God uses the comparison of a farmer planting seed and patiently waiting for the time of harvest. He can’t harvest prematurely. James says that the coming of the Lord is at hand. Now I am sure some of the Christians have to be more patient than others when they live in persecution.
Then there is in the phrase that there is One who judges all.
Now we have the prophets as an example of patient. The one I think of is Jeremiah. Serving God took a lot of patience. He went through a lot to serve the Lord.
The last I will mention is Job. We know history. But he came through but it took a lot of patience.
