Wisdom from James 5

Wednesdays with the Word


What it means to be patiently waiting:
James 5:7-11
Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the door. As an example of suffering and patience, brothers, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. Behold, we consider those blessed who remained steadfast. You have heard of the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.

Have you established your heart today?
Have you chosen to be willing to be molded into what the Lord has purposed?
Do not grumble... remember God's compassion and mercy.

*ouch* My toes are hurting!
