Patience is tested during trials and temptations. As it is usually easily to give up on our faith when we are faced with trials.
Job in the bible is considered as a man of patience because despite the fact that he was tempted a lot with the devil he patiently endured and never gave up waiting upon the Lord.
He endured the pain and the loss that he was going through without wavering his faith in God. He didn’t give up on the way until God came through to rescue him and restore him back to his original position.
Many are the promises of God that God has spoken to us through His word. These promises might not appear instantly as most of us may expect, they might take the time it now calls upon us to practice patience.
For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise. (Hebrews 10:36)
We should know that when we pass through various trials it is our faith that is being tested for it to produce patience. That is why when James is writing to believers he tells them to count it all joy when they fall into various trials. (James 1:2)
When we develop patience as a fruit of the Holy Spirit, we will never complain when things are not manifesting in the physical even if we are constantly trusting God and worshiping Him. Our faith will be built on His word that even though it may take time we will still continue trusting in God.
