The Bible has much to stay about patience, and while it can be incredibly difficult to remain patient, we can trust that God knows all, is in all, and will work through all for His kingdom.
Here is a list of Bible verses that have helped me stay patient in difficult situations and remain obedient to God’s Word.
God has made it clear that those who are patient will be blessed, and I hope that these verses encourage you to stay steadfast in whatever season you’re currently in.
All verses are from the New American Standard Bible.
I know that You can do all things, And that no plan is impossible for You.
I waited patiently for the LORD; And He reached down to me and heard my cry.
Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
It is good that he waits silently for the salvation of the LORD.
For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hurries toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it delays, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay long.
So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
And He raised His eyes toward His disciples and began saying, “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when the people hate you, and when they exclude you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and jump for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For their fathers used to treat the prophets the same way.
2 Corinthians 4:16
Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer person is decaying, yet our inner person is being renewed day by day.
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work among you will complete it by the day of Christ Jesus.
Let’s not become discouraged in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not become weary.
