PATIENCE–MY FRIEND–PATIENCE

Posted by | Life Blogs | No Comments

Patience is a problem for most of us and is hard to acquire. It is a learned attribute and is not something that happens quickly. It is a virtue. I have said, and maybe you have also, that I want patience and I want it now!! Today I want to share a few verses from God’s word about patience.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.

Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.

Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the door. As an example of suffering and patience, brothers, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. Behold, we consider those blessed who remained steadfast. You have heard of the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,

So that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.

And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Romans 8:25

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

God has patience with us. Shouldn’t we have patience with Him as well as others?

SMILE God loves YOU!! Have a good day all.
