Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 4 May 2022 By Dr. D.K Olukoya ~ Longsuffering: A Component Of The Fruit Of The Spirit (I)

TOPIC: Longsuffering: A Component Of The Fruit Of The Spirit (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 4 May 2022)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Judges 1, Judges 2:1-5, John 4:1-26, Proverbs 11:9-18

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Romans 5:1-5 (KJV)

1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

MEMORY VERSE: “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” – 1 Peter 5:10

When you can suffer long with God on your side, you are confident to come forth a better person than when you started.

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.

MFM Devotional For Today MESSAGE:

Longsuffering is a component of the Fruit of the Spirit, according to Galatians 5:22-23. Although the list may not particularly be in order of importance, yet the first on the list being love, according to many verses of Scriptures is all encompassing (Romans 13:10b).

All of these nine components stand alone, yet none can operate fully without the other. The same goes for longsuffering, which is self explanatory — the kind of suffering that is long, enduring, and almost indefinite. It means the godly virtue that works continually within the life of an individual until it achieves the rightful purpose. Some versions of the Bible defines it as, “forbearance or patience”. It works hand in hand with endurance and perseverance until the expected godly character is manifested.

Psalm 34:19 tells us of the many afflictions of the righteous, just like Job. But thank God, who delivered him from them all. The question that easily comes to mind is, “Why should Christians suffer? Should God look away or fold His hands when His children suffer? The Bible makes us realise that all those who will live righteously in Christ must go through persecution (2 Timothy 3:12).

In the Bible, we see godly men and women suffering for righteousness sake. However, while waiting on the Lord according to His promises, these people eventually came to a glorified end, which is the divine purpose of longsuffering in the life of a believer.

Job was a man that went through so much pain and suffering but instead of “cursing God” as his wife suggested, he patiently waited on His Redeemer and his end was greater than his beginning. Abraham endured the long waiting period and received the promise of God (Romans 4:17).

As interesting as Joseph’s story is, nobody will pray to experience the same. Yet he waited patiently for the promise of God and His righteousness, and went from prison to palace. The same goes for David, a man that went from cave to cave, seeking refuge from King Saul, who was bent on killing him for no just cause. He waited patiently, enduring the pain, yet made it to the throne as king over God’s people, even with an everlasting promise.
