Be Patient

Our Bible Reading today reminds us in verse 1 that “there is a right time for everything. And everything on earth will happen at the right time.” God has a plan for every person. We must be patient with Him.
In the Old Testament, the prophet Habakkuk complained to God. The people were suffering. Many bad things were happening. Habakkuk thought that God should do something about this situation. In Habakkuk 2:3b God answered Habakkuk’s complaint. God said, “This message is about the end, and it will come true! It may seem like that time will never come. But be patient and wait for it. That time will come. It will not be late.”
When I think about impatience, I think about Abraham and Sarah. God promised them a son. But Abraham and Sarah became tired of waiting for God’s promise. They decided that Abraham should have a son by Sarah’s maid, Hagar. That was not God’s plan. Many problems happened because they were not patient.
Remember that God has a special plan for your life. Be patient with Him! Depend on Him to show you His plan.
