Genesis 12:1-2 (NIV)

[1] The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. [2] “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing

Abraham was 75 years old when the aforementioned promise was given, yet he was 100 years old when Isaac was born. At that time, Abraham STILL lived in tents up until his death.

We love to focus on the PROMISES made to us, but we should realize that before the fulfillment of the promises comes PATIENCE TEST.

These are the “signs” that you are failing the TEST:

  • You express doubt rather than faith
  • You tend to substitute YOUR WAY for God’s Way
  • You become distracted
  • You murmur and complain
  • You quit in your responsibilities

Isaiah 40:31 reminds us: “Yet, the strength of those who wait with hope in the Lord will be renewed. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and won’t become weary. They will walk and won’t grow tired.

In Christ,

Pastor Ronald Camiling
