Patience, is the key to victory

Good things come to those who wait for it with perseverance and patience; but the impulsive and impatient person will pass from trouble to trouble.

Like a restless wind the impatient person will never find peace or rest for his soul.

Brethren, we are all running in a spiritual race where the stakes are very great and the cost of failure is extremely severe.

Yet it is a race we must run with perseverance and patience and not with speed and haste; for as soon as we lose our patience in our endeavor to serve the Lord, we have already lost the race.

Patience, than, is the key to victory in the race for the high calling of God.

Patience is what separates saints from the ordinary people.
