Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Patience) – Waiting on the Lord - Monday, May 13th

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord. Psalm 40:1-3

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

We move on this week to patience and kindness in our list of the fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23. We will focus on patience first. Patience is waiting. Patience has more to do with our relationship with God than we might think. It really defines who we are in relationship to God. God is the Creator and we are his creatures. As the Creator his is the "initiator" in his relationship with us. Our fundamental role as God's creatures is that of being "responders" to him. This arrangement necessitates that we wait patiently for the Lord as our Psalm talks about.

If we become ones who get this right, it will revolutionize our lives and in turn impact our relationships with others in mighty ways. From our Psalm we see that waiting patiently for the Lord frees him up to work powerfully in our lives. Impatience is a huge problem for most of us. The Holy Spirit can produce the fruit of "patience" in our lives and when he does, the words from the Psalm, "many will see what he has done and be amazed" will be very fitting.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I am so used to being in charge and going about "initiating" all over the place. Help me to wait patiently for you. May the living I do be the living you initiate and empower me to do. May my patient response to you become the same patient response that the people in my life experience from me. Amen!
