“I’m tired of this mess” … Have you ever caught yourself saying that or thinking it as you were working on something or with someone else? Have you ever prayed for patience just before the mess began and wondered why what little patience you had to begin with was being tested?
Newsflash… You asked for the mess…ahem I mean the test. How do you think patience is gained? A muscle only shows definition when it has been developed… So are the godly attributes that make up good character. Just pass the test… you asked for the mess and your proctor the Holy Spirit is with you.
John 16:33 MSG 31-33Jesus answered them, “Do you finally believe? In fact, you’re about to make a run for it—saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I’m not abandoned. The Father is with me. I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world, you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”
