THE POWER OF DETERMINATION by Joyce Meyer
Walking in obedience to God is not too difficult because He has given His Spirit to work in us powerfully and to help us in all He has asked of us. He is in us and with us all the time to enable us to do what we cannot do, and to do with ease what would be hard without Him. Patience is a fruit of the Holy Spirit that manifests itself in a calm, positive attitude despite our life circumstances. Don’t think you can solve all your problems or overcome difficulties on your own. As we humble ourselves under God’s mighty hand, we begin to die to our own way and our own timing and to become alive to God’s will and way for us. Character development takes time and patience.
