A word I have always had a problem with! Patience.
Consider One who is greater than all having to wait. Hebrews 9, speaking of Christ says~
"But this Man (Christ) after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God - from now on expecting til His enemies be made His footstool- for by one offering He has perfected forever those that are sanctified (set apart)."
At the set time the expectation occurs. At the set time, our requests are answered. We are given great and precious promises by the Father. He is able to do exceeding, abundantly above all that we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).
In 1 Timothy, Paul admonishs that we follow after these things; righteousness, godliness,faith, love, patience, meekness. (6:11)
We must keep His commandment without spot and unrebukeable until the appearing of our LORD Jesus Christ; who in His times He shall show who is the Blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords. (1 Timothy 6:14,15).
And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us; this is the LORD; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation! (Isaiah 25:9)
It is worth the wait! Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!
