To everything there is a season,
And a time to every purpose under heaven...
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run and not be weary,
and shall walk and not faint.
Beloved, do not think it strange
concerning the fiery trial which is to try you,
as though some strange thing happened to you;
but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's
that when His glory is revealed
you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
1 Peter 4:12-13
...we glory in our tribulations
knowing that tribulation worketh
and patience, experience; and experience,
and hope maketh not ashamed;
because the love of God
is shed abroad in our hearts
by the Holy Ghost which is
given unto us.
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord,
beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation
wherewith ye are called,
with all lowliness and meekness,
with longsuffering, forbearing
one another in love;
endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit
in the bond of peace.
...the trying of your faith worketh patience.
But let patience have her perfect
that ye may be perfect and entire,
James 1:3 & 4
...But my God shall supply all of your
according to His riches in glory by Christ
...Rejoicing in hope; patient
continuing instant in prayer.
...For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults,
ye shall take it patiently?
But if, when ye do well, and suffer for it,
ye take it patiently, this is acceptable
1 Peter 2:20
...for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound;
everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full
and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
I can do all things through Christ
which strengtheneth me.
...but the God of all grace
who hath called us unto His eternal
glory by Christ
after that ye have suffered awhile,
make you perfect, stablish, strengthen,
1 Peter 5:10
In your patience possess ye your souls.
