BY FAITH AND PATIENCE!
“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises” (Hebrews 6:12)
‘Faith and Patience’ (Hebrews 6:12) are two wings of the same bird. You may not always experience instant results from your Faith. More often than not, you must wait for results. Abraham is a prime example; ‘And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised’ It should not really matter to you when the Lord performs His Word. His timetable is perfect; He is never late. What should matter is that you learn to relax in His promise and hold onto your hope, the ‘anchor for the soul’
Joseph’s life also illustrates the working together of Faith and patience. The dreams and visions of his childhood seemed to be hidden forever as he languished in and Egyptian prison. He was there ‘till what he foretold came to pass, till the Word of the Lord proved him true’ (Psalm 105:19) You must understand that the Word of God is testing you and your faith until it has passed the true description of the word ‘faith’.
Faith is patience in waiting on the promises. Therefore, time must pass to prove that your faith is patient. Be encouraged today, Jesus is the ‘veil of Heaven’ as your security. Your patience for the promise will produce!
