Principles of Faith and Patience

It is the will of God that we grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ so that we can be trust with Kingdom responsibilities and kingdom resources. Many people want kingdom resources but not kingdom responsibilities.  Sometimes we seek after the things instead of the kingdom.  We are told to seek the kingdom and these other things will be added to us. Kingdom responsibilities is empowerment to impact lives with God’s word and power!  Many people are not kingdom empowered because they are handicapped by self-imposed immaturity.  Self-imposed immaturity is a lack of discipline to apply the word of God to our lives.

I want to share a principle and a promise with you that should change your life and existence.  It will take the wisdom of God to receive this and to understand this.  Your human mind does not have the ability to comprehend patience having it’s perfect work.  This is not meant to offend anyone, but if our human mind had the ability to comprehend it, all of us would have done so and moved on to perfect, complete and lacking nothing!  It will take God’s wisdom!

Patience: the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset. Forbearance, tolerance, restraint, self-restraint
Wisdom having it’s perfect work in us is like a violinist or a guitarist fine tuning their instrument to perfection for ultimate performance.  Tighter, tighter, to the left, to the right, this string, next string!  Patience fine tunes us to perfection and gives us the ability to wait on God and not be manipulated by our emotions or by circumstances.  Our waiting on God should be filled with joy and anticipation!

Hebrews 6:11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 that you do not become [a]sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Patience having its perfect work is the principle. Perfect (mature) complete, lacking nothing is the promise.  The principle must be obeyed before the promise can be fulfilled!  Don’t get discouraged because God gives us leaders who are examples of faith and patience.  You had better be sure you are following the right leader!  Your leaders should be kind, loving, patient, faith filled and walking out the promises of God!

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.

Patience keeps us calm & settled to wait for faith to operate and manifest its provisions! While waiting we believe with our heart and confess with our mouth God’s promises!

True faith is not just believing for the answer, true faith becomes the answer!  Faith is my healing!  Faith is my victory!  Faith is my provisions!  Faith is my substance and evidence!  I always confess what my faith has become!  Your confession will become your possession!  Hold fast to your confession!  Never change your confession!  Don’t doubt!  Doubt is double mindedness. Hold fast and confess what your faith has become! Be patient until manifestation occurs!
