One of the keys to unlocking your potential is patient faith. A person of faith must also be a person of patience. Faith to believe God for it, patience to follow through the process and journey. You must be so persuaded within yourself that every single day, you set out to work towards your goals even if there are no visible results at the moment. You have to believe that one day; someday, you can become powerful enough, rich enough or knowledgeable enough to solve the social and economic problems you cannot stop thinking about.
“So that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” (Hebrews 6:12 ESV)
This verse from the Bible offers life changing advice packed in a few words. If you are having faith that God can use you to accomplish something extraordinary, you ought to pay attention. You are admonished here to never allow your heart to give up. Never lose your enthusiasm and confidence that you will win. Follow the example of those who fully received what God has promised because of their strong faith and patience.
There are countless examples of people to draw inspiration from as you embark on your life’s journey. And it is your job to find them out. It does not matter what you are trying to accomplish, it has been done before. God has performed those same miracles through others before and you have to find out how they got it done so that you can learn. If you have not yet identified between three to seven “heroes of faith” with a similar mission to yours, you need to sit up. You should study biblical characters and also read biographies of people who worked social and economic miracles in their days. You will observe a common thread of patient faith.
