DON’T RUSH! BE PATIENT

FRIDAY 16TH MARCH, 2018 MORNING PRAYER DEVOTION
SCRIPTURE READING:- 1 SAMUEL 13:1-15
TOPIC:- DON’T RUSH! BE PATIENT!
TEXT: GENESIS 16: 3-4

Impatience is deadly, it has sent thousands of people to their early grave. Impatience means lack of patience, restlessness and intolerance of delays, anxiety and eagerness, especially for something.
An ancient proverb says “patience is a flower that grows not in everyone’s garden”. Many find it difficult to cultivate this lovely flower in the garden of their lives. Yet, it is said often that whatever patience cannot do, impatience cannot and will never get it done. There are numerous tragedies of impatience which are everywhere in our society today manifesting as insanity, robbery, murder, abortion, occultism, suicide and premature deaths.

Sarah became impatient for the fact that God had promised them a child. She pressurized Abraham to put Hagar her housemaid in the family way. This did not only put Sarah herself into troubles but generations after continued to suffer for it. See Genesis 16:1-4,10-12.
King Saul was chosen of God and loved by his people. The kingdom was his. His assignment was however different from that of a Priest, Samuel, the priest who anointed him king told him to wait. For seven days he waited for the sacrifice to be made but then he had a problem with impatience and could not wait any longer. He intruded where he should not and so he lost the throne. Unfortunately, just as he was rounding off his sacrifices, Samuel the Priest came. It was too late for Saul to retrieve his steps. See 1 Samuel 13:8-14.

There is nowhere in the Bible where the sin of impatience received divine blessings. Esau rejected and despised his birthright. He would have waited until he has taken time to prepare his own meal. We were not told that there was famine in the land then. His problem was that he could not endure hunger until he prepares his meal. See Genesis 25:29-34.
Impatience kills. So, lets deal with impatience in our lives and embrace patience.

Prayer Points:
1. You spirit of impatience, I command you to lose your grip over my life and die.
2. Fire of God, descend upon me and consume every spirit of impatience from my life.
3. My Father, repair every damage that the spirit of impatience has caused in my life.

Have A Fulfilling Weekend!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
