We are stretched every day with more work, more world problems, more family struggles, and more anxieties. It's easy to quickly become impatient and let our emotions get the best of us. Instead of turning to your own abilities, turning to the power of God can help you have patience in any circumstance. The Bible teaches us not only the importance of patience but the reward of it!
Here are some of our favorite Bible verses about patience. There are many beautiful Scriptures that we can look to for encouragement and comfort when dealing with difficult times. We are called by the Word of God to have patience as we trust in God's plan. Learn the importance of perseverance and how we become less anxious by reading these relevant scripture quotes about patience.
"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." (Ephesians 4:2)
May these Bible verses calm and ease your heart and mind! Let's use this Prayer for Patience as we read God's Word: God, teach us what it means to have faith in silence. When we face trials that are beyond our understanding, help us to find peace. Help me be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. You set all things in accordance with your time. Remind us to wait patiently, and find peace in your plan. Amen. (by Dick Woodward)
7 Be still before the Lordand wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. 8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret-it leads only to evil. 9 For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
6 You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you. 7 Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. 8 You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near.
