God: gave us a perfect methodology to His side….
Romans 5:1-5 (KJV) “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”
Sometimes as parents we get impatient with our young ones especially when they don’t “get it” immediately or the first time we correct them. In all honesty, we didn’t either and we still don’t, because we are still messing up in the process. The nice thing about our Heavenly Father is that He gave us a blue print which indicates that He is having patience with us.
One of these days, the light bulb in our brains will go off and we will get it; most certainly, He keeps instructing us on the the manner in which we ought to do things and for sure, His love is demonstrated in our lives on numerous occasions.
It gives a person the kind of faith needed to press on and do what is necessary.
Our hope isn’t in our strength, but in the Almighty God and what He can accomplish in our lives, knowing that it all works together for the good.
