I remember seeing some shorts to a movie once where a millionaire agrees to pay a couple a million dollars if the wife will sleep with him for one night. What would you do? The answer to that question tests your character. Impatience is often willing to sleep with the enemy to achieve it's purposes. The devil seeks to thwart the purposes of God through our impatience. Impatience sucks faith into a void and I am left grappling with worldly ways of doing things. Impatience is not one of the fruits of the Spirit, but PATIENCE is, and Sarai needed this fruit of the Spirit in Genesis 16:2 (NLT) before she opened her mouth. "... Sarai said to Abram, "The Lord has prevented me from having children. Go and sleep with my servant. Perhaps I can have children through her.""
