~ THE 9 FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT ~

GALATIANS 5:22-23
The 4th Fruit:
Patience -Long-Suffering -One of the main definitions of patience is the "ability to endure persecution and ill-treatment".

Patience is another sorely needed quality in the fast pace world we live in. You can just sit back and watch people lose their fuse like, standing in a grocery store line, a fast food restaurant, road rage, or just looking at someone the wrong way. In our fast-pace world people's fuses are shortened and it does not take much to set them off.

For those of us who are Christians this can be difficult but remember that one of the ways our God is that He is a very patient God. One of the ways that God teaches us patience is by His time line. He works at a much slower pace than we do. Unless we learn to adjust to His slower way of working things out, we may find ourselves losing patience with Him and how He wants to work things out in our lives.  With this quality you are really going to have to depend on the Holy Spirit so that we can properly work up this into our personality.

Here's the antidote: Once the Holy Spirit begins to work this into your personality, you will have to try and move with it and allow it to get worked into your mind and emotions. if you do, then His patience will start to over-ride your impatience, and before you know it, your fuses will start to lengthen and you will not lose your patience like you used to do.
