Patience (Part 2)

Note again Proverbs 16:1,3,9 and consider this with Proverbs 20:24

We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer…Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed… We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. Proverbs 16:1,3,9 (NLT)

The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?Proverbs 20:24 (NLT)

So why try to control outcomes?

When your heart overflows with understanding you’ll be very slow to get angry. But if you have a quick temper, your impatience will be quickly seen by all.Proverbs 14:29 (TPT)

People with understanding control their anger; a hot temper shows great foolishness.Proverbs 14:29 (NLT)

Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13:4 that love is patient!

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud.1 Corinthians 13:4 (NLT)

Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud.1 Corinthians 13:4 (TLB)

Conversely when we are impatient, we are not loving! Filled with love practically nothing can provoke us, when anger prevails provocation is easily at hand. Patience speaks to being vulnerable with each other, just as the Lord made allowance for us.

With tender humility and quiet patience, always demonstrate gentleness and generous love toward one another, especially toward those who may try your patience…But instead be kind and affectionate toward one another. Has God graciously forgiven you? Then graciously forgive one another in the depths of Christ’s love.Ephesians 4:2,32 (TPT)

Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love….Instead, be kind to each other, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, just as God has forgiven you because you belong to Christ.Ephesians 4:2,32 (TLB)
