Patience: A Virtue to be Exhibited! Part Three.

“Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.” Ecclesiastes 7:8

It is important to be patient when waiting for a breakthrough. I remember a couple who married and couldn’t have a baby for years. Finally, after two years of unfruitful marriage, the woman visited her doctor for a checkup, and after divers tests and observations, the doctor confirmed that she could not carry a baby. That stunned and left her helpless. She got home and disclosed the information to her husband, but this man was a man of faith. He was so deliberate in not giving up on his marriage nor yielding to what the doctor said.

He sometimes said, “my babies would look so much like me when they come.” He kept praying even when he didn’t see any result quickly; everything within and about him was never given up. Some of our dreams can’t play out in real life because we tire of chasing them with patience. When God showed us the dream, He never said it would come easy like it was in the dream, but the reality of that dream is sure. It only depends on our tenacious move towards the dream.

Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

After twenty years of unproductive marriage, the woman miraculously got pregnant and gave birth to twins. That was possible because they never gave up. They persisted until their dream became a reality. If there is a dream you’ve got, please fuel it and never give up. The reality is near. Psalm 34:10 says, “Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will lack no good thing.” When we exhibit patience with God, it creates a pathway for a breakthrough. When we are patient, we open the door for God to work in our lives.

Remember, God is faithful and just and will never leave or forsake us. His timing is perfect, and His ways are higher than our own. So, don’t grow impatient when things don’t happen according to your timeline. I understand everyone wants to see results immediately but gets frustrated when we have to wait. But the Bible tells us repeatedly that God’s ways are not our own. In fact, His ways are higher than ours (Isaiah 55:9). Waiting on the Lord doesn’t mean we sit idly by and do nothing. It means having faith that He will come through in His perfect timing. Hebrews 10:36 says, “For you need endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what is promised.”

1. I thank you, Jesus, for giving me the grace to wait patiently for the good plans you have for me
2. Genesis 1:28; In the name of Jesus, you shall celebrate victory over that unfruitful business, marriage, ministry, or anything you are looking to experience a breakthrough in your life. Amen
