I think one of the issues many of us struggle with is patience. I know that at many times I want it now! And I found an example of how the Holy Spirit can work in our lives when I saw Paul’s response to King Agrippa:
Acts 26: 28 Then Agrippa said to Paul, “Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?” 29 Paul replied, “Short time or long—I pray to God that not only you but all who are listening to me today may become what I am, except for these chains.”
Did you note – that “time” had no impact on Paul’s desire – he was dedicated to his mission, regardless of the time it took.
