Pick Up And Carry Your Cross

Scriptural Readings: Matthew 11:28-30

King James Version

V.28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

V.29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

V.30 For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.

New Living Translation

V.28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

V.29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 

V.30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

“Take up and carry your cross.” A commandment from our Lord that may seem an impossible thing to fulfill for us Christians. One thing for sure is that it might show an unpleasant picture, and we have this impression of nothing but difficulties. But faith tells us more than we can expect. And there are spiritual outcomes that are more necessary in our spiritual lives than we can have. Remember, it is a commandment from our Lord Jesus. It also includes having blessings.

In this world, we are living in, every second counts. For each second that passes by, it is of the highest quality to benefit, not only for our daily needs but also for our spiritual needs. As we go over with our lives living in harmony with state-of-the-art technology, uncertainty should not be a part of our day-to-day lives. However, because of the complexity of the world we are living in, mistakes are inevitable.  

“Come unto me…”.

The word “come” in Greek is “deute” (dyoo’- teh), coming from the word “deuro” (dyoo’-ro), an imperative meaning come here and follow; hitherto. Hitherto means describing a state or circumstance that existed until now. Followed by the Greek word “pros”: a preposition of direction, meaning towards, or forward. Now, let us connect the dots. God knows all of us will reach a point that we will need His help, and this is where we might miss the point. When Jesus said come, He means we must go directly to Him. He knows what we look for exactly. There should be no alternatives. What is wrong with us at present is that we have a lot of options. Jesus has become the alternative. We insist on working hard more on the things that we think are the best for us instead of coming straight to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is plain, and it is simple. Come.

“Take my yoke…”.

What comes up to your mind when you hear the word yoke? It is not a common word we hear every day. Is this word relevant today? Does it make sense to anyone, even in our spiritual lives? This word may seem irrelevant, but it infuses us with the most significant consequences in our spiritual lives. 

One dictionary defines a yoke as a wooden crosspiece that is fastened over the necks of two animals and attached to the plow or cart that they are to pull; during ancient Rome, it is an arch of three spears under which it made a defeated army march. 

For these animals, this crosspiece is a thing that would help lighten the load and guide them with their purpose, and that is to help humans. As for some Christians, we might look at the crosspiece as burdensome for us. However, in its genuine sense is a connection for us to deepen our relationship to our God. 

“…and learn of me…”.

Learning is a must for our way of life, most especially in our spiritual lives. The problem is that we sometimes presume challenges as troubles to us. A burden that makes our lives miserable. We think that there are more essential things that we have to attend to than to accept these challenges that will improve our lives. For some, this may be true. But for our spiritual lives, it is entirely different. We have to respond to what the Holy Spirit is telling and instructing us.

Just how are you going to react if someone asked you to drive a massive 18-wheeler truck for the first time? What feelings are there for a first-timer pilot to fly an Airbus A380? Danger might be the first word to pop out of one’s mind. Lack of self-trust can also be in us. The size of what is in front of us is terrifying, especially when we talk about and face an insurmountable problem. It is the reason Jesus told us to come. To learn. And not to be dismayed. The word “learn” in Greek is man-than’-o. Prolongation from a primary verb, another form of which, Matheo, is used as an alternate in certain tenses; to learn (in any way):–learn, understand. Jesus would not let us reach out to Him to suffer. He requires us to come to Him in prayer and surely will learn. To learn from Him will cause finding rest, the opposite of what we presume to have difficulties because of yokes.

For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.

If you can see another angle of the meaning of this word, it has the same predicament Jesus experienced. The wooden cross was weighty for our Lord Jesus, true indeed, but in its spiritual essence, it created the road map for us to travel the spiritual realm that God prepared us with ease to cope up with living in this unbearable world. He picked up His cross (piece), guided, and marched like a leader of a defeated army, but in the end, of course, is the beginning of everlasting life with our God.

God knows we are heading to rough and confusing times. Looking, picking up, and carrying our cross is an activity done every day for us to acknowledge and resolve the truth from lies guiding us where He wants us to be. It is where our lives cross with God’s plan. From the time being that we carry on our crosses, Our Father, through the Holy Spirit, instructs us of the things we need as we undergo with our everyday living. The moment that we carry our crosses, we will feel the power of the Holy Spirit defeating the body, taking control of our souls and spirit. We might bear our crosses every day, but tell us where we are heading, eliminating confusion and uncertainties, placing us in the right direction towards His will.


