Patience

Lord, you are the master and ruler of all things. Indeed all bow before you. Even those who would curse you or honor your name falsely, they too are doing your will. Who among us is not your servant?

All things are under your authority, working together to fulfill your purposes. Who are we to concern ourselves with such things? Are not all the creation the work of your hands? Who are we to tear down? Have you not ordained it?

Lord show me the way of righteous judgment and mercy, so I can walk in the peace of your patience. Even in my error, you are granting me knowledge so that I might learn the ways of your kingdom.

Praise be to the Father of all perfection, working in us mightily to perform His will! Who can resist the work of your hands? Who can turn their feet from the way of your ordinances? Whether we do justice or corruption, it is you, Lord that creates the hearts of man.

Foolish and vain man that seeks to do judgment. Who are we to reply against the will of God?

I will look to the fruitfulness of my own salvation with faith in the promises of abundant grace. Truly you are the author and finisher of my salvation, and all things are working together for those who love the Lord.

These are the things that ye shall do: Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates: And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things I hate, saith the Lord.  — Zechariah 8:16-17
