Poverty Prayers Get Poor Answers

When Peter got out of the boat in Matthew 14 to walk towards Jesus on the water, Peter believed for something bigger. He would not have gotten out of the boat if he didn't. But, the moment it got hard, and it wasn't what Peter expected, he lost his faith and began to sink.

When he cried out for help, Jesus extended his hand and said to Peter, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"

Friend, we are all in a boat of uncertainty in our lives. Each day, we are being tossed around by unpredictable circumstances on the sea of our lives. The waves will crash, and the sea will be turbulent at times, but those who are willing to believe bigger will take control of their storm, get out of the boat, and walk on water with faith.

If you are going to change your life, you must first change your mind. Stop doubting yourself and your abilities. You say you want more, but are you willing to ask for more and believe for more even when it doesn't look like what you expected.

Poverty prayers get impoverished responses. As the late Rev. Ike says, You can go to the ocean of abundance with a teaspoon or a bucket; the choice is yours.
