THOUGHT OF THE DAY
Let’s make something very clear, there is no justification to side with doubt. There is no situation in life that
makes it okay to walk in doubt . No matter how bad things are, or impossible they seem, we should always
side with faith.
I did that recently. I was in a situation where the odds seemed bleak and guess what I did? You guessed right,
I began to doubt if YAH would come through. I am not talking about doubting and then coming back to my
senses and trusting YAH. No, I am talking about a resignation, a buckling to the pressure and deciding the
situation was lost, making a decision that nothing could be done!
We need to always have faith no matter how dim things appear. There is a a story in the bible that perfectly
illustrates what I am talking about;
“Jesus was still speaking to her when some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler.
The men said, “Your daughter is dead. There is now no need to bother the teacher.”
But Jesus paid no attention to what the men said. He said to the synagogue ruler,
“Don’t be afraid; only believe.”
Mark 5:35, 36
Yeshua did not allow the man to entertain doubt. As soon as the men spoke to the ruler, Yeshua urged
him to believe, to not falter, to not doubt.
One could argue that there would be nothing wrong if the man simply accepted the news and went his
way. His daughter had died after all. But Yeshua wouldn’t have any of that. He challenged the man’s faith.
He challenged him to take his faith a step further.
Like I said in the beginning, there is no situation that warrants us to walk in doubt and unbelief.
We need to always side with faith no matter how dark a situation seems. Even when everyone is telling
you there is no way, side with faith, stand on it, declare it.
Doubt is not from YAH. Doubt makes it hard for Him to work in our lives.
Doubt makes it hard for us to see His power and miracles. It makes no room for Him to move.
When Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were commanded to bow down to the kings statue this is how
“You can throw us into the blazing furnace. The God we serve is able to save us from the furnace and your
power. If He does this, it is good.
But even if God does not save us, we want you, our king, to know this:
We will not serve your gods. We will not worship the gold statue you have set up.”
There was no compromising even in the face of a blazing furnace. They would trust YAH even if it meant
death! And that’s the kind of attitude we should have when it comes to faith.
Doubt must have no room in our lives. We should always choose faith.
Even when the whole world is doubting, choose faith. Don’t ever side with doubt.
“The just shall live by faith” is what the word teaches us so let’s do exactly that, walk by faith.
Bless you friends!
I saw this post on IG and I immediately went to your blog to read it. Earlier, I was wrestling with my doubts concerning a big decision that is due by the end of this year. I strongly feel for this decision because I feel that God is putting a vision in my heart, but it will cause me to leave everything behind.
In the same way that we pray for our needs, we also have to cast our doubts to God and pray for the power to overcome it, like what the boy’s father did in Mark 9:24.
I find this so fortifying. Thank you!
That’s right Jayson. When the doubts come we need to be vigilant in taking them to the Lord. Doubts that are held on to create uncertainty, fear, and a lack of confidence. We really need His help with this. I pray that the Lord will give you peace as you do what needs to be done. Peace and confidence in Him. Be assured He is with you and helping you….
Bless you bro
