Paul said in 2 Tim 3:10-11 that patience was part of his doctrine as a manner of life in Christ. In Hebrews 6:12 he said that we were not to be slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Patience along with your faith is a part of the process of receiving from God. In the book of James 1:3-4 we are told to “let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” Patience is not waiting with passivity with the kind of thinking “How long do I have to wait”, no patience is your friend. Something is actually happening that is conforming us to the image of Christ, completing within us what is lacking. The benefit of this process is that this kind of change stays with us the rest of our lives as we become the truth the Holy Spirit reveals to us. I believe this teaching will help you in allowing the Holy Spirit to give you what is lacking in receiving the promise you are believing for.
