hi this is nikki torreon thank you so much for downloading is high ass i believe got his amazing things in your future hope you enjoy this message in my daughter her application for college she was going to go to a university and so it was at end of her senior year she began to send out applications to see where she would go to school i remember they said it was going to take a few months to get those applications back and see which school she was accepted in but you know those months just seem to take even longer it's like it was taking for ever to get a response back from the school and she was anticipating what school she would go to all her friends we're going through the same process they were waiting for their answers and it's got
funny because as they were waiting it was as if they had more questions in their heart and mind there god what have i get accepted this school who live where why if i get it that school where well earlier you see they were participating in all this and it was just formulating more doubt and more questions in their minds about this situation you see they were weighty and it was making them weary have you ever waited been frustrated calling my daughter she couldn't make plans until she got this answer you see it happens to all of us we all go through this weighty process is no fun it can be difficult it can be challenging and it can be hard but can i tell you god is not making its way to make it happen on us he's
causing us to develop in our character and in our strength you see we all have patience we need to acquire patients is a strain patience is what brings forth gods promises the word says it's through patient endureth that we bring for the pro this is a guy you see my daughter was accepted to a college should is really happy about it then she started waiting to see what sorority he would get in she was waiting to see what kind of brain she would me she's gonna be waiting to graduate she'll be waiting to see what job she gets who she marries waiting to have a baby you see life is a process of waiting she's eighteen years all she's got a lotta waiting to do
so the earlier now we learn this process the happier we're going to be you see wonder sometimes that those girls even enjoyed the last semester of high school because they were so concern worry and frustrated about what was going to happen in the future you it's interesting got always puts us at the right place even if it's not the place we think we should god always works it out for us you see we're going to be waiting most of the time so we need to learn to wait well as a affording thirty one says way on the lord and he will renew your strength see we're never gonna white well unless we wait in the strength of god sometimes we make the mistake of thinking waiting is passive
we're standing in the corner with our hands folded just waiting for the right thing and waiting for us to get this great bright way for our career to start missing doesnt that we should sit around and way we should be actively waiting should be pursuing god not just waiting to see what happens but preparing ourselves in the weight you know i've heard it said like this that patients is a muscle that can only be developed in the way you see we ve got to wait well to develop patients we all patients we want to be strengthened the writer james says that like this see the farmer how he waits patiently for his crops to come up then it goes on to tell us how he waits it says he waits with
cheerful endurance with expectation he's what in looking for the signs the rain he's out there what his soil believe in its rich you a he doesn't go out there inside her no plan see the ground i wonder but still there have you ever thought like let me dig and make sure it still down there are also leaving happen and yet you see that's easy we all feel like that but he stayed excited about its crop even when he didn't see anything happening because it was just a matter of time that the earth would bring forth his harvest if he catches endurance and his strength and his patients please we should all white with that attitude shouldn't we when enjoying life more
no need to fill the struggle when we way we need to develop our patience knowing that at the right time guns gonna get us where we need to be we need to start enjoy in our life right now not looking so far into the future that we forget what's happening right now i was in the elevator with my daughter not long ago we were going up like the twenty fifth floor in this rise building elevator stopped doors open and a man walks in and work standing there and he looks at me and i smiled at him and he looks at me and asked the high he was gonna say somethin to me and he stopped for a second i could see him thinking and he said you're standing in this elevator i can't believe i'm saying you right now he's at all look into a friend of mine the other day and is that i was talking about how i've been way
for something for a long time and god help me i need you increased my patient so i can do both what i feel like he's call me to do anything you know love the ministry i getting caught from the ministry because i see you today is that i believe it's a sign thanks god has telling me it's we have been paying all gone it's just a matter of your that means doing he was doing the same thing that the farmer does he was looking for a sigh he was looking for the rain he was saying i need this cheerful hopeful endurance god gimme a sign give even there
next thing to give me to my next place strengthen me i'm waiting on you so that you'll renew my strength you see when we're strong we can endure guy says i want you to run and not get weary i don't want you to think i want you to be strong with this virtue patient so we don't need a birth anything before its time we ve gotta be ready for what god has in store for us and if we are going to bring forth the promises of god we're gonna happen develop patient patients is in a bad thing patients is a string it's a good thing jesus told five hundred disciples wait here in jerusalem because the holy spirit is going to come upon you
he's a don't wait wait right here do you know that only a hundred and fifty disciples of the five hundred didn't get impatient and leave the rest left there was only a hundred and twenty eight of the five hundred that stuck around here sometimes i think when it takes a long time we get bored we lose our enthusiasm we forget what we're waiting for we quit expect you see that day the ones stay got renewed recharged and reinstated energized by the holy fearing the holy spirit came in and suddenly did exactly what jesus said the holy spirit was gonna do habakkuk the profit to cod how does this you told me to write it down you told me to hold a clause but it's taken out
on time because you said here he said though it terry wait for it we're gonna tell me when wait for it me and sometimes you know how have you ever thought of that we're waiting you all you can see is long lines lots of traffic you're sitting in the doctor's office with everybody sitting there waiting but why do you stay in that chair because you know the nurse is going to come out she's going to call your name she's going to call your name that's what keeps you in that chair let me tell you something god it's gonna call your name it's four point why do you know what job is our job is to get ready for the appointed time because we don't want to birth anything before it time why won't take it into our own hands
that moses in how he led the israelites there were well equipped when they came out of egypt strong headed the promised land doesn't he opened the red see they saw amazing miracles they walk through on dry ground sewing credit even though they may have been fearful they look back and they watched the sea swallow up their enemies you think god did amazing things he said i'm take you too that place called the promised land stiff with me keep them then don't give up was they were in the desert moses said hey i'll be i'm going to see guy i'm to get our instructions for the next half of our so we went out to mount sign now and spoke with god but you know what the israelites did in the camp i lost sight of the promise of god
turn off side where they were going and what god was capable of doing you know what they said they said we don't know if moses he's even going to come back here in so long they were so impatient you know what they did they took the gold but god had given them but he had supplied for there and they threw it in the fire and they said we're gonna make our own god we're going to celebrate and worship that god they thought that god was going to make him happy he didn't he didn't make them happy at all in fact you know what they did they fell short of the best playing god had for their life we need to be prepared there's a appointed time what are you doing to get to that appointed time you see it's how we wait that's important god how we wait
can often times later how long we wait to see the waiting is what god is interested in is interested in what we're going to develop within us as we wait in fact i believe he's more interested in our development then what we're waiting because you guys got amazing things in your future higher he's brought you this far he's gonna take you all the way he's party i feel for you you saving their welfare and well call you got everything you need don't jump ahead a guy i know if he's brought you this far he's gone you all the way enjoy we are right now began to learn to wait well knowing that this patient endureth that you are your birthday is gonna bring forth promises given you a man think for listening to the jews dean podcast helpless
