Tonight’s discussion will deal with patience and how to obtain it especially during trials and tribulations. These seem to be the most difficult times as to wait and trust that the Lord is working it out. Not only, is He working it out but the Lord had foreseen your trail and tribulation before you even began experiencing it. We will talk about how to let go and let God realizing the more we work on a situation instead of waiting on the Lord we might be digging our hole even deeper. We will use Philippians 4:4-9 as the back drop for our scripture and also a guide as to what to do when we become a little anxious or inpatient. We have to get to the point even in our trials and tribulations; we rejoice. Even if it requires you to look around and see what the Lord is doing. How even in the midst of your trail and tribulation you are blessed for one because you have the ability to call on the Lord. The scripture is quoted as to say, “Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, let your requests be known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” We have to understand the Lord is at hand and is in control of all situations. We don’t have to be anxious for anything; God is able to guard our mind and hearts. Exactly, as the Word teaches the peace of God surpasses all understanding. We have to get to a place of peace even though we may be surrounded by turmoil. We have been taught how to obtain peace and that is through praying, fasting and reading the Word. If that doesn’t work then we’ve been given another avenue to help us obtain patience and not to be anxious and that is to mediate on certain things. These are things we will discuss in depth in tonight’s discussion as we learn to use these tools which will help us with our patience.
