Call to repentance Day 6

Longsuffering, merciful and forgiving are characteristics of our God.  Longsuffering means patience.  patience means being able to accept or tolerate delays, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.  patience is something that many of us lack today. That’s why God said let patience have its perfect work (James 1:4). Patience has a job to do if you will allow it. Through testing and trials our patience is giving an opportunity to work.  But our God shows us how patient he is with us with how we test him all the time.  Did you realize that while in the wilderness  the children of Israel tested God 10 times?(Numbers 14:22). It was obvious that he got tired of the people rejecting him and wanted to strick them with pestilence (diseases) and disinherit them (numbers 14:12) But Moses reminded him of these things, “The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving (numbers 14:18).  Think about all the things you have been through and ask yourself, “Has God been patient with me?”
