Patience is a virtue and sometimes that is a virtue that we don't like to deal with. John 15: 5 says "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing (NIV). When you think about the growth process of any fruit tree it takes time to develop. A lot of times we see God as our genie, versus our Gardener. As Christians, we expect God to give us quick results. We want the final product but do not want to allow the growth process to happen. When it comes to seeing the fruits of your labor, how patient are you? Yes, we are believing God to deliver us from medicine, unhealthy eating habits, etc. but we also have to remember that we developed an unhealthy lifestyle over a period of time. Our prayer is that you live a healthy life not only for 21 days but for a lifetime, so that your fruits of labor can bless others. Take the time today to ask God to continue to give you patience on this journey. He sees your heart and he is waiting to help you.
Father, I thank you that I developing patience during this challenge. I come to you and ask that you deposit in me the fullness of your Spirit so that I may bear much fruit to others. Give me the patience that I need to finish this challenge strong. I thank you that I have patience now. In Jesus Name.
