Alma 37:37
  37 aCounsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for bgood; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the cmorning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.

Continue in Patience - President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Several commandments are commandments of patience.

  • Chastity
  • Sabbath
  • Stay out of debt
  • Be selective with the media we partake of
  • Raising children

Doctrine and Covenants 98:2

Isaiah 40:31

Hosea 12:6
  6 Therefore aturn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually.

1 Nephi 21:23
  23 And akings shall be thy bnursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers; they shall bow down to thee with their face towards the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord; for they shall not be ashamed that cwait for me.

What would god be like without patience?

In whatever we want to receive we have to do our part.  Not just pray.  Not just throw it on a credit card.

It appears that Balaam did not want to go against the commands of God, but he also wanted early rewards from the wicked.  He ended up getting caught in the middle and was killed.
