Patience Works for You

Patience is your friend when things go wrong. Life often brings days when things go wrong. No one is exempt. Such things usually happen at an unexpected time. Don't panic. Look for patience to help you. Problems may not be resolved quickly. Patience will work for you.

Understand that patience always works together with love. "God is love" (1 John 4:8). He is the answer to life's problems. God may not work quickly to resolve your difficulties. He works in His time and always with love. Patience agrees with God and waits on God. Ask God to fill you with His love. God's love always brings patience. "Love is patient and kind" (1 Cor. 13:4, NLT).

Pray the Word: Father, fill me with the Spirit of your love, that I may be patient, knowing that you are working all things together for good to those who love you, through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

Do the Word: When you become impatient, turn your thoughts toward God. Believe that he loves you and cares for you. Trust him to work for good in your life for his glory. Yield to God's love through the Holy Spirit, and patience will work for you.
