Day 10 Be Patient

Ephesians 4:2
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

When Moses was a young man, God put the dream in his heart to deliver the Israelites out of slavery. But he got in a hurry and stepped out of God’s timing, killing an Egyptian who was mistreating a Hebrew slave. He spent forty years on the back side of the desert in hiding. It looked as though that one mistake disqualified him from God’s calling. I’m sure he often thought, “You’re a failure. You missed out.” But at eighty years old, having learned to be patient and humble, God came to Moses and said, “Now you’re ready. Go deliver My people.”

God doesn’t judge you by one mistake or by five thousand mistakes. His calling on your life is irrevocable. Moses had given up, but God doesn’t give up. You may have counted yourself out, but God has already counted you in. That mistake doesn’t determine the rest of your life. Keep doing the right thing, keep passing the test. God is about to take you to the next level.

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for the calling You put in my heart and that my mistakes and failures cannot nullify it. Thank You for the steps and the refining process You are working to bring it to pass in my life. Help me to be patient and know You are always on schedule. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
