Do you have those times when you are in the line at the cashier and the person in front of you has a lot of items and then they have a credit or debit card and that makes it even longer and you can't even go to another line or those times when you are waiting for the bus and it seems like you have been waiting forever?

 In these times, it may seem so hard to be patient and to just wait till the person is done or for the bus to come but we should be patient. We should strive to be patient in every situation. 
But you O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.1 Timothy 6:11 (NKJV)

In the scripture above, it says to pursue patience. Patience should be something that we long to have and that we strive to be. Not only should we be patient in the natural things but also as it relates to God. They are times when we have to wait on God and be patient because His ways are different from our ways. God knows what is the best for us.

Wait on the Lord, be of good courage and He shall strengthen your heart.Wait, I say, on the Lord! Psalms 27:14 (NKJV)

In Acts 1:4, Jesus told the disciples to wait for the promise of the Father. As the disciples waited for the promise in the upper room, they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. If the disciples had not waited for the promise, they probably would have never been filled with the Holy Spirit. It is very important to wait because if you don't, you may ended up doing the wrong thing.

I waited patiently for the Lord and He inclined to me and heard my cry. Psalms 40:1 (NKJV)

So in everything, be patient whether it is standing in a line or waiting on God. Be patient!
