There are things you would just have to wait. Begetting your child, for instance, will mean a wait of nine or ten months. There is no fast-forwarding this. God’s grace and blessing does not even have a fast forwarding button. If you do not have perseverance in you, you would end up bereft of His blessings.
Waiting is part of life whether you are millionaire, many times over or someone who is struggling to make both ends meet. Like in Corinthians 13:4, true love thinks nothing of waiting. And, if you can wait for a girl, the wait for whom will in any case come to an end in this temporal life, waiting for God, even if the wait is eternal, should be of no great difficulty. That is, if you have faith! Having faith is God is of utmost importance.
Paul talks of perseverance in Romans 8:38-39 and how nothing in the world can separate the faithful from God, if they are prepared to wait. He lists the very death and its opposite number life, the powers that are and angels, the happenings now and the happenings that could follow the heights and depths; everything could have no bearing on the faith or perseverance. He says he has been persuaded of these profundities.
Jesus had expressly told us that waiting long periods had been given to us on purpose. This is reflected in Paul’s words in Romans 5:4-5. He perfectly understands the purpose of the troubles that we are made to go through. The patience that is required of us to overcome the troubles will grant us the experience through which will result in our hope strengthening. And, hope that is placed on God can never go astray. The Holy Spirit will see that your hope is not belied.
There is a warning in Proverbs 11:13 that if you were to be evil but have the virtue of perseverance in you, you are very likely to reap sorrow. So, hope without being good in the eyes of God can only land you in more trouble. On the other hand, if you are sincere in your love for God and faithful to him, you can be sure of his blessing (Proverbs 20:22).
It is in order of things that each one of us have some other adversary. You will be delivered from their hands by the Lord. This is direct result of your waiting for God (Psalm 143:9). Not only perseverance but fear of God is also emphasized in Psalms 147:11.
