Superb work again Derek. I loved the conclusion about waiting on God. It reminds me of a lady who was swimming the English Channel in a dense fog when she finally gave up. When she got into the boat, she could see the shore thru the dense fog and thought, if only I had known and waited a few more hundred yards. I need to add patience to my Christian walk so much brother. Thank you for this teaching and as always, I learn something from you brother.

Thank you Jack! I learned a whole lot about patience the past 2 years and I am still learning a lot about it. God is planning something for me right now, but He is also asking me to wait on His timing. It has been difficult for me, but I know that HE knows what is best for me. So, I will keep waiting. I liked your story about the woman swimming the English Channel. It fits perfectly! Thank you as always for your kindness and encouragement Jack. It really means a lot to me. God bless you brother!

Praise the Lord. I read this article the other day and it was exactly what I needed. I am a christian and I’ve been confined to a wheelchair for 14 years. But the Lord has always been with me and he led me safely through many difficult phases in my life. But lately I’ve been experiencing a spiritual crisis. I felt that the Lord had abandoned me. It felt like He had stopped listening to my prayers. For weeks I’ve been pretty depressed. But then I accidentally stumbled into this article and it was as if our Lord Jesus Christ was speaking to me through it. Your message once again reminded me of the importance of being patient and to wait for the time of the Lord because He is neither late nor early. His time is always perfect. The examples you sited from the Holy Bible were very good too. Compared to Job my difficulties are quiet insignificant. So thank you, brother, for the message because it definitely helped me a lot. May God bless you.

Thank you for such kind words Dani. I’m so happy that you heard God’s voice through reading this. I like what you said about Job. I often think about Job when things are hard for me. You are right, our difficulties don’t compare to what happened to him. God bless you!

Thanks for your work. Sometimes I forget that God uses the testing of our faith to bring us to a place of patience (James 1:2). It is a choice we need to make. God Bless!

Derek Hill April 9, 2013 at 3:03 pm

Amen Crystal. It is a choice. When trials come now, I always ask God “what do You want me to learn from this”? I know He has plenty to teach me and i don’t want to miss out on it. God bless!

Thank you Derek Hill. Great article. Now i know what to do. Patience has been with me now for 3 years as a born again Christian. But it’s been wearing thin. How Jesus fasted for 40 days always fascinated me. I’ve had to make a decision about sex before marriage as i’m not married yet. Thank you Jack Wellman for the articles & scriptures about sex before marriage. As a 35 year old who talked about it last week with an ex-girlfriend it was getting to me. Considering doing it. But now i got the advice that i need. Thank you Dani. My 3 years is nothing compared to your 14 years. Just like it can’t be compared to the story of what Job had to endure. Thank you all. All praises to God. God bless.

Thank you Kenneth for your inspiring words! I’m so glad you have found real truth in the articles here. Stay strong and don’t give the devil a foot-hold on you. God will always provide a way out of temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13) God bless you!

Thanks to all for your inputs and meaningful insights.
Personally,l find this subject quite striking and fascinating as l find myself in the similar similar situation,where l gave up my job because of some work pressure with the hope to secure another post l had been promised elsewhere,but the time frame has since gone and my patience is growing thin by the day.But after reading this passage l know can accept that,only God know when that door will open!
Stay Blessed,

Derek Hill April 13, 2013 at 9:36 am

Amen Frank! Your comment reminded me of what Jesus said in Matthew 6:25-34. It is a passage that shows us to not be anxious about what we will eat, drink or clothe ourselves with. God will always provide! Stay strong in His promises Frank and He will provide for you. God bless you!

i see sayings and wonder if they came from the Bible , on (Bible or Not ) they discuss the phrase ” Patients is Virtue ” and even though not exactly said in the Bible it is implied , and they try to reason it could have came from 2 other sources , but at last couldn’t find it to say just this exact phrase , thought you may want to read about it , it uses many of the scriptures you used ………
