Be patient. Things take time. Acts 24 SOAP

Posted By Amy On January 26, 2012 @ 9:43 am In Acts in 28 Days | 3 Comments

[2]Today’s reading is Acts 24. I’m glad to be back posting again. :)

And I guess today’s SOAP is just a reminder to be patient with myself on that front, too.

Scripture: Acts 24:27

When two years had passed, Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus, but because Felix wanted to grant favor to the Jews, he left Paul in prison.

Observation:

TWO YEARS! Paul sat and waited for TWO YEARS and then some! In that time he shared his story and Jesus’ story.

Application:

I can be impatient at times. I want things to happen without waiting. I want to see change.

TWO YEARS really grabbed me.

If Paul can be patient sitting in prison, I can be more patient when it comes to my requests.

Change will happen in His time. And, to be honest, I can see it when I really stop and look.

I need to be patient… with others and also with myself… while still working toward the goals.

Prayer:

Lord, thank you for this reminder.

I will try harder to be more patient. I will remember those TWO YEARS. I will try to remember eternity.

Thank you.
