Patience that Promotes

[Saturday, March 17]

“The Lord says, there are many in the last days who shall succumb to shortcuts and the easy road. But if you hold onto the quality of patient endurance, surely you shall receive promotion in My Kingdom.”

Prophetic Scripture:

For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise (Hebrews 10:36).

Biblical patience is also longsuffering or endurance. It is the ability to be uncomfortable and put under intense pressure, yet refusing to waver. Special forces in the military are put in combat drill situations, teaching them how to endure adverse situations. They are taught mental and physical endurance that exceeds the endurance capacity of the average person.

Biblical patience doesn’t mean remaining smiley after the fifth red traffic light when we are already late to work! No, it’s talking about not giving up our beliefs even when severely tempted to do so. It means not diverting from godly principles in the midst of rampant deception and compromise. It’s believing Bible promises in spite of those who water them down. It means believing in going to church even when friends are
embracing a more “modern” model. The apostle John warns the seven churches of Revelation that it is those who keep God’s principles to the end that will be rewarded (see Rev. 2:11,17,26; 3:5,12,21). Patience is committed endurance that doesn’t give in to shortcuts, but rather reaches for the prize in the midst of pressure to quit. The apostle Paul reminds us to press in for the prize of the high call (see Phil. 3:14). Press
in today and let patience promote you!


Lord, I ask that You would help me walk in biblical patience today. Help me to have the endurance needed to overcome the evils of the last days. I make a commitment to develop the kind of patience that promotes me in Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
