1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.

I often hear people talk about how hard it is to be patient. I think the reason people have a hard time being patient is because they do not know how important it is to be that way or why God demands this from his believer's.( Proverbs 14:29 A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly.) The reason God demands that we be patient, is because God has a plan or purpose for our every breath. But as humans we are weak in the flesh and we often rush into things without consulting God. When we do things without consulting or trusting God we fail. So many businesses, marriages, relationships and churches fail, because they fail to include God or to make him first. The world has become so impatient, most of us want things now and do not want to wait. Most people often do things because of the way they feel, without thinking about the consequences for their actions. We want our children to grow up fast or early; we want our husbands or wives to be prefect or right for us even though we have not taken the time to learn about or understand them. Also we rush into things without thinking or using the brain that God has blessed us with. Technology , has made us all very lazy, spoiled and impatient. Most of us do not understand that God has an natural order that everything that lives has to follow and there is a reason why everything has its time or seasons. What I mean by seasons, is there is a time when everything that God has created will show its true purpose on that given season. The same thing applies to a man or a woman. That is why there are people who progress early and some people late, because it was their time or season to do so. To anyone who is blessed enough to read this, be patient in all things, even when it comes to your own life. Always pray and consult God before you make any major decision. God has a purpose for us all and when our season comes we all will bare fruit, just like a fruit tree that has been planted for years. Always remember good things come to those who wait, but those who rush may walk into the arms of destruction.
Lamentations 3:25 The LORD is good to them that wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.
