Pocket Sized Thoughts – Patience – Part 2

James seemed to know quite a lot about patience. He’d seen farmers at work, sowing their seed, then waiting (James 5:7). The farmer does not dig up the seed to check on its progress! James exhorts us to be patient. God has done His great work of salvation in Christ. If we have believed this wonderful truth, then the fact of Christ’s death and resurrection is like a seed sown into our hearts. We don’t have to dig it up and inspect it every five minutes! We are not holding onto some unrealistic hope. It is an eternal truth and we are to believe it and rest upon it. In this way our hearts will become settled and our lives established upon all that God has done through His Son; all this is in the light of the fact that His coming is drawing nearer. This kind of patience is the best preparation for His second coming.

PRAYER :- “Lord, thank you that the seed of your word will bear fruit in my life in spite of all that is contrary to it.”
