A component of the fruit of the Holy spirit is long-suffering/endurance. The only person that we can be certain of is God. And because of that we can endure tests and trials that comes from his courts. We know through these tests we develop stronger trust of God. God answers prayers immediately they are spoken. But what we don't understand is the ways he works. Everytime we know how God works a new level of endurance gets released to us. I believe endurance is better than the blessing itself. We see that the heroes of faith saw the promise from a far but didn't receive it. Yet they had endurance to still trust God. God is into long-term and generational blessings and unless we get rid of the spirit of entitlement we are always going to be discontent with our relationship with God.
