Hebrews 10:36 says, “You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised.”
James 1:3-4 says “knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
(Ecclesiastes 7:9) talks about anger. Ephesians 4:26 states: “do not let the sun go down on your wrath.” I.e. Sleeping on it won’t help; you will wake up madder and angrier. Rather than expressing it wrongly or repressing it we should confess it and why. Remember the words in 1 John 1: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
James 1:5 says: “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
