Run With Patience

Sometimes we need a refresher course on the importance of God’s grace in keeping us from living a lower, common sense life.

It is God’s grace that lifts us up out of what we can comprehend with our own limited mindsets and understanding into the unseen realm, where by faith, we can walk confidently through the things we don’t understand.

It’s important that we learn to ‘run with patience’ – doing our daily duties, keeping our commitments and serving God, even when we are full of sorrow and uncertainty.

Anyone can sit and wait for the emotional and spiritual storm to pass, but when we run and exert ourselves, in spite of our pain, we are strengthened in The Lord and gain endurance.

God’s grace empowers us to live victorious lives in the midst of great uncertainties and seeming injustices.

Grace enables us to walk in the certainty that God is a good and just God, even when our prayers seem to be going unanswered.

I believe this, even though I don’t always see the evidence or feel victorious.

I don’t trust my eyes or my feelings. Bridging the distance between what is fact and what is truth in my life is only possible by grace, through faith.

I thank God for his grace. I thank him for the joy that He gives even in the midst of suffering. I thank Him for the courage that I have found through Him.

I do not fear pain like I once did, because I know him.

Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Whisper the name of Jesus and remember. Remember His promise, that we are not alone. We are not orphans. He has sent the Spirit to guide and comfort us.

Do not be afraid to walk through doorways of pain on your path to healing and wholeness.

We are not subject to random coincidences.

God has a plan for our lives and will redeem our problems and pain when we put our trust in Him.

  1. This: “God’s grace empowers us to live victorious lives in the midst of great uncertainties and seeming injustices.” is a great lesson to learn. It has been for me. And it’s taken a lion’s share of “uncertainties and seeming injustices” to get me to the point of trust in God.
