Topic: Focus on Following Patiently
Hebrews 12:1 “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,”
This opening text is a frequently read text, but have you noticed the seemingly contrasting terms there: ‘run’ and ‘patience’? Speed and haste are not the same, what God is requesting us to do is to follow His directions but carefully and patiently, doing it as quick as His grace avails.
We know there is triumph assured at the end of following God, but nobody gets the prize ignoring instructions. Does it often feel like things don’t work out even after following His directions? It’s high time you did so in God’s way and at His pace. Peace.
Talk to God: Father, teach me patience in you in Jesus name, amen.
