What we think is the “big picture” is really a tiny little speck of time in God’s eyes. He is patient in all he does and what seems like an eternity to us is hardly a split second of time to our Father.
1. Take time to truthfully reflect on your patience. Recall a moment when you jumped into a decision prematurely.
2. Though the outcome was not what you wanted, how has that experience given you positive results? Can you see how the Holy Spirit has worked within that particular event?
Challenge: Pick one area where you would like to have more patience while waiting for your desire to become a reality. Develop a spiritual plan you can stick with in order to achieve this goal. Your plan may include things such as scripture, prayer, meditation, seminars, devotionals, counseling from another, etc.
