(Revelation 3:10) "Because thou hast kept the WORD of My patience." Patience is more than endurance.A saint's life is in the Hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer.God the only God of this world and the universe is aiming at something the saint(child of God) cannot see,and He God stretches and strains,and every now and again he says-"I cannot stand any more." God does not heed,He goes on stretching till His purpose is in sight,then He, God,lets it fly.Trust yourself in God's Hands.For what have you need of patiance just now? Maintain your relationship to Jesus Christ by the patience of FAITH."Though He, God slay me,yet I wait for Him."God has ventured all in Jesus to save us,now He wants us to venture out all in abandoned confidence in Him.
