Patience

“Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me; for Thou art the God of my salvation;

on Thee do I wait all the day.”

Psalm 25:5

“Patience is the fair handmaid and daughter of faith; we cheerfully wait when we are certain that we shall not wait in vain.  It is our duty and our privilege to wait upon the Lord in service, in worship, in expectancy, in trust, all the days of our life.  Our faith will be tried faith, and if it be of the true kind, it will bear continual trial without yielding.  We shall not grow weary of waiting upon God if we remember how long and how graciously He once waited for us.”

Charles Spurgeon

Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him, for He shields him all day long,

and the one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders.”

Deuteronomy 33:12

 “What is his purpose herein, he knoweth best who hath taken your soul in tutoring.  

Your faith may be bold charitable of Christ, that however matters go, the worst shall be a tired traveller, and a joyful and sweet welcome home:

the back of your winter night is broken.

 Look to the east-  the day sky is breaking;

think not that Christ loseth time or lingereth unsuitably.”

-Samuel Rutherford
