Bible Verses for When You are Impatient
(Reference material: God’s Promises to You)
Trust in the LORD and do good;
live in the land and be safe.
Seek your happiness in the LORD,
and he will give you your heart’s desire.
Give yourself to the LORD;
trust in him, and he will help you;
he will make your righteousness shine like the noonday sun.
Be patient and wait for the LORD to act;
don’t be worried about those who prosper
or those who succeed in their evil plans.
Don’t give in to worry or anger;
it only leads to trouble.
Those who trust in the LORD will possess the land,
but the wicked will be driven out.
Psalm 37:3-9, Good News Translation (GNT)
Be patient, then, my friends, until the Lord comes. See how patient farmers are as they wait for their land to produce precious crops. They wait patiently for the autumn and spring rains. You also must be patient. Keep your hopes high, for the day of the Lord’s coming is near.
Do not complain against one another, my friends, so that God will not judge you. The Judge is near, ready to appear. My friends, remember the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. Take them as examples of patient endurance under suffering. We call them happy because they endured. You have heard of Job’s patience, and you know how the Lord provided for him in the end. For the Lord is full of mercy and compassion.
James 5:7-11, Good News Translation (GNT)
Dear God, my Heavenly Father, I am filled with joy for I know that I can trust and depend on You. Your faithfulness fills me with hope and Your loving heart inspires me to pursue patience. I would like to humbly present all my worries and concerns to You. As I continue growing and learning more about You and Your Word – the Bible, may my heart be purified and molded to learn how to wait on You alone, dear Lord.
