Is God pleased with my patience?
The word "still" occurs 156 times in the Old Testament (there were 153 fish caught, the day Jesus came to the disciples while they were fishing, after the resurrection - does the difference mean something?).
Psalms 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God"
Luke 21:19 "By patience possess your souls"
The word "still" occurs 60 times in the New Testament (there are a total of 66 books in the Old and New Testament - is the difference significant?)
Romans 15:5 "Now may the God of Patience and Comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus,"
(Have you ever thought of God, as the God of Patience?)
The word "patience" occurs 25 times in the entire Bible (Jesus spoke of the end times in a total of 25 verses, recorded in 3 places (Matthew 24:14-39, Mark 13:2-27, Luke 21:6-31; John 12:24 the 25th word is "dies", speaking of the point of the cross, the testimony of Him on which, is the spirit of prophecy - are patience and Jesus related, in the end?)
Have you the patience to understand, that you must have patience?
Is God pleased with your patience?
