The Christian walk, what a journey! It is a journey of joy, excitement, surprises, dangers, and it requires patience.
Help, Lord, I’m Not Perfect Yet speaks to how we haven’t arrived at our sinless state. We all have imperfections, sins, and faults that seem to take over our life, and we can’t figure out how to overcome them.
We all get confused sometimes in our life, and we don’t know what is going on. Did you know that many Bible characters suffered from these same things? Hang in there, God has not given up on you. He knows you intimately, and he wants to help you. Jesus and the Father have the answers you’re looking for. Patience is the key in keeping yourself and your relationship with the Lord intact. Be patient with yourself, and the victory over your own sins and faults will come. How is patience involved in a believer’s walk? We need patience for the things in the world (family responsibility, work, and daily living), but, most importantly, to deal with our own bad habits, addictions, and shortcomings. We also need patience with understanding God’s Word and how to apply it to our life. This takes years to develop and is not an overnight transformation.
