The Unbelief of Impatience–Isaiah 30.1-5

by Max Andrews

The following is an outline from a lesson I delivered in a Bible study group.

Question:  Have you ever doubted God?  When God says He will do something, have you ever denied that He would do it?

Impatience is unbelief

  • It rises in your heart when you begin to doubt God’s timing
  • When you doubt the wisdom of His guidance
  • It springs up when the road to success gets muddy or a tree falls across and blocks it from where you thought you would be and when you thought you would be there

 There’s a difference between impatience and desire

  • God doesn’t want us to be impatient
  • God wants us to desire Him
    • Not to be apathetic
    • It’s OK to desire something, be patient
