Sermon: Worth the Wait Print
Sunday, 23 October 2011 21:15

Preachers are weary of lack of fruits in their churches. Mothers are tired of praying for the salvation of their children. Missionaries are quitting due to small progress in their work. Soulwinners are discouraged of lost sinners slamming the doors on their faces. Overall, today's Christians cannot see any blessing on high and are sick of waiting on the Lord. Look at the life of Joseph. One word that he kept in mind and applied in his life was patience. If God does not do anything for the next five, ten, twenty, or thirty years, we need to continue to trust in Him and faithfully serve Him no matter the cost. It is not easy, but fruit does not come until one labors diligently with patience. An impatient person is one who wants the tribulations finished quickly and that is not how our Father works. He wants to bless the efforts of an individual, just like Joseph, who deals with the struggles with great patience.  If you want to be successful in the end of your life, every Christian needs the ability to wait on God no matter how long it takes.  Trust Him.  It will truly be worth the wait in the end.  Joseph can tell you that for certain.  After all, he went through years of slavery and prison and became the second most powerful ruler in Egypt at the end.


Genesis 37:2; 41:46
These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report. And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.
