Cultivating Patience In An Impatient World

James 5:7-11

 

This week, Pastor David shared about believers being called to patience, even when God’s timing does not match ours. Reread James 5:7-11 as you consider these questions.

  • When have you been tempted to be impatient with God’s timing? Describe what that looked and felt like for you.
  • When is the last time you have, for whatever reason, experienced “delayed gratification”?
  • How is patience “counter cultural” to our society today?
  • What circumstances are challenging your personal patience right now? Your spiritual patience?

In your time with God this week, examine the circumstances you noted above. Ask God to guide you in those circumstances and make a commitment to Him to cultivate patience. Surrender to God’s desire for your “holiness”, regardless of whether or not that happens in your timing.