Why The Cross?

Scriptural Readings: Genesis 3:19; Ecclesiastes 2:22-23; II Peter 2:22; Mark 8:34; Mark 10:21; Luke 14:27; II Thessalonians 2:13-15.

Genesis 3:19

King James Version

V.19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat4 bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou [art], and unto dust shalt thou return.

New Living Translation

V.19 By the sweat of your brow will you have food to eat until you return to the ground from which you were made. For you were made from dust, and to dust, you will return.”

Ecclesiastes 2:22-23

King James Version

V.22 For what hath man of all his labor, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath labored under the sun?

V.23 For all his days [are] sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest1 in the night. This is also vanity.

New Living Translation

V.22 So what do people get in this life for all their hard work and anxiety?

V.23 Their days of labor are filled with pain and grief; even at night, their minds cannot rest. It is all meaningless.

Have we become comfortable with our struggles in our lives? Have we developed callouses for them? Otherwise, we are still having a list of complaints. Another question that we might think of is how to handle it without easily giving up. True enough, we will have success and failure. And they will come from various levels of challenges, and we have to work on them fast.

II Peter 2:22

King James Version

V.22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog [is] turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her, wallowing in the mire.

New Living Translation

V.22 They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.”[g] And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”

Of the many things that we have to do, the first is to question ourselves more often than we think. Why? One would ask. It is of extreme importance that we should always be on guard regarding our emotions. Our emotions are like a Global positioning system. Once we take a wrong turn, we are going to be lost totally. Reactions are an embedded part of us. Our minds and hearts continue to work together, and if they do not conform to each other, confusion will intervene. We will fall back to where we were once before.

Mark 8:34

King James Version

V.34 And when he had called the people [unto him] with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

New Living Translation

V.34 Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. 

Mark 10:21

King James Version

V.21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

New Living Translation

V.21 Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. “There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Luke 14:27

King James Version

V.27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

New Living Translation

V.27 And if you do not carry your own cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple.

For example, as Christians, are we commanded to choose between our possession and the cross? Is it necessary to decide between our properties and the cross? What happened to our volition?

Deciding, just like struggles, is a part of our everyday lives. Our Father in heaven will not take away this capacity to choose. Muchmore, He is always giving us the right decisions and directions, making it unmistakable for us.

The cross will force us to focus on only one thing while controlling our possessions divides our attention. It points much of our awareness to many things causing distractions leading to destructions. Thus, causing more harm than wellness. The cross has only one purpose, and that is putting ourselves into what our heavenly Father wants us to accomplish, His will. Our Lord and Savior Jesus carried the cross, died on it for our salvation. It is God’s will, and the best part is the cross opened a lot of what has God promised us. For some, looking at the cross depicts difficulties. It does not. For most of us, we use our finite abilities to see and interpret the cross as things that make it difficult for us to live. What is meaningful is the spiritual essence of the cross.  

We continually end up in the wrong places, constantly looking for a way out, leaving us with either unavoidable from light worries to unspeakable sorrow. Altogether, we continuously run out of the right cause and answers, arriving from the miseries that God never wanted us to have. The only way to have grace and mercy is to look at the cross. We can only approach the throne of grace if we acknowledge the message of the cross, of what Jesus did in that place, making Him our intercessor to the Father.

It is now the cross that makes the difference. We might end up again in the wrong places, but this time, God, through Jesus Christ (the way), will provide us with the road out, supplying us with the right reasons and with the conclusive answers to our questions in life. The cross is the place where our Father sees us and brings us to His throne of grace, living a righteous life only available through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

II Thessalonians 2:13-15

King James Version

V.13  But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

V.14  Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

V.15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

New Living Translation

V.13 As for us, we can’t help but thank God for you, dear brothers and sisters loved by the Lord. We are always thankful that God chose you to be among the first[d] to experience salvation—a salvation that came through the Spirit who makes you holy and through your belief in the truth.

V.14 He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

V.15 With all these things in mind, dear brothers and sisters, stand firm and keep a strong grip on the teaching we passed on to you both in person and by letter.

It is now clear that the cross is the only place that we have to go. The only acceptable place where God can meet us, and once we accept, will guarantee us of His love. We have now resolved the argument of why the cross. Alleluia!


