You may not always understand, child, but I have your best interest at heart. Think back to all those times when you prayed and prayed for something. At times I answered with yes. Occasionally I said no. And a few prayers remain yet unanswered.
I know what lies ahead for you. I have guided you toward certain decisions and warned you against others, for your benefit. I did the same for my people Israel-warning them about the consequences of selecting a king. Still, they demanded one on their terms. And my people were never the same.
Though you are pone to push ahead and ignore my warnings, I will continue to respond "yes," "no," or "not yet" out of love for you. When you trust me with the answers, I will rejoice with you in your successes. And when you fail to heed me, I will grieve with you, and then urge you to keep moving forward, never forgetting the lessons you've learned.
The people refused to listen to Samuel. "No!" they said. "We want a king over us." 1 Samuel 8:19 (NIV)

God wants his followers to be holy like his son. No one will ever be, but we should try to be like him and the charactersics he had. One of them were patient.
