So last night I was driving home to Chicago from college in Indiana, Well I lost control of my car and I crashed into the concrete highway median, I hit it so hard I was sure that I totaled my car, well my phone was just about dead, I didn't know exactly what highway I was on when some random guy pulled up and asked me if I was ok, the front of my car had went up the snow bank and was practically on top of the median, well this guy gets up on the snow mound and pushes my car down off the median/snow mound, I walk around and look at the front of my car and everything was fine except for some bumper damage.... I couldn't believe my eyes. Psalm 34:6-8 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Anyway, The whole reason why I crashed is because I was driving while it was snowing at night, and I was going the speed limit because I really wanted to get home, I was being impatient and God used this incident to show me just how impatient I've been. I am impatient with people who irritate me and I am very impatient about finishing bible college and I am extremely impatient about finding a wife and getting married. After I crashed I could pretty much here the voice of God saying :You need to be patient in all areas of your life. Then today my Pastor preached on the children of Israel murmuring and complaining against God and how impatience is unbelief. Here is a facebook status I posted today: I'm learning a lot about patience. I really didn't realize how serious God is about us being Patient, Impatience manifests itself in murmuring and complaining about the situations and people that God places us around. Which all stems from unbelief. Think about it, Really. Psalm _27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. Psalm_130:5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. Luke_21:19 In your patience possess ye your souls. Hebrews_12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, James_1:3-4 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James_5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. James_5:10-11 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. What has God shown you about patience? what ways has he used to work patience in your life? What are your thoughts?
