Patience is paramount.
When a hypocrite crosses your path, God is hoping you respond to him without hypocrisy. When a heretic enters the fold, Holy Angels keep records of your own heresy—whether your actions prove your belief that God is sovereign and stronger. When someone tries to harm your love ones—or your country—Jesus is there as the King of Kings, watching to see whether you will respond within his golden rule.
When trouble crosses your path, do you enjoy God’s method of giving you endurance enough to scale mountains or do you rebuke Him for it?
