Patient Caution Part 2

In the Part 1 of this post I made it appear as though, as believers, we needed to pray to receive patience.  While, in fact, as believers, we already have been given patience through the Holy Spirit.  I mean, think about it, Galatians 5 tells us that the the fruit of the Spirit includes patience.  Acts 2, at Pentecost, we are shown that all believers receive the Holy Spirit and therefore receive all He has to offer.

I am so thankful for faithful friends who will help me see things like this in my writing, preaching, or even simply in conversation and will draw from the Word a point of correction.

With that being said, pray not that you would receive patience but instead that you will recall that you already have it and simply ask God to help you put into action what He has given you already.
