Patience is the willingness to respond to irritating circumstances with love, grace and kindness as you wait on the Lord to guide you in how to handle a situation. Many of us struggle with patience at times. We want what we want, and we want it now. But God's timing is perfect, and often requires patience as He reveals His will and way. In this message, Dr. Merritt explains how to develop persistence as our patience is tried and tested in life.

"Problems are not meant to defeat you, they are not meant to depress you. They are not meant to discourage you. They are meant to develop you. Problems are not tools to tear you down; they are tests to build you up." --Dr. Merritt
