Bible study notes from July 19, 2017

James 1:4 KJV

But let patience have her perfect work, that he may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. 

We're worried about the wrong thing

We hear this scripture and immediately get happy of of the "perfect and entire, wanting nothing"

 - proclaim it and run and shout everywhere

 -miss the beginning completely

Patience is the process

 - not just what you go through, but how you go through

 - " Patience have her perfect WORK"

 - WORK is the key word

We have no patience 

Major changes (jobs, relationships/marriage, etc.)

 - we know the outcome an should to the outcome

 - hate the process 

   * impatient

   * try to force things to happen

Trying to castor oil ourselves into premature labor

 - (old school/old wives tale oral remedy to induce labor)

Seek the face of God

He's always speaking loudly and consistently

 -INSTRUCTION - direction, order, or decree

 - CONFIRMATION - verification, proof, testimony

 - AFFIRMATION - declaration, proclamation, assertion

Instruction- let patience have her perfect work

Confirmation- that he may be perfect 

Affirmation- perfect and entire, wanting nothing

He'll give you the what, why, how, when, where 

We're getting tired and wearing ourselves thin simply because we aren't listening

 - trying to do it on our own

   *got news Tuesday, and trying to make things work so hard that by Friday, I was burnt out, on the verge of tears exhausted

Perfect and entire is strategic 

 - not haphazard or coincidence




In doing so, you'll get your perfect end
