How long will you halt and limp between two opinions? 1 Kings 18:21
Just the other day, my friend told me about a bad grade in her new program that she knows God wants her to be in. She was discouraged but I used God’s word to remind her that she is equipped for this new season and to trust what God originally told her. The next next had a higher score and the next after that had an even higher score. She believed that she could and studied and God gave her wisdom to succeed. If she had never started the program then this would be disobedience to what God has called for her life.
Disobedience stops you from doing what you know god want you to do, it also stops us from moving forward in faith. Satan tries to destroy our faith with lies.
Abraham is a great example of a person who did not allow doubt or unbelief to stop him from the promises that God gave him. Even when there was no human explanation of what was to come, Abraham kept his trust in the Lord and he was rewarded with what God told him he would have. Abraham stayed in a state of praise during every season that he went through. It showed God that he had faith and trusted in him. This is how we should be in our faith.
God places dreams and visions in our hearts and the enemy works hard to get us to be inactive and not take action toward what God has promised us with: lies, doubt, and fear. The enemy tries to intimidate you with storms in your life so that you will retreat from your goal.
You never know if you are the FIRST. You could be the First at whatever God is molding you to be in order to be an example in this world as a result of your faith. Look at Pastor Rick Shelton, who had to stay focused and did not waver in his mind in order to listen to what God called him to be. His action in listen to God has brought many to Christ.
Do not doubt as i am learning that doubt is a choice. God has already has given us the gift of faith. Always reject doubt and unbelief and when you choose your thoughts today, repeat, “I believe who God says I am”.
What area are you going to reject doubt and unbelief in today?