Afraid of Something?

Scriptural Readings: I John 4:16-18, Proverbs 9:10, I Corinthians 15:56

It is terrifying what is currently happening today, right? Fear grips us, and as we deal with it, it grows stronger and weakens us spiritually.

Do we fear confronting something? While most of us do, we still have more to face. There are a lot of things that we have to understand with this word called fear. We feel it, but we barely explain it. One thing for sure is that we haven’t come even closer to its meaning. 

Fear is only one of the many things a lot of Christians face. But how do we see and deal with it? For some, it is a burden on them, and for some, it is an adventure. Through our efforts, as usual, a lot of options, of course, will give us now and then on how to confront these fearful situations haunting us. Again, having our way will always result in limited and unreliable outcomes.

I John 4:16-18

King James Version

V.16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

V.17  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

V.18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

New Living Translation

V.16 We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.

V.17 And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.

V. 18 Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.


Having a grade of an F is the reason students fear the subject they hate, right? Some students hate math because they fear confronting numbers. But the truth of the matter is that actually, the consequences of failure are the culprit. Failure teaches us a lot of things. A second chance is always available. However, there are damages and sometimes are irreversible. 

Why are some people scared of heights? Spiders? Etc. Sometimes we see people working on top of tall buildings, aren’t we the ones who are more frightened of them falling? For some, just the mere mention of the word spider is a spine-chilling moment. Fear is a dreaded word for us. It creates terror within us, forcing us to make poor and powerless decisions in our lives. Fear is just like a virus that creeps into our system and destroys us.

Proverbs 9:10

King James Version

V.10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

New Living Translation

V.10Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.

Godly fear

We all have fears within us. A variety of these fears immobilize us from accomplishing what God wants for us and for us to do. However, there is another kind of fear which is the opposite of human fear. Godly fear. We need godly fear ensuing victoriously in all our fearfulness in life. We look for many things to triumph over every fear in our lives, only to find out that we need only one fear, the fear of God! Fascinating, right?

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. In this passage, the meaning of fear is reverence. Fear in Hebrew is ‘yare’ is a primitive root; to fear; morally, to revere. Reverence in noun form tells us a deep respect for someone or something. Its verb meaning is to regard or treat with deep respect. To give reverence, exalt, or think highly of is to fear the Lord. The reason Jesus taught us to pray in a manner of saying, “Holy be your name”! As we revere and exalt Him, we also fear Him. It will produce a relationship between a father and his children. It was the original relationship we had until we rebelled against Him. This relationship will give us knowledge (understanding) of the will of our Father for us.

 I Corinthians 15:56

King James Version

V.56 The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law.

New Living Translation

V.56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power


There is an old saying that goes, “scares me to death.” We have our meaning, belief, or definition of death. Would one consider that death to be the most mysterious word? There are more things to comprehend behind this word. But if we are going to examine carefully, we might consider that death is not the cause of fear but its consequences.

Yes, death is the culprit. According to the bible, death has its sting (sin). Whether we are in a pandemic, war, or under any circumstances, we tie up ourselves with all kinds of fear. We might not see the actual picture, but the sting (sin) is where the pain is. The bee is just the carrier of the pain. If we think of a venomous snake, the idea of death in a matter of minutes scares us, but the venom containing the toxin these are the materials that will kill us. 

No matter whatever fear we are having, the sting of death will haunt us. Do we have to blame a pandemic, war, or anything that threatens our lives? One day, the fear of death will catch up with us, and its consequences will face us. The real question that we have to ask ourselves is, “When I die, is it heaven or hell?” There are only two things, to be with our Father in Heaven or everlasting life in hell. Even those who want to commit suicide want death to escape the miseries in their lives. Sin is our crime, and it sentenced us to death and a penalty of everlasting damnation in hell. 

We all know it didn’t end here. It was also a death that gave us our salvation. What happened in Calvary reconciled us with our father in heaven. The implications of our Lord Jesus Christ’s death brought about a lot of things for us. It changed everything. We are now a new creation in Christ Jesus. 

