 I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.

- Jeremiah 17:10 

My dear friend Errol sent me the above scripture via email without a subject line to forewarn me! ...And so the power of the scripture hit me full in the face!

Just a couple of days ago, he had asked me the following:

'Why does a man who has decided to fast 40 days, patiently keeps his fast each day to the second but, on any other day, when he comes home famished, loses his patience if his wife has delayed in cooking his meal?'

(Probably, that hour would have counted as a more acceptable sacrifice than the 40 days of fasting!)

    Hi Bro Joe

    I liked your last blog, but I would have liked it even more if you gave your readers some suggested ideas as to why people are able to be so patient when they are under the Religious Spirit and utterly impatient when they are being themselves.

    I would like to draw your attention to the preceding verse which really gives the answer:

    "The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Who can know it?" Jerem.17:9

    This is why the Lord when He came down for ministry on earth, did not commit Himself too much to men. Please read John 2:24-25.

    God bless!
