10 Bible Verses About Patience In Relationships: (Scriptures)

Last updated on June 26th, 2020 at 06:56 am

Patience in a relationship is absolutely necessary.

And that’s because, without tolerance, there is no true friendship.

God has created us in a very unique way.

Each of us has our strengths and weaknesses.

Hence, when you think things aren’t going well in your relationship, you must be patient.

I had similar issues with my wife.

When I first met her, I was not born again.

I had other girlfriends and barely gave her love, care, and support she desired.

For the first few years, My wife did all she could to understand me with all my flaws.

She was patient because she truly loved me.

There are many nights she wakes up to pray for our relationship.

And surprisingly, things began to change really fast.

Until our marriage last year, I have been the one trying to make things work.

From being a terrible guy, I have grown to love her and treat her well.

Therefore, if you are struggling with your partner, you must wait patiently in God.

I have compiled bible verses about patience in a relationship that will inspire you.

Final words about patience in a relationship

1. Patience is not plain stupidity

There are times in a relationship when nothing works.

If you are dealing with this type of friendship, its important that you pray to God

God alone searches the heart of man, and he will definitely come to your aid if you pray

But you should not always keep silent.

Always make your concerns known to your partner

“hey, I don’t like the way you treat me” or “I don’t like the way you move with other girls or guys.”

At all times be ready to rebuke with carefully chosen words (not quarreling) and encourage your partner too

Paul said,

Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction

2.  God has promised you happiness, so hope on that

There are times when you have a rocky start to a relationship

That is, despite those charming words at the beginning, things begin to fall apart really fast

Your partner no longer talk to you like before, or he no longer cares about your feelings

At this point, Prayer becomes invaluable

Talk to God about all you are going through

Paul said,

For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.

3.  We must all make sacrifices in a relationship

If we genuinely love each other, we must always be there when they need us

Not just in good times, but when things are going south

Sacrifice is the core of every healthy relationship

About two years ago, my wife (then girlfriend) got fed up with my ways of cheating

She has struggled over the years to make me change to no avail

So, she got fed up and decided to leave

That’s the focal point of our relationship.

At that point, I never knew how much she meant to me

As days went by, we stopped talking

Yeah, I was ignorantly a proud guy waiting for her to beg me as usual

But she didn’t

With each passing day, I was losing control of myself

At first, I thought I could do without her

But I was lying to myself

She was already part of my soul, and it was impossible to let her go

So, I had to make things work

It took me the grace of God, a vow, and multiple promises to get her back

We must all make sacrifices for our relationship to succeed

Genesis 29:20

So Jacob served seven years for Rachel and they seemed to him but a few days because of his love for her.

4.  Let love lead

Yes, “he doesn’t care anymore,” or “she does not love you like she used to.”
