Therefore, brothers and sisters, be patient until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth and is patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, because the Lord’s coming is near.
James 5:7-8 (CSB)
The time it takes for a seed to grow into a plant that eventually bears good fruit requires patience many of us haven’t cultivated. We live in a right-here-right-now kind of world, and if we don’t get results quickly enough, we’re often too discouraged to keep going or give up altogether for a different route.
But our faith is matured in the tension of waiting, in the stretched out time of longing. Maybe you’re feeling like you’re at the end of your rope and are needing to hear this word today: Just hold on. He’s coming.
It’s not far off, and God is true to His Word that Christ will come again soon. He will make all things will be made right, and you will be able to finally rest completely and wholly. We don’t know when that will be exactly, but in the meantime, hold on and He will strengthen you to do so.
Just hold on. He’s coming soon, He’s coming soon.
