“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:12 (KJV)
Is it possible to have great faith, but lack patience? Do you believe your favorite store has exactly what you need, but you don’t want to wait in line to purchase it? No, if you know the store has what you need, you will gladly wait in line for it. So often we are deceived into thinking that we can have faith but struggle with patience, while it’s an inability to wait that shows our lack of faith. Faith and patience goes hand in hand. Because you doubt Him, you bite your nails wondering “When Lord!” It is our impatience that shows our slothfulness in believing. It takes strength to stand firm until God moves in our lives. True spiritual muscle is shown when you keep standing in faith and continue to move forward while you wait for God to manifest what He promised. He will always do His part. You must be sure to do yours.
Prayer: Father, I thank You for Your wisdom today. Forgive me for being impatient and doubtful. Help me stand and continue to move forward as You work things out for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
