Let’s be honest, there's no one who doesn’t think they could use some growth in the area of patience. Being tested in the area of patience is no fun, yet it is one of the most sought-after characteristics God longs to see in His children. Why? Patience demands sacrifice, and sacrifice demands trust. The ability to walk in faith as we wait on God demonstrates a God-fearing respect, surrender, and trust that He is good and He will provide. When we patiently wait, we honor and praise Him as we choose to rest in His timing, His plan, and His promises that He will provide.
