The Hardship of Patience

Patience is one of the hardest things in life. Waiting, trusting in God, its hard. Faithfully waiting on the Lord? It can be the most trying time of your life.

There are times when we are called to wait on the Lord. There is nothing else to do. When it's something important, its nearly impossible to wait.

But God has promised to not forget those who wait on Him. While you are waiting, dwell on His promises!

"But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience." Romans 8:25

"So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God's will. Then you will receive all that He has promised." Hebrews 10:35,36

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." Philippians 4:6

"You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand." James 5:8

"And thus Abraham, having patiently waited, obtained the promise." Hebrews 6:15

God would not repeat this promise if He didn't know that we would struggle with this, He often uses patience as refining fire to teach us.

"And endurance produces character, and character produces hope." Romans 5:4

Wait a little more. His Promises are coming!
