In our microwave, instant-messaging, drive-through-window, cell-phone world, one thing many of us are not great at is patience. More succinctly: we hate to wait. We want what we want and we want it yesterday! When going through tribulations, we naturally want our trials to quickly be over and done. But let us learn to go through whatever’s before us (the good and bad) with joy, knowing that what the enemy may have intended for evil, God can and will use for our good. Glory in the wait - with the knowledge that, in the end, something good will come. Out of patience comes experience. And once experience is gained, we then have hope; we have history. And that means the next time tribulation rears its head, we won’t worry because we know what God can do! (3, p.1359)
