SCRIPTURE

James 5:7-12

OBSERVATION

- James talks about being patient until the Lord’s coming and then gives an example of patience
- Just as the farmer waits patiently for his crops, we should also wait patiently and stand firm until the Lord’s coming
- Don’t grumble against one another or we will be judged
- Now James talks about patience in the face of suffering
- He gives examples of people who were patient in the face of suffering like the prophets and Job and how they persevered
- The Lord is full of compassion and mercy
- Next James tells us not to swear. In this scripture he isn’t talking about offensive language. He’s talking about giving a simple yes and no

APPLICATION

The overall theme of these verses is patience and how we conduct ourselves while waiting. James encourages us to remember that Jesus is coming back and He will bring justice. He can be trusted to right all wrongs because His timing is perfect because He is full of compassion and mercy. In light of this, we have to be patient and persevere through whatever adversity comes our way and be careful not to grumble against each other. Whenever I am patient, it is usually because I have spent time with the Lord in prayer and His word, I have margin in my life and my focus is on Him. I realize that I need to be more consistent in these areas.

PRAYER

Lord I have heard it said that if we pray for patience that You will give us opportunities to be patient so we can grow. So I pray that You give me the grace in all situations, whether it be waiting or suffering. Help me to show grace to people in all areas of my life. In Jesus name.
