When Peter began to sink after walking on the water, Jesus said to him, “Oh you of little faith, why did doubt?” ??♂️ Jesus wasn’t saying Peter had a small AMOUNT of faith: In the original Greek He was saying, “Oh you of a SHORT BURST of faith.” Peter had the faith, but it didn’t last the distance. ☹️ Sometimes things don’t happen as quickly as we think they should. This doesn’t mean the Word isn’t working – the Word ALWAYS works! ?? But this is where we need to apply PATIENCE.
We need to keep going! ??♀️??♂️ Hebrews 6:12 encourages us to, “not become lazy, but imitate those who through faith and PATIENCE inherit the promises.” ?
We patiently keep speaking the word over our situations, and we aren’t moved by what we see, hear, or feel. ??♀️ We remain confident that like the ground works on a seed to produce a harvest, our heart is working on the Word we are sowing and watering to produce a harvest. ?
We do not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we WILL reap, if we do not give up! (Galatians 6:9) ???? #faithtalks
