Deeper Life Higher Everyday Daily Devotional Guide




TEXT: JAMES 5:7-11

MEMORY VERSE: “Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy” (JAMES 5:11).

Job represents the best example of patience – patience in suffering. Patience is the ability to endure difficult circumstances or to manifest perseverance when there is delay or disappointment and tolerance in times of provocation, without responding in anger.

Job lost his children and wealth in a day. As if that was not bad enough, he became very sick, to the extent of hating life. The wife and his friends who should be sources of comfort to him, were not helpful; rather, they added to his prevailing challenges. Job resiliently held on to his integrity before God and waited patiently for God’s visitation.

How you need patience! You need patience with overbearing seniors in the school, teachers, older siblings, guardians and parents. Unpleasant circumstances require patience. At such times, pray for grace to be patient. God knows what you are going through and is working out a glorious outcome for you, just as he did for Job.

Those who do not have a Father – child relationship with God, may not have sufficient grace for patience. Give your life to Christ for His abundant grace of patience to flood your soul.

QUOTE: Be patient.

CHALLENGE:Don’t give up.

PRAYER: Lord, give me the grace to be patient.
