Rom 8:25

But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

Patience as different from longsuffering (which is restraint and tolerance or slowness in avenging wrongs) is according to Thayer’s Greek Definitions, the characteristic of a man who is not swerved from his deliberate purpose and his loyalty to faith and piety by even the greatest trials and sufferings. Patience can be best understood as patient continuance (Rom 2:7)

There is the instantaneous work of grace that we have access to by faith in the new birth. But there is also our progressive walk that is through patience in the hope of our calling - the fullness of our inheritance and our promised reward.

In anticipation of that which we hope for, it is expedient we remain steadfast in our confession, our relationship and lives as children of God. Jesus said “blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing” (Mat 24:46). It is with patience that we remain faithful and righteous, whether in tribulation or in rejoicing, sun or rain, day or night. And it is with patience that we continue in the word, endure till the end and overcome (see: John 8:31, Mt 24:13, Rev 2:26)

Go into today maintaining your conviction as a Christian; with the understanding that with patience, nothing is able to shake you from your stance in God (Rom 8:35-39). Your portion is from victory to victory.

PRAYER: Lord, with all diligence, I add to my faith, patience. Help me to hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of my hope firm unto the end in Jesus name. Amen
