Patience Produces Results

It Is Written, James 1:3-4, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience, 4) but let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
One of the definitions of patience is endurance.  If you have been out in the world for any amount of time, you have undoubtedly experienced this.  As you probably know, having patience with others can be difficult.
Patience appears to work a couple of ways.  When you are in a situation that appears hopeless, your patience seems very limited, before anger takes over.  It is much easier to have patience when you see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Patience works pretty much the same way in the spirit world.  The difference with the spirit world, is that you cannot physically see what is going on, and you need faith to deal with it.
The Bible tells us that Jesus said, whatever you ask in My Name, you will receive it.  Because of that statement, most people think every answer is immediate, and only asking is required.
The truth is, complete faith is required, as well as patience.  The average prayer usually take some time to be answered.  This requires patience, which in turn builds faith.  As our faith grows,  patience becomes much easier.
In case you are wondering how to get that kind of faith, here is a good way.  The path is simple, but requires dedication.  Read what the Word says.  You must know Jesus and how He operated between His Father and the Holy Spirit.  Thank God for all He has done for you each day.  As many times as you think of it during the day, just say, I thank you Lord.
If you really seek the Lord with all of your heart, your faith will get to the point, where miracle working faith is as natural as breathing.  You can have whatever you ask in Jesus name, according to His Word.  Until that time, continue to pray.  You will get answers if you believe and endure.  If you have faith, do not give up, because you never know when your answer will come, and I'm sure you don't want to quit a day before you get your answer.  Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
