God of Patience


Opening Prayer: Join together today in prayer and praise thanking God for all the lessons we are able to learn through His Word. May Help us to focus on what the Bible teaches concerning patience.


Memory Verse:


Romans 5:4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

Talk about today's verse:


1. What book in the Bible is today's verse found in ?

2. There are three key words in today's verse . What are they ?

3. Do you know what it means to be patient ? What other words help
us to understand what this word means ?

To continue
To stand firm
To persevere

4. Are you able to wait with full trust and
faith in God for things that you want or need ?

5. Did you notice the order of the key words in this verse ?
Patience
Experience
Hope

6. There is an order to everything and every word in the Bible has a spiritual
lesson and meaning for us , just as God intended.

Read the following verse:

Ecclesiastes 7:8 Better is the end of a thing than
the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit
is better than the proud in spirit.


Talk about it : When you were born , were you born as an adult ?
We begin as babies , then children , then young adults and then adults.

Think about birds and how they are hatched from eggs. Can they fly right away
or do they have to learn with a parent teaching them the right time and the right way ?

How about farmers growing a crop ? Do you think farmers can raise a crop without the gift of patience ? There is hard , enduring work , daily work
that needs to be done before a decent , fruitful crop can be grown.

Read The Following Verse:
James 5: 7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming
of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.




7. Did you know that God is patient with us ? ( Very , very , very , very patient )

8. Read the following verse:

Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: Romans 15:5

Within A Word

Within a word is found the journey of our lives
Where there are moments of sunshine
Mixed with splatters of darkness
And through it all, Hope survives.

Patience brings the smaller word of pain.
It is often said-“Without pain
we'd have no gain.”
Pain is something we endure
And with God as our help
We shall sustain.

Patience holds yet another word – paint.
We are all born to live under
A wonderful rainbow in the sky
Playing among Earth's golden plains
Breathing in vast oceans of blue
A world designed with colors
Most vivid and true.

Pace is necessary with patience
An important word found within
Noting the stride and steps we take
Towards others and the Lord -
Doing things prayerfully…
While we wait.

In patience, we also find peace
And this special peace
Shall never cease
As it is sent from above
With immeasurable love
Lighting all hungry hearts-
Until the whole universe shines
With God's glory.
