Patience Bible Verses
Put your hope in the LORD.
Travel steadily along his path.
He will honor you by giving you the land.
You will see the wicked destroyed.
I waited patiently for the LORD to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry.
Finishing is better than starting.
Patience is better than pride.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems
and trials, for we know that they help us develop
endurance. And endurance develops strength of
character, and character strengthens our confident
hope of salvation.
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good.
At just the right time we will reap a harvest of
blessing if we don’t give up.
We also pray that you will be strengthened with all
his glorious power so you will have all the endurance
and patience you need. May you be filled with joy,
always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to
share in the inheritance that belongs to his
people, who live in the light.
Then you will not become spiritually dull and
indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example
of those who are going to inherit God’s promises
because of their faith and endurance.
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any
kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for
great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested,
your endurance has a chance to grow. So let
it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed,
you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.
Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you
wait for the Lord’s return. Consider the farmers
who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in
the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest
to ripen. You, too, must be patient. Take courage,
for the coming of the Lord is near.
Because you have obeyed my command to persevere,
I will protect you from the great time of testing that will
come upon the whole world to test those who
belong to this world.
Because you have obeyed my command to
persevere, I will protect you from the great time of
testing that will come upon the whole world to test those
who belong to this world.
