These daily online studies are adapted from our Quiet Time Bible Guide. The studies go through the Old and New Testaments in just over two years. The approach taken by our quiet time Bible studies does not include answers. The goal of the study is to help you dig into Scripture for yourself. You can go deeper using a commentary, Bible background guide or Bible handbook.
For more context before you begin studying, read this introduction to the book of James.
You have probably heard of the young man who cried out, "Lord, I want patience and I want it now!" James encourages us in this passage to wait on God, to be patient, and warns us against wanting it all now.
God wants to know your concerns and frustrations. Tell God what has been making you impatient lately.
Pray that God would make you a person who can wait for God to answer prayer.
