Bible Verses on Patience

In our fast-paced world patience is not a quality that many display. If you’re around those who don’t like to wait, it can affect your patience as well. There is spiritual patience for the believer, and it is a spiritual force that can carry you through hard times. It has been defined as faith in waiting. The following scriptures will help when you need patience.
