Living It Out By Faith Pt. 3
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
Matthew 21:21-22 NKJV
As Christians, we can sometimes get trapped in the same prayer of “Increase my faith!” But we don’t need more faith. In this verse, Jesus said, “if you have faith and do not doubt.” Your problem is not that you don’t have enough faith, it’s that you have doubt! When we don’t see things working out like we want them to, or when we don’t see what we believe God for, it can create doubt.
God has given you all the faith you will ever need for any circumstance you find yourself in. You don’t always feel like that because you have to start using that faith and stop doubting. That’s why whatever you ask in prayer BELIEVING you will receive. You have to be believing!
So how do we believe and not doubt? It comes back to what you are focusing on. If you focus on the economy or the doctor’s report or the problems you are experiencing, you will be filled with doubt. But if you focus on the word of God, teachings on faith, and the great things God has done and has given you, you will be filled with Faith!
Be Blessed and Encouraged,
