8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
Today while talking to a friend I told him all I want to do is work for God. He said I sounded impatient and that I may want to be careful because God may teach me a lesson on patience. I thought about it on the way home and he is right. We get so willing to say here I am Lord send me. We begin looking like the kid in class who keeps thier little hand up to answer every question. However, we forget to have patience and wait for God to call upon us. It is great to be ready, but we have to wait for our turn. We have to wait for God to tell us it is time to get to work. It is okay to wait for him to call upon you. Don’t get impatient thinking he forgot about you. If he has not given you a task then pray and prepare for when he does. Do not get to the point where God decides to teach you a lesson about patience.
