For our first week focused on patience, we looked to 1 Samuel 1:6-2:1 where we discover the story of Hannah.¬† She had waited years for a child.¬† Rather than become frustrated and angry toward God, she prays and tells Him all about it.¬† When God answers her prayer, she gives her son back to God.¬† He honored her waiting and blessed her with even more children.
Bottom Line: When you think you can’t wait, talk to God about it. It’s important for us all to remember that talking to God about waiting will help us stay patient through whatever circumstance we might face.¬† He may not change our circumstance, but He will give the strength to keep waiting well.
