The 15th is almost over and nothing remotely similar to the Japanese earthquake has taken place. Thank the Lord.
Be watching. Be ready. Next month is Sept and the Feast of Trumpets 2011 will be upon us. If this is the year the Lord takes us home let us be found as worthy servants doing what we were told to do.
Let us also have the patient endurance to wait for our Lord if He should tarry for many years to come.
Be ready to go home with the Lord tonight, and be ready to wait for years. That is what the Lord has commanded us to do. Will it be easy? No way, but thats what we have been called to.
Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one's character can take before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast.
grace and peace
