I know what comes to mind when you hear about faith is power, authority and visible mighty exploits – pulling down mountains, raising valleys, healing the sick, raising the dead, bringing down every opposition against God and casting away devils.
However, faith isn’t all about visible actions; faith also knows to wait until what was received invisibly becomes realised visibly.
Faith is thunderous and can call down fire from heaven, but Faith is also the inner peace that fixes your heart on God even when tears well up your eyes.
Faith is praying for the healing of others while you go home believing God for the pains in your limbs.
Sometimes, faith is loud that it pulls down the wall of Jericho, but at other times you can hardly hear its voice as she receives the spies with peace.
Faith is not always about thrusting an arrow through the giant’s heart; it is also about trusting in God when the giant is eating you up from within.
Faith is going to mount Carmel to confront the false prophets, but it’s also waiting for decades for Isaac.
Sometimes, faith is daring, facing thousands of soldiers with only three hundred men, but at other times it’s patient, building an ark for years while waiting for an invisible hand to send down rain.
Faith can mean dashing out courageously to fight the traitor, but it is also being patient in the lion’s den until morning.
Faith is walking majestically to the throne of Egypt, but faith is also patiently serving a prison term for refusing sweet sin against God.
Faith is possessing the ability to interpret the dreams of others while unable to understand your own dreams completely.
Sometimes, faith is having your child within nine months of promise, but faith sometimes is saddling back to the same prophet with the dead child while saying, “it is well.”
The patience of faith comes from understanding what God has said concerning you.
The patience of faith is an offshoot of absolute trust in the One who gave the promise.
The patience of faith is evidence received spiritually, awaiting manifestation physically.
The patience of faith is a loud statement to satan that he has lost the battle, although he might seem to be winning in the meantime.
The patience of faith is fearless of visible threats, having seen Him who is invisible but real.
The patience of faith believes that you are highly favoured even when all around you speak otherwise.
The patience of faith is trusting, believing, waiting, I say, on The LORD.
I know you want the power to move mountains.
I know you desire faith to scale over obstacles.
I know you want to exercise the faith of Jesus in healing and deliverance.
But if God says, “wait, my strength is made perfect in your patience”, will He still find faith in you?
You need the patience of faith.
