God does not lose patience, but He won't accept 50%.
We want it to be our standard.
Give Me your all.
Soething wonderful about getting that yield.
We can't have a good relationship with someone if there's no trust.
God wants to trust you.
If you can give me everything you'll be amazed at what I have for you.
16 "that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the [a]saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:16-19
God desperately wants us to know what 10% is. Don't take half steps.

"A ruler questioned Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 19 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. 20 You know the commandments, ‘Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.’” 21 And he said, “All these things I have kept from my youth.” 22 When Jesus heard this, He said to him, “One thing you still lack; sell all that you possess and distribute it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” 23 But when he had heard these things, he became very sad, for he was extremely rich." Luke 18:18-23
His secret was the one part of his life he wouldn't let go of -- his wealth.
Let go of the secret things.
"But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. 3 Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have [a]whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops." Luke 12:2-3
He is an all or nothing God.
Either you're for Me or against Me.
God knows our secret things.Jeremiah 23:24
God won't accept secrets in our lives.

There is no way I can give as much as Jesus gave.
"Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 [a]fixing our eyes on Jesus, the [b]author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:1-2
If you've separated come back.
Run the race with perseverance. Finish it.
Don't shortcut on God. He won't shortcut on us.
If you yield and give 100% you will know peace and safety and the love of God.
Give up whatever you need to give up.
