I sat in church one day listening to a Pastor who was very much into striving to please God in His own strength. He made a statement that caught my attention " to get longsuffering you must suffer long". I was dwelling on this thought and on the walk home I felt as though God spoke to me in my spirit about this. Basically this is what I received: Longsuffering is a fruit of the Spirit and like all fruits of the Spirit they can only be developed one way- abiding in the Vine. I had a picture in my head of what happens as we abide in Christ. The Very life of God flows into this branch and it begans to grow, flower and produce fruit. Selah
