We know the fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Gal 5:22) We know that the Holy Spirit puts these fruits in us. We talk about the God of peace and the God of joy. But all these are aspects of God Himself. So He is also the God of patience and the God of self-control.
That’s a good thing to know when things get difficult. You can turn to the God of peace when you are harassed by fear. Turn to the God of self-control when you are facing temptation. You can address that part of God that you need in your life. It’s who He is. And because these are fruits of His Spirit in you, these are all yours as well.
Be active in embracing this fruit. It should be an outgrowth of your relationship with God. Don’t assume that because you believe in God that you will be filled with joy when you need it. You have to want it. That means allowing that aspect of God to be active when you need it to be.
I believe that there are many other parts of God that are fruits in the same way. Pursue them, and He will be more to you than you knew He could be.
