WHAT DO I REALLY NEED? THE SUDDEN NOT SO SUDDEN MOVE OF GOD...

LOVE IS PATIENT...

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

1 Corinthians 13:4 (quickview)  (KJV) Charity suffereth long, ...

1 Corinthians 13:4 (quickview)  (NIV) Love is patient,...

1 Corinthians 13:4 (quickview)  (NLT) Love is patient...

1 Corinthians 13:4 (quickview)  (MSG) Love never gives up...

Life is about choices, daily menial choices.

A consider ACTION? But often we are driven not by action but by REACTION.

I read a study of successful people.

1. 3/4 of all successful people came from severe poverty and many from broken

homes and sad lives.

2. Many of these successful people knew terrible psychological scars.

3. 1/2 of the individuals had serious handicaps to overcome.(Cripple, deaf, blind, etc.)

One way to SEE how tall you really are is to JUST JUMP IN OVER YOUR HEAD?

LOVE IS PATIENT!

TEXT:

Hebrews 10:36 (quickview)  (KJV) For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will

of God, ye might receive the promise.

Hebrews 10:36 (quickview)  (NLT) Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue

to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.

WE LIVE IN A DOG EAT DOG WORLD.

LIFE AND THE CHURCH BETTER CONFORM TO THE FAST FOOD, FAST LIFE,

FAST LANE LIFE STYLE THAT DOES NOT PUSH THE PATIENCE LEVEL

OF A FORGETFUL BUSY SOCIETY. WE SEARCH TO TICKLE EARS AND

DESIGN INSTANT ENTERTAINMENT AND DRAMA TO SATISFY OUR FAST

CHANGING AND FAST SPEED CULTURE.

WE TEND TO DEMAND GOD TO WORK INSTANTLY IN OUR LIFE AND FAMILY

RIGHT NOW! WE DEMAND THE SUDDEN MOVE OF GOD FOR US TO PRAY,

SNAP OUR FINGERS, AND SUDDENLY THE ROAD IS SMOOTH AND EASY.

MAY GOD HAS A BETTER PLAN. MAY GOD REFUSES TO WORK ON HIS

TIME-TABLE... GOD IS GOD...

GOD IS LOVE, LOVE IS PATIENT... SUFFER PEOPLE... GOD DOES...

LOVE IS PATIENT!

DEFINE PATIENT, PATIENCE:

Able to remain calm and not become annoyed when waiting for a long time

or when dealing with problems or difficult people.

Done in a careful way over a long period of time without hurrying.

Bearing pains and trials calmly without complaint,

Forbearance under provocation or strain,

STEADFAST DESPITE OPPOSITION, DIFFICULTY, OR ADVERSITY.

Able or willing to bear, LONGSUFFERING

A person that has to wait: PATIENT

LOVE IS PATIENT!

THE SUDDEN, NOT SO SUDDEN MOVE OF GOD REQUIRES LOVE AND PATIENCE.

THE BATTLE IS THE FLESH AND THE SPIRIT ---

I CAN'T WAIT, I WILL HELP GOD...

Genesis 12:1 (quickview)  Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and

from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great;

and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that

curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

THERE IS A WONDERFUL PROMISE OF GOD TO ABRAM AND HIS WIFE SARAI.

They believe the promise and ACCEPT THE PROMISE AS PERSONAL.

SO THEY RENTED A U-HAUL TRAILER AND OBEYED GOD...

THEY LOADED UP THE TRUCK AND THEY MOVED TO BEVERLY, HILLS THAT IS...

NOW ABRAHAM AND SARAH ALLOW SELF-DOUBT TO GET THEM TO
