A hindrance is something that prevents us from being obedient to God’s commands.


James 5:7, “Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.”


  1. BE PATIENT: Patience means, “to bravely endure times of waiting.” The good farmer cannot become impatient with the seeds he planted; he must bravely endure the time of waiting because if he tries to gather his crops too early he will lose his harvest.
  2. THE LORD IS COMING: Just like how we are patiently waiting for the second coming of Jesus, we must be like the farmer and patiently wait for our financial harvest.
  3. VALUABLE CROP: Remember as surely as good seed, in good ground, with good weather under the care of a good farmer will produce a good harvest- our good God will reward our good seed with a good harvest if we bravely endure the times of waiting!


Be patient in waiting for God to bless you.


  1. Be faithful in giving your tithes (10% of your total income) and offerings (anything you give after your tithes).
  2. Repent if you have become impatient with God.
  3. Ask God to teach you how to be patient!


By the power of the Holy Spirit and the guidance of the Word of God I will not be hindered by “greed,” “laziness,” “unbelief,” “discouragement,” or “fatigue” in my giving to God. I will overcome “bitterness,” “impatience,” “pride,” “fear,” “idolatry,” and live a life of obedience in my finances.
