For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised. ~Hebrews 10:36 AMP
This Scripture tells us that without patience and endurance we will not receive the promises of God. And Hebrews 6:12 (KJV) tells us that it is only through faith and patience that we inherit the promises.
The proud man runs in the strength of his own flesh and tries to make things happen in his own timing. Pride says, "I'm ready now!"
Humility says, "God knows best, and He will not be late!"
A humble man waits patiently; he actually has a "reverential fear" of moving in the strength of his own flesh. But a proud man tries one thing after another, all to no avail.
