Be Patient With Yourself

“It is a faithful saying, and worthy of acceptance by everyone, that Christ Jesus came into this world to bring salvation to sinners, among whom I am first. But it was for this reason that I obtained mercy, so that in me as first, Christ Jesus would display all patience, for the instruction of those who would believe in Him unto eternal life.”

1 Timothy 1:15-16

Thank God for His patience and for helping you to be patient with yourself.

Think about the times when God has been patient with you. In 2 Peter 3:15, the Bible says, “Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation.”  God is patient with you not just in the area of salvation, but in every area of your life. He won’t give up on you, even when you make mistakes. You need to be a patient with yourself as God is with you. Instead of becoming frustrated, you should keep trying to do what is right before God, even when you fail, so you can become more like Jesus every day.
