times of trial if we are to share in the glory.  Is it worth it?  According to Romans 8:18 it certainly is!READ MORE ON JESUS PERSEVERED

Remember “that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” James 1:3





Testing of Your Faith2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
