“And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.”
Isaiah 30:18 KJV
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him. Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation.
Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain? or can the heavens give showers? Art not thou he, O LORD our God? therefore we will wait upon thee: for thou hast made all these things.
Jeremiah 14:22 KJV
We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
1 Thessalonians 1:2-4 KJV
We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;
so that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:
2 Thessalonians 1:3-4 KJV
In your patience possess ye your souls.
Luke 21:19 KJV