As Christians, we must change our point of view of death. We have to focus on the spiritual essence. The spiritual touches entirely our being, yielding with no options left, but that which is right in the sight of our God. Let us now fear who can destroy both our bodies and souls. The meaning of fear becomes different from the fear we know and suffer. From the fear God requires us to do, and that is to revere and exalt Him. Then, and only then, will we come into a full knowledge of what fear and love are all about… “But perfect love casteth out fear.” If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.


Will, Want, and Wisdom.

Scriptural Readings: Luke 18:22-24; I Samuel 16:7; James 1:5

Are we still struggling to know between God’s will and what we want? Why are we confused and uncertain about this matter? A question perhaps most Christians have. If the answer is yes, then we need a lot of things to seek from God. We have lost the precious time given just for Him, and we have to make up for it as soon as possible and fast. 

Luke 18:22-24

King James Version

v.22  Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

v.23 And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

v.24  And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

New Living translation

v.22 When Jesus heard his answer, he said, “There is still one thing you haven’t done. Sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

v.23 But when the man heard this he became very sad, for he was very rich.

v.24  When Jesus saw this, he said, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God! 25 In fact, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!”


Thinking ahead is saying to God I know what to do, and if something goes wrong, this is the time we ask Him for help. Isn’t an old habit? We might know this or not, but we are trying to persevere and justify our wants rather than God’s will for us, and this is what exactly we want. The attitude of my will is foremost than God’s will. Most of our wants would likely be ending up in worldly pleasures. That is why we must be sure what is God’s will and not ours. For the love of money is the root of all evil (I timothy 6:10).

God does not hate rich people. God warns rich people. God gives us riches in life for one reason, and that is for His disposal. Once our love for God is transferred to the material things, this is where troubles come in. For sure, this will slow down, or otherwise, stunted spiritual growth. We have to get rid of this thing. We came nothing in this world, and when we die, we will leave everything in this world. 

It will all start within our minds, making decisions. God supplies everything, the things we lack, maintain the things we have or increase because God has something for us to do, and sometimes we have many things we do not need and are not happy with them. We have the choice of having a little of something, or perhaps, enough of anything, and maybe, so much of everything because of our free will. Remember, there are only 2 options: either we choose the right thing or the wrong thingTo glorify God is the right thing, and to continue with our ways is wrong.

I Samuel 16:7

King James Version

v.7  But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for [the LORD seeth] not as man seeth;4 for man looketh4 on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

New Living translation

v.7  But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”


God sees us from top to bottom and from the inside out. He perceives exactly the things to do with all our concerns. The first thing to do is to ask Him what things we need and what we don’t. We always ask amiss. We must not worry. Remember that God supplies all our needs through Jesus Christ. However, it does not mean what we want now will not be needed in the future. God will always tell us what we need and what we must do precisely and in order. His will for us is always divine. This is His will and should be done.

James 1:5

King James Version

v.5  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

New Living translation

v.5  If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. 


Still, having difficulties with will and want? We need God’s wisdom. God’s wisdom ends our confusion. His wisdom connects His will into ours, completely changing our wants into His will ending our selfishness and ungodly desires resulting in the satisfaction we need and God’s glorification. For most of us, we spend more time with human ways and endeavor to make things better for us. We seek wisdom in books written by human authors giving us limited results. God’s wisdom is infinite. And we can have it only by approaching the throne of grace. Once we start putting our trust and faith in God through Jesus Christ, wisdom becomes a part f our lives.

Yes, there will be difficulties, but in the end, we will have a divine answer. The important thing is that we have seen the difference between our want and God’s will. All the hidden lies within our wants are exposed. We can eliminate one by one the things that are not needed, no more confusion, only confirmation, revealing what is right and true, God’s will! It can never be a lost cause. 

We have to bear in mind that our God is not the author of confusion. Jesus Christ is the truth. We have to trust what He did in Calvary. This is the only way we would know the truth. The more that we trust Jesus, the more He will reveal the truth and God’s will. There is no other option in finding God’s will but to believe in the power of the cross and the Holy Spirit.


A Chance and Patience . . .

Scriptural Readings:  Matthew 13 24-30, Jeremiah 29:11, Galatians 6:9

How do we see and gauge our patience? Are we struggling with it? If yes, then perhaps, one of the reasons is we are not giving ourselves more chances or time to build more. And if we have no chance, what is next? More struggles. That is for sure. Patience is only one of the many things we need to have a lot in our spiritual lives. We still have kindness, and the list goes on. We are looking forward to developing these things in us, but we feel that the chance of having more time is just another thing that we need to work on.

