This collection of Bible verses about patience is designed to focus your thoughts on God's Word as you learn to wait on the Lord. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

These verses make it clear that you should be patient with everyone. These verses say to avoid being angry or enraged and use patience when confronted by situations that might provoke you. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper—it only leads to harm.
For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land. While it would be a relief that you could be patient in one situation and that would be all that is needed, the Bible shows that patience will be needed throughout life. Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus.

God told Abraham and Sarah that He would give them a child.
You Will Not Be Ashamed
I think Abraham and Sarah thought they had a big part to play in that miracle, but really all God needed them to do was trust Him. God will do impossible things for us when we choose to believe in him. Just like Abraham and Sarah, we can wrestle with how God will do something and talk ourselves out of trusting him completely. That is why He tells us not to lean on our own understanding and reminds us that His ways are higher than ours.
Whatever we are waiting for, it is God who will cause it to happen so it should be Him who we put our hope in. When we put our hope in our ability to make a situation come to pass we set ourselves up for disappointment. That disappointment can eat away at our faith so we should make sure we put our hope in something immovable. God will be faithful to us forever.
2. Read Truth
He will never leave us or turn his back on us. We can have confident hope that his plans for us are good. If we put our hope in truths like these we will never be disappointed. It is so easy to doubt what God has said when a little time has passed from when he spoke it.
Waiting On God — Hope for the Broken-Hearted
Sometimes God speaks to us to give us the courage to go. Other times He speaks so that when situations look dark we can hold on to what He said in the beginning. God spoke through the prophet Isaiah to foretell the coming of Jesus, who was to save the people of Israel and the rest of us. In hindsight, we can clearly see the correlation between things Isaiah said and the life that Jesus lived.
However, there were many points where the Israelites would have wondered if this Messiah was actually coming. Why would God tell Abraham about a child so long before the child was to be born?
Waiting on God
Why would God keep us waiting for the things we desire the most? He does it to fortify our trust in Him as He proves himself faithful. Jesus often spoke about how what He was doing fulfilled the prophecies written in Scripture.
In all Jesus did He reminded the Jews that once again their God had been faithful to them and had done exactly what He said He would do. God is constantly reminding us to trust in Him alone. He wants to lead us into a deeper relationship with Him by teaching us how to trust Him wholeheartedly. Yes, it may be long. If He has said that something will come to pass in our life then we can be assured that He will bring it to pass, in our lives.
