Waiting? Why do Christian’s have to suffer? Whether suffering is physical, emotional or both, it hurts. One thing we can be assured of, Christian will suffer and that suffering will temper us. God promises us that if we’re patient in that suffering, He will bless us and we will grow in wisdom and strength because of it.
Think about it. If we wait patiently on the Lord, seeking His guidance and putting all of our trust in His love for us, even these “persecutions” are bearable because the ultimate result, a final harvest of eternal life, is awaiting every Christian who “waits on the Lord.”
God’s Word tells us: “You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.” (James 5: 7-11).
God sends blessings and persecutions into our lives. Our jobs, our church and even family relationships can often become a two-edged sword. On the one hand blessing us and on the other disturbing us. If we wait patiently on the Lord, even these “persecutions” are bearable because the ultimate result, eternal life, is awaiting every Christian who “waits on the Lord.”
. “I pray today in Jesus name that we are granted from above the ability to patiently entire all trials in troubles in this life. Help us Father to understand that waiting is often better than doing. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
