Letting Patience Have Its Perfect Work In You
Could it be that some things may not have materialized because you are in a phase of longsuffering? Although it may feel like what you are waiting for to occur is taking an "extremely long time" and it is just completely "unbearable", God has a long-range plan for each you. As Christians, hope in God and His promises are the anchors of our soul. Therefore, it's vital we have complete and full confidence that the Lord will do all He promises to do in His Word. That's the basis of our faith.
Longsuffering is a Fruit of the Spirit that teaches us how to endure in the face of adversity and go on when everything says no. Yes, there are a few things in our lives that work out exactly as planned, however other things require some form of patience. Rather than putting yourself in an emotional upheaval, it's best to let God birth out of you a full understanding of long term enjoyment of what's promised rather than temporary fulfillment. In this wise, patience will have done a complete work and you are able to walk this fruit out being perfect, entire and wanting nothing.
