We have constantly have the patience and love towards one another as GOD has for us.
May we never forget the love GOD has shown us through all things.
GOD BLESS US ALL!! Amen!! Know that the more we rely on HIM, the more patience we receive. Our patience through all things brings our joy in HIM!! Seeing how HE changes us, molds us, holds us, guides us, and humbles us, is the most joyous experience in the world. Be loving, kind, honest, and generous towards one another and watch the beautiful rewards and changes of the FATHER!!
Please pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:
7 Now be patient, brothers, until the Lord's coming. Think of a farmer: how patiently he waits for the precious fruit of the ground until it has had the autumn rains and the spring rains!
8 You too must be patient; do not lose heart, because the Lord's coming will be soon.
9 Do not make complaints against one another, brothers, so as not to be brought to judgement yourselves; the Judge is already to be seen waiting at the gates.
10 For your example, brothers, in patiently putting up with persecution, take the prophets who spoke in the Lord's name;
11 remember it is those who had perseverance that we say are the blessed ones. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and understood the Lord's purpose, realising that the Lord is kind and compassionate.
12 Above all, my brothers, do not swear by heaven or by the earth or use any oaths at all. If you mean 'yes', you must say 'yes'; if you mean 'no', say 'no'. Otherwise you make yourselves liable to judgement.
13 Any one of you who is in trouble should pray; anyone in good spirits should sing a psalm.
14 Any one of you who is ill should send for the elders of the church, and they must anoint the sick person with oil in the name of the Lord and pray over him.
15 The prayer of faith will save the sick person and the Lord will raise him up again; and if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.
16 So confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another to be cured; the heartfelt prayer of someone upright works very powerfully.
17 Elijah was a human being as frail as ourselves -- he prayed earnestly for it not to rain, and no rain fell for three and a half years;
18 then he prayed again and the sky gave rain and the earth gave crops.
19 My brothers, if one of you strays away from the truth, and another brings him back to it,
20 he may be sure that anyone who can bring back a sinner from his erring ways will be saving his soul from death and covering over many a sin.
I guess I was supposed to read this, since the subject of my confession this morning was with regard to my lack of patience.
19In your patience you shall possess your souls.
3And not only so; but we glory also in tribulations, knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4And patience trial; and trial hope;
5And hope confoundeth not: because the charity of God is poured forth in our hearts, by the Holy Ghost, who is given to us.
Amen!! HE always knows what we need.
Amen!! One of my favorites when I first started to hear the Holy Spirit years ago:
2 My brothers, consider it a great joy when trials of many kinds come upon you,
3 for you well know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance, and
4 perseverance must complete its work so that you will become fully developed, complete, not deficient in any way.
