⭕️A person that is not patient cannot have hope.
⭕️We serve a God of process.

⭕️In the absence of patience, there is no fruit.
⭕️Don’t be a good starter and a bad finisher.
⭕️Satan wants to strike you when your zeal is down, because that’s your weakest point.
⭕️We are dealing with an enemy who was with God and knows what God wants from us.
⭕️Every man has got his own seasons.
⭕️Many prophecies, miracles and breakthroughs do not happen because sons of men are not patient to hold on to what God said.
FATHER, BY YOUR MERCY, BAPTISE ME WITH THE SPIRIT OF PATIENCE.
