What is patience according to the Bible?
All over the Bible there are stories of men and women experiencing trials and tribulations. Some grumbled against God because of lack of water (Exodus 15:24), others worshipped God in trials and adversity (Job 1:20), others cried out to God in despair (Psalm 18:6). According to Scripture, PATIENCE is a virtue and a fruit of the Spirit, a sign of someone who trusts in God. According to 1 Samuel “lack of patience can cause you to miss blessings.”
1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
Ephesians 4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
PSALM 7:7-9 7 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. 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.
