LEARNING PATIENCE THROUGH GOD



Learning patience through God
Part of becoming spiritually mature is learning the difference between “no” and “not yet,” between a denial and a delay. The Bible tells us, “He who is coming will come and will not delay.” (Hebrews 10:37 NIV)

If you’re discouraged because God is delaying to answer your prayers, then you have to understand that the delay is NOT a denial. Just because the answer hasn’t come – YET – that doesn’t mean God is not going to answer or that he’s forgotten you or that he doesn’t care about you.
It simply means “not yet!” So you have learn to be patient. Not only once but for every minute you spend working to pass the test. Until you pass the test that God has given you, you will not see any changes in your life. But you have to be patience in your journey and you might not feel the pain of the wait. You have to let the patience be you, it should be a part of your life or rather your lifestyle. God tests you so that you could you can realise His faithfulness in all your trials. 
There is purpose in the process of your trials. Hebrews 12:2 says; waiting on God forces us to look to Him. We are forced to cast our eyes into Him as the source of our faith. It reminds us that Christ’s death and life is the reason we can be filled with and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Trials cause us to continue by increasing our knowledge of God and relying on Him on all that we do. Standing patiently when we wait on the Lord does not mean being stuck at a dead end or in the middle of nowhere. Ephesians 6 tells us to “put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then.” 
To hold ground by remaining obedient to the Lord while waiting is not being passive. Realise that the word stand is repeated three times. Patience is an act of the will to claim ground for the Kingdom of God, and is rewarded richly by Him. Revelation 3:10-11 talk about God’s care for those who persevere through the battle.
Whether we feel we lack patience to wait on God, or to continue to love those that may be hard to love, we do it knowing that we have access to all the patience we need. We can trust God to give us the strength to bear our circumstances and instead wasting time questioning Him and trusting in Him and His word.

WHEN YOU KNOW YOU HAVE CONFIRMATION FROM GOD?

God speaks to us in a still small voice that prompts us in our spirit. There are confirmations that can help us to really distinguish God’s voice in everything that we hear. These confirmations will strengthen our faith and enable us to hear God more clearly as we grow in our faith.

Today we are going to discuss the methods of confirmation that can best verify the message that you have received.
1. The confirmation of God’s written Word – the Bible. Everything that God says will agree with his written Word. He will never tell you to sin or go against a teaching in His Word. This can simply clarify many “messages”. When we read the bible we should not have any preconceived ideas of what it is saying.
2. The confirmation of Godly counsel. God has placed people in our lives to help us to hear His voice. These people may include pastors, teachers, parents, and godly friends. In most cases, they will confirm the voice of God to you and help you to see His plan. This is not to say that you should rely on them only. These people are human and can have their own feelings and fears distort their objectivity. However, they can be a very valuable source of confirmation when you are uncertain of God’s voice. 
3. The confirmation through circumstances. Christians can carefully studying their situation for indications of God’s will. Some Christians have called this the Gideon method or “putting out the fleece.” When God told Gideon that he was to lead Israel into battle against their enemies, Gideon put a fleece out on the ground in order to receive a sign that God was really speaking to him. If you feel led to use this test, come to God with a humble attitude and not a spirit of testing Him. Pray for God to reveal His will and carefully watch the circumstances that relate to that decision. 
Remember that prayer is a conversation. When you ask God to talk to you, be still and listen for His voice. If you expect Him to speak and you are listening for it, He will speak to you regularly. God wants you to hear His voice and He will reveal it to you.

MAKING A COVENANT WITH GOD

Entering into an everlasting covenant with a holy and eternal God is a very serious matter. So serious, in fact, that a soul intending to make such a covenant must possess a clear understanding of its enormous substance, importance, meaning and enduring quality. 

Webster’s New-World Dictionary defines the word “covenant” as follows: 1. The promises made by God to man as recorded in the Bible. 2. The binding or solemn agreement made by two or more individual parties, etc., to do or keep from doing a specified thing. 3. An agreement among members of a church to hold to points of doctrine, faith, etc. Simply put, a covenant is an agreement and a promise. Both in a secular and religious sense it is an agreement between two persons, both of whom intend to keep their end of the bargain.
In the spiritual realm we find the most important covenant of all: that in which God promises eternal life through Christ Jesus unto all who will turn to Him in repentance, live in obedience to Him, and hold fast by His grace until life’s end – a two-way promise.
Essentially, there are two major Biblical covenants. The old covenant found in the Old Testament, and the new covenant found in the New Testament. The old covenant gave way to the new because Christ our Lord came to fulfil the law. 
The old covenant was God’s promise to faithful Abraham and to his seed in succeeding generations. In Genesis 12:2-3, God spoke to Abraham saying: “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed” The old covenant is further conveyed in Exodus 19:5: “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people; for all the earth is mine”. The old covenant is also elaborated on in Deuteronomy 7:9: “Know, therefore, that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, who keepeth covenant and mercy with them who love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations”.
The making of a covenant is an official acknowledgement of God’s promises to man and man’s intent to accept and be obedient to God’s promises and commandments. The covenant with God is conditional on man’s obedience until life’s end.
