Summary: This is #9 in a series on UNDERSTANDING LOVE: PATIENCE AND TRUST... We must realize there may be a great wall between where I am and God's plan of where He wants us to be. This wall will require patience to overcome and move in the plan of love.
#9 UNDERSTANDING LOVE: PATIENCE IS COMPLETE TRUST.
PATIENCE, TRUST AND FAITH KNOW THERE IS A WALL BETWEEN MY MIRACLE AND ME...
WE SHALL OVERCOME
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr.
TEXT TO TRUST AND UNDERSTAND:
2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself
strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore
from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
PATIENT TRUST KNOWS: THIS OBSTACLE COULD BE A MIRACLE IN DISGUISE...
TODAY THERE IS A LACKING OF UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD HAS A PLAN AND WE MUST
BE PATIENT AND TRUST HIM COMPLETELY.
I read about this speed boat racer that had been in many boat races. In one race his speed combined
with hitting some large waves brought danger. The forces of the waves and his speed combined and it
threw his boat in a spinning action into the air. The force of the speed spinning the craft to the air---
the boat crashed with great force into the water.
For a few seconds the driver was unconscious and when he became aware he was buried in the water.
During the accident he lost all sense of direction to where the surface of the water was. He panicked and
started fighting. He calmed down and decided instead of trying to determine which way the surface of
the water was, he would ALLOW THE SAFETY VEST TO PULL HIM. The buoyancy of the LIFE VEST
slowly started pulling him upwards. Then he saw the light and started swimming to the surface.
Oftentimes we are drowning in the storms of the waters of pain, problems and trials. What do I do?
What is the right way to react to this situation? These problems could destroy us? This could be a
STUMBLING BLOCK? Or it could be a STEPPING STONE?
AT TIMES LIKE THESE WE MUST STAY VERY CALM AND WAIT ON THE DIRECTION OF
GOD'S PLAN. THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN LEAD, GUIDE, GUARD AND PROTECT US AND BRING
US TO REAL GROWTH AND NEW HOPE AND NEW LIFE. WE ARE NOT INDEPENDENT OF GOD.
WE ARE TO BE TOTALLY SUBMITTED TO DEPEND AND TRUST THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL
NO MATTER WHAT WE SEE OR HOW WE FEEL!
DO WE ACCEPT WE HAVE A COMMANDER IN CHIEF AND WE MUST SUBMIT?
WE UNDERSTAND WE MUST START AT THE BOTTOM AND THEN WE WORK OUR WAY UP
FROM THERE. TODAY MANY PEOPLE WANT TO START AT THE TOP.
JESUS ASK YOU: WILL YOU TRUST ME?
We have a COMMANDER, He is in charge... If we really trust, we must accept there is a GOD.
GOD is more than just a creator --- GOD IS THE AUTHORITY.
Matthew 6:30 (KJV) Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow
is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Matthew 6:30 (MSG) "If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are
never even seen—don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?
IF YOU LISTEN TO THE TV-RADIO PREACHERS OF TODAY:
WE ORDER GOD WHAT TO DO AND WHEN TO DO IT...
IT IS LIKE ORDERING FROM ON LINE... God do this!
Will we WILLINGLY SUBMIT TO GOD AND HIS SEASONS...
YOU CAN NOT TRUST GOD WITHOUT PATIENTLY SUBMITTING AND TRUSTING HIM.
WE MUST BE PATIENT AND TRUST GOD'S PLAN ---
HE DOES NOT HAVE TO EXPLAIN WHAT HE IS DOING UNTIL WE CLEARLY UNDERSTAND
AND GIVE HIM OUR APPROVAL.
Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts
than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither,
but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread
to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but
it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12 For ye shall
go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into
singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
THERE ARE THREE KISSING COUSIONS YOU GET WHEN YOU MARRY INTO THE FAMILY OF
GOD. TO BE HONEST THE THREE WORK IN SYNERGISM --- IN A HEALTHY SITUATION ALL
THREE PULL TOGETHER.
