Long Suffering.

“He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a Servant:

18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in Iron:

19 Until the time that his word came: the word of The Lord tried him.”

PSALM 105:17-19

 

 

Have you ever had a garden, or a flower bed? A place where you

purposefully planted something, with the complete and full goal of

receiving exactly what you planted? I think we have all tried this,

to one degree or another. My attempt at this was planting tulips,

in a place where I later found out – do not thrive; nor will they

make it. Funny, isn’t it? We try our hearts out, but sometimes the

results are completely flat.

 

I bet you never thought about the process of growing; long

suffering - have you? This is not a fruit we even care to have -

on our personal trees, is it? We will take the joy, the life more

abundantly program, and by all means – prosperity. But, don’t

you come in through the front door announcing that the season

has arrived, and God is looking for patience - through suffering;

that will be planted; in order to bloom the beautiful flower called;

“Long Suffering.”

 

I bet if we could see the beauty in this flower, we would

embrace the seasons of doing without, while waiting for the

promises of God to manifest.

 

We know by scripture that Joseph was planted, in long suffering,

and was brought forth a refined and chiseled young man; to

properly lead a nation into prosperity, security and safety. May

we allow God to plant us, where we need to be; to bring forth

what must come into the earth through; our lives. I am sure it

will be beautiful, in the end.

 

ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY.
