Glory Seed Devotional’s, 2017: Anticipating and Experiencing Jehovah-Jireh…

Trust, Patience, Faith, God’s Way…


“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us—they help us learn to be patient.” (Romans 5:3, The Living Bible)

“And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady.” (Romans 5:4, The Living Bible)

Not only is the bible about the past, it is also about the present and the future. “We can rejoice, too when we run into problems and trials for we know they are good for us…” Working with the timelessness of the Holy Spirit Paul brings the past, present and future into one verse. Converging on you and in you in the NOW the Holy Spirit brings to bear your past experiences your now experiences preparing you for future experiences at life/living. (Life is what we have, living is what we do with what we have been given.)

As powerful and relevant verse 3 is along comes verse 4 solidifying the Divine Resources and Blessings for the next day, and the next day, and the next day. ”…each time we use it (patience and trust) until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady.” I said this before and I’ll say it again, I am not a patient person. “LORD, if you’re going to fix what is broken with me don’t make me wait, now is the time to fix-it so I can move on to the next thing,” God will tell you that is a familiar phrase in my prayer’s. And as usual they are always met with silence which is God’s way of reminding me it’s always his way not my way. Does that have a familiar ring to you?

As time ticks away pealing off the layers of doubt and pride revealing the truth that God’s way IS the right way. And once we swallow our self sufficiency and join God on his pathway… “Then, when that happens, we are able to hold our heads high no matter what happens and know that all is well, for we know how dearly God loves us, and we feel this warm love everywhere within us because God has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.” (Romans 5:5, The Living Bible)

“May the Lord of peace himself give you his peace no matter what happens. The Lord be with you all.”**

Grace and PEACE,
