Live In Patient Faith

When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, “Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.” ~ Exodus 32:1

The people of Israel had to just been brought out of Egypt. They were just freed from slavery. The LORD God did many miraculous things before their eyes, through Moses, while they were leaving Egypt. Even though they saw the Egyptians fall to the glorious power of God, when Moses seemed to have been delayed while on the mountains speaking with God, they began searching in other places for other gods. They even went as far as to create their own gods.

This same thing still happens to us today. We seek after God for as long as He will answer us immediately, but as soon as He seems to have gone quiet, and things aren’t going the way we think they should, we take matters into our own hands, and we create our own gods. We begin to seek after false gods and idols. Because of our lack of faith, we try to replace God, either with ourselves or another false god. This is why patience is a Fruit of the Spirit; if we have faith but we don’t have the patience to see that faith in the promise we were given, then our faith, if you will, is pointless because, without patience, we will move on. We’ll do it our way. We won’t be abounding in faith, but instead, we’ll be working in unbelief.

We have to strive every day to keep our focus on God and His promises instead of what we see around us. We have to live in patient faith so that we can see God’s promises come to pass. So that we can dwell in His good and perfect will.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Live In Patient Faith.
