We must ask in Faith without Doubting!

Isn’t it amazing that no matter how close to God we may feel, there will always be issues with doubt? Everyone of us battles doubt at one time or another. Why is it so hard to overcome? Satan knows that if we doubt God, then there is no place for our faith to work for us. Doubt is the opposite of faith! Doubt is a useless emotion that Satan loves to put it in our mind that we entertain doubt more than faith, and we question God’s promises. Our humanness often gets in the way of the supernatural! And, the supernatural requires “S T R E T C H I N G!!” Believing in those things that God can do and what we cannot do. We must ask in Faith without Doubting!

“But he must ask in faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed around by the wind.” ~ James 1:6

My friends fears and doubt are a tool of the Enemy. Satan will often add his own words to increase your negative thinking. He reminds you of past mistakes and seemingly unanswered prayers. His age-old technique of questioning God’s direction makes you wonder if you truly know the Lord’s will. As the Father of Lies, Satan tries to twist the truth to serve his purposes.

When doubts surface, confess them as sin. Remember other times you trusted God and His faithfulness, and meditate on His promises. The Holy Spirit will guide you into truth so you can overcome your doubts. Doubt doesn’t fit who you are as born-again believer. You are His child and permanently adopted into His family, heirs, and co-heirs with His Son, Jesus. As believers, our character is defined when we walk in step with God.

Let me encourage you to not allow doubt to cripple your faith walk! When doubt fills your mind, you need to seek to deepen your personal relationship with Jesus, by spending more time with Him in prayer , and to your mind with God’s Holy Word and soon you’ll see your doubt began to weaken. Don’t allow Satan to use that old trick on you…. Just start from right now, and say, “Lord, help my unbelief!”

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
