Day 20 – Patience

Day 20 – Some refuse to wait long enough for their harvest

Between sowing and reaping, you have the waiting season.  Waiting means patience!  And patience is also a seed that you sow.  Waiting reveals trust (Lam 3:26).

While you are waiting, do not allow a critical spirit to breed.  Doubt and unbelief can be spoken.  It can stop the harvest.  Trust God through the seasons of waiting.  Our schedule and anger don’t intimidate God.  He will decide when it is time – His ways aren’t our ways (Is 55:8-9).

He has promised it will come (Is 55:10-11.  Get excited about the harvest (Is 55:12).  Financial disaster will be replaced with financial miracle (Is 55:13).

Stay focussed – keep your eyes upon the rewards that follow your waiting – ie when David took on Goliath, he knew exactly the reward he would be getting.  The spoils of war are worth the wait.

Your enemy shall be defeated (Is 41:12-13), the Holy Spirit fights for us (Is 59:19).

Don’t let words of discouragement come (Is 41:10), and don’t speak words that encourage the enemy.  If you talk like a victim (Prov 18:21), he’ll be encouraged to attack you again and again.  Allow your words of faith to influence the heart of God – Matt 12:37.  Be thankful (1 Thes 5:18), pray continuously (1 Thes 5:17).

Don’t create a backup plan!  Eph 4:27 tells us “nor give place to the devil”.  A backup plan is allowing the enemy a foot in the door.

Feed your faith while you are waiting.  Rom 10:17 tells us that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  So keep reading God’s word, keep reading books about what you want to reap, keep learning, keep praying.  If you want to see God healing people, read the scriptures about healing, listen to successful people – keep praying and believing for it.

Wait joyfully.  Wait patiently.

This is a summary, from chapter 20, 31 Reasons people do not receive their financial harvest, written by Mike Murdock.
