Some days can feel like there is not enough hours in the day to finish things and others seem to drag by, but when it comes to having patience, can we understand why God wants us to have it?
When the Israelites were in bondage back in Egypt during the time of king Ramses the second, they spent time working in the land, to provide for their families, but over the span of 430 years things wasn’t what they expected considering that they were once treated good in Egypt while Joesph was the next to the most powerful man in Egypt, but after the passing of him, that’s when another ruler took over and made them slaves.
Jumping ahead to when Moses returned to Egypt after he had talked to God at the bush of fire, God sent him back to free his people, because he had heard their cries, and since Egypt at that time had many gods, the God of the Israelites ,wanted his people to want him as their God, he spent time showing them his powers and all he could do, and he wanted them to choose him over the others, and that is where the patience started.
God took them through the desert over the span of 40 years to show them that with him they would need nothing, but they complained alot during this time. Which begin to get on God’s nerves, simply because God wants us to have patience in life, to trust him, to let him lead us to where he wants us to be, and sometimes God will let us walk awhile in what seems like suffering times but along the way he teaches us, to have patience, to know love, to see him, to let him show us his power, grace, mercy, to show us his heart, which makes him, him. God is beautiful, have faith, and endure to the end. Life isn’t about having the best of the best, it’s about doing the will of God. The whole duty of man, is to fear God and keep his commandments.
