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.
Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.
A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
To end our jealousy verses…
Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
