Patience to Receive Grace

Accepting grace invites you to exercise patience.

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He st my feel on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.
(Psalm 40:1-2)

Developing a relationship with God causes one to go through many internal and external changes.

Learning to patiently endure while waiting on God to work in and around you can seem dreadful. But the process of receiving grace will be more tolerable if you allow it to unfold.

Patience Requires Trust

In this 40th chapter of Psalm, David trusted that God would hear his cry because he waited patiently for a response.

As a result, he writes that God pulled him out of the mess that he was in and placed his feet on solid ground.

When you feel as though you are standing amidst chaos and uncertainty it becomes challenging to fully trust that God has the situation under control.

Grace automatically transforms us and the route that it takes in order to do so typically involves muck and mire.

If you invite patience into your heart, God will hear your cry for relief and come to your aid in due time.