Because of our imperfection and self-centeredness, we must learn how to deal with patience and impatience. The divine essence has become a mystery for us because we do not have the patience to accept our Father’s messages, or sometimes, we miss it deliberately.

If we look carefully between patience and impatience, these two things should be dealt with separately. They are opposites, and this is why we have to go deeper into comprehending each of them. Most of us would like to have perfect patience, and at the same time, to get rid of impatience in an instant. We can never have patience if we continue having an attitude of impatience. And if impatience rules, then patience becomes history. Remember, we cannot serve 2 masters at the same time. Either we are going to hate the other, or we will love the other. 

Matthew 13 24-30, 

King James Version

V.24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

V.25  But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

V.26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

V.27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

V.28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

V.29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

V.30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

New Living Translation

V.24 Here is another story Jesus told: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a farmer who planted good seed in his field. 

V.25 But that night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away. 

V.26 When the crop began to grow and produce grain, the weeds also grew.

V.27 “The farmer’s workers went to him and said, ‘Sir, the field where you planted that good seed is full of weeds! Where did they come from?

V.28  “‘An enemy has done this!’ the farmer exclaimed. “‘Should we pull out the weeds?’ they asked.

V.29 “‘No,’ he replied, ‘you’ll uproot the wheat if you do.

V.30  Let both grow together until the harvest. Then I will tell the harvesters to sort out the weeds, tie them into bundles, and burn them, and to put the wheat in the barn.’”

Just like the wheat and the tares, patience represents the wheat, and the tares represent impatience. Both are present in our lives, and one might outgrow the other, and unless we get rid of what hinders our spiritual growth, we will never grow spiritually. We simply have to give ourselves chance to work on our patience. Uncertainties are not strange and new to us. What we do not know is to deal patiently with these issues. So, we must give time to work on our patience, and God would do His part. After all, I Corinthians chapter thirteen starts with love is patience. There is no way that God will not grant us the patience that we need more. Love is patience, and love is God.

The question now is, how do we know how to deal with these two first? Which is the best time for us to be patient and not fall into impatience? For instance, we must have patience in waiting for the stop signal to go green. We know that it will turn sooner or later, otherwise, we become impatient by beating the red light. In a situation wherein we are eagerly waiting for a result, most of the time, we are practicing impatience. In this scenario, patience is behind impatience. We speculate and talk a lot about the outcome, a sign of impatience. We very seldom keep quiet and patiently wait for the results. We wait patiently for fruit to ripen, but because of our impatience, assuming it is already ripe, we pick them only to find out it is sour. We know we have patience, but, most of the time, impatience dictates.

Jeremiah 29:11

King James Version

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

New Living Translation

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 

One of the many situations that we must practice patience is when we reach the point of hopelessness. This is the best time to be silent in the presence of God and wait patiently for definite answers. We should not give impatience space. Why? Because we know that God answers prayers! We just have to wait patiently and not impatiently. This is where our faith works against impatience. Our faith in Jesus Christ overpowers our weakest emotions. We have to defeat the evils of impatience by patiently waiting for God’s empowering in us.

Galatians 6:9

King James Version

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

New Living Translation

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

God usually gives answers through intuition. We must be aware of the things happening around us, which God uses, for us to know the answers. However, we have to be very careful because emotions can easily fool us. In this case, patience is in full swing. Problems and uncertainties will come and go, but God will make us strong through our patience by trusting more in Jesus Christ. Learning patience is trusting Jesus Christ alone. The way to have patience is to trust Jesus. This is the divine progress we are looking for in our spiritual lives. W will harvest spiritual blessings!

Our God gives us the chance to make our lives better, including patience. We read many things about patience in the Bible, but it seems that it is not working for us. Patience is the one we always lose, making us impatient. We have patience. However, we keep losing it because we also lose our trust in our Lord and Savior, Jesus. The Lord is patient with us, and so must we. We should increase our patience through prayers approaching the throne of grace of our Father in heaven.

If we continue to trust the Lord, we will experience tremendous patience. This is why a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is needed. Accepting Him as Lord and Savior, we were born again, entering into the kingdom of our Father in heaven, making us a co-heir with Jesus.
