MFM Daily Devotional 14th December 2021 Mountain Top Life Outline

Longsuffering is the quality of being patient. It is the ability to cheerfully bear an unbearable situation and patiently endure. The natural man is impatient. The world is full of impatience, even in the house of God. All what people are looking for is microwave help, blessings and miracles.

They want everything snappily and are not ready to patiently wait on God for the appointed time. That is why you see people moving from one church to the other because they believe God is not answering their request as fast as they want. Many of such wandering Christians often find themselves in the trap of satan. Many have turned God to a fire brigade officer. Their slogan is “Now! Now!”

Patient people will display endurance and perseverance. Longsuffering will make you to be patient in the face of serious challenges. It is a quality of God. He patiently waits for the lost to come to Him. 2 Peter 3:9 says God is not slack concerning His promise. He may have seemed slow but, beloved, God is not slow but waiting for the sinners to come to repentance.

No one is ever going to be perfect here on earth; so we must accept and love people in spite of their faults. Be patient and be gentle with others. Is there anyone whose action really annoys you? Be patient with such (Eph. 4:2). Is there anything you have been praying to God about? Be patient; He will surely answer you at the right time. Though it may seems delayed, but note that delay is never a denial.

In addition, longsuffering will give you good health and help you to achieve your life goals. However, you may not be able to fully live a life of long suffering all by yourself; you need the help of the Holy Spirit.

Longsuffering is an exercise in self-control. Tell the Holy Spirit to give you this wonderful fruit.

Motivational Quote

Prophetic Word
You shall not run ahead of God in the race of your destiny, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: Come, Holy Ghost, Our Hearts Inspire

1. Come, Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire,
Let us Thine influ’nce prove;
Source of the old prophetic fire,
Fountain of light and love.

2. Come, Holy Ghost, for, mov’d by Thee,
The prophets wrote and spoke;
Unlock the truth, Thyself the Key,
Unseal the sacred book.

3. Expand Thy wings, celestial Dove,
Brood o’er our nature’s night;
On our disorder’d spirits move,
And let there now be light.

4. God, thro’ Himself, we then shall know,
If Thou within us shine;
And sound, with all Thy saints below,
The depths of love divine.
