TOPIC: YOU BELIEVE NOT
Read: James 1:5-8
“And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” Matthew 13:58
Today’s Bible reading establishes that anyone who doubts will not get anything from God and this is the reason many people don’t experience good things in their lives. Imagine someone who makes a positive confession about his exam results, then all of a sudden becomes afraid a few days to the exam and starts saying he is not sure about his success.
That person might eventually fail the exam because he entertained fear in his heart. My dear, when you doubt Gods ability to do something for or through you, you ma get into trouble. Anyone who doubts is like a sea that is never still. When you take your gaze off Jesus to look at your challenges, you’re likely to sink just like Peter did when he saw the boisterous sea (Matthew 14:30 ).
God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all you can ever ask or think (Ephesians 3:20 ), hence, you should get rid of any doubt when you pray. Also, when you hear any good prophecy from a man of God or God Himself, never doubt it so that you don’t become like the aide to the king of Syria who doubted the prophecy of Elisha and didn’t eat of it (2 Kings 7:12 ,17).
Point: Ask God to take away the spirit of doubt from you today.
