'For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for
what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that
we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.' (Romans 8:24-25)
What is Biblical patience? Patience may be seen as the ability
to cheerfully and hopefully wait and endure—without complaint—
whatever befalls us.
Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for
him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way,
because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. (Psalm
And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my
expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is
my defence; I shall not be moved. (Psalm 62:5-6)
I sink in
deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters,
where the floods overflow me. I am weary of my crying: my throat is
dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God. (Psalm 69:2-3)
This booklet is chock full of Scriptures which we need to hold
tightly to our hearts as we trudge through this most wicked time in
all of history.
Behold, we count them happy which endure.
One key I have discovered is to live every day
actively contesting for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and being
concerned for their soul; if we are more concerned of others, we
shall be less burdened down by the sin of today.
