As I mature spiritually, rarely at a consistent rate, I find myself responding to God’s answers to my prayers in one of two ways.

The first, occurring mainly during seasons of great mercy when God seems to be flooding my life with answered prayers, is an overwhelming sense that I am undeserving of such work on God’s part.

And secondly, I find myself increasingly content and trusting of God when his answer is, “patience my son.”

You will make your prayer to him, and be answered;
