Ecclesiastes 7:8 NASB
The end of a matter is better than its beginning;
Patience of spirit is better than haughtiness of spirit.
King James Version
Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
Patience is an attribute of God.
This virtue is seen in the Holy Spirit, and He bears this fruit in us when we allow Him to work in us.
The fruit of patience is borne in us through trials.
²Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, ³knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. ⁴And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
The child of God who is patient is able to trust and wait on God till the end to see His promises fulfilled in their life.
They start a project and are able to complete it no matter how long it takes.
Dear friends, cooperate with the Holy Spirit, and allow the fruit of patience to be borne in you.
Without patience, you cannot fruitfully walk with God.
- Abraham was patient with God for twenty-five years before enjoying the promise of his son Isaac.
- Joseph was patient for thirteen years before God made him a prime minister of Egypt.
Friends, how long have you waited?
Keep being patient, and God will surely visit you.
▪︎ Ask God to give you the grace to be able to bear the fruit of patience.
