Step 3: Increase your Biblical Patience
“Let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” –James 1:4 (NKJV)
In a world that thrives on instant gratification, patience isn’t popular. In fact, there was a well-known poster at one time that read, “Give me patience, and I want it NOW!”
Yet, as one of the fruit of the spirit, we know it is something we should aspire to achieve and walk in daily. God never calls us to do anything that we cannot do, or anything that is not to our ultimate benefit. So, no excuses!
Bible patience is that force in our reborn spirit, based on the Word of God, that won’t quit. Bible patience will go after something as long as it takes. For example, if you’re believing for healing and it’s been three weeks but you haven’t seen a change, patience will come and undergird your faith. It will keep you standing and believing the Word of God until the full manifestation comes.
So, what should you do when you have symptoms, and you pray, and nothing happens? Bible patience knows if you believed you received it—you have it. So, Bible patience won’t call people on the phone and say, “Well, I prayed about it, but I didn’t get anything.” No. You take it when you pray. Don’t give it up until that prayer is fully answered and your healing is fully manifested.
