Siding with doubt…..


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

they responded;

 

“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.”

Daniel 3:7

 

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!

God’s purpose for you under attack……


 

We have an amazing purpose to live out that is given to us directly by YAH.

The thing is, the enemy is trying to do all he can to stop us.

As we pursue the dreams Yeshua has put in our hearts we must depend on

Him with our everything.

You may be discouraged and feeling overwhelmed because of the attacks but

take heart because the Lord is with you. Let me share a story with you that illustrates this

truth perfectly;

 

“And [that same] following night the Lord stood beside Paul and said, 

Take courage, Paul, for as you have borne faithful witness concerning Me at Jerusalem, 

so you must also bear witness at Rome.”

Acts 23:10

 

In this verse Yeshua promised Paul he would go to Rome and bear witness of Him.

But in the next verse we read something interesting,

 

“Now when daylight came, the Jews formed a plot and bound themselves by an oath and 

under a curse neither to eat nor drink till they had done away with Paul. 

There were more than forty [men of them], who formed this conspiracy [swearing together this 

oath and curse]. 

Acts 23;11-15

 

Wow right?! Hours after the Lord spoke to Paul the enemy launched an attack against him!

In the natural Paul had no chance against this attack. There were forty Jews who were in on this

including the chief priests and elders.

But we need to look at what was really happening here.

The enemy thought he could stop the Lord’s purpose for Paul. he is so deceived that he thinks he

can stop YAH.

The Lord had promised Paul he would bear witness in Rome. Nothing would and could stop that

from happening. No matter the weapons the enemy used, they would all fail.

But the enemy thought he could challenge that!

 

The enemy’s plans for you will not succeed. Hold on to that truth with all you got.

The truth is this, he is a defeated foe and no plan against you can prosper because the Lord

is with you.

No matter the scheme, no matter the plan, no matter the weapon, they will all fail because the Lord

is protecting you and guiding you on your journey. His plan for your life will come to pass and that

is why I said you need to trust Him with everything you got. The enemy will try to deceive you into

believing he is winning but it’s a lie.

Trust the Lord’s leading, trust He is protecting you, trust He is in total control.

The journey we are on is long and there is plenty opportunity to get discouraged. But even when we

fall we must always remember that the Lord is with us. He is protecting us and directing our every step.

As I end this post I want you to see how powerful the Lord is. Look at the way he thwarted the enemy’s

attack;

 

‘Now the son of Paul’s sister heard of their ambush, so he went and entered the barracks and told Paul.”

Acts 23:16

 

The Lord used a young man! That’s all He needed. He didn’t break a sweat stopping the enemy’s plan.

The Lord has defeated the enemy and will continue doing so on our behalf with ease!

Don’t be discouraged. Keep trusting, keep praying…..

He will accomplish what He promised you.

Bless you friends!
