What is doubt? Doubt is feeling
unsettled in an opinion or belief; uncertain, undecided; to
be likely to disbelieve; to be uncertain about something;
to feel distrust; to waver in an opinion or belief; unsure;
giving rise to suspicion; questioning. Doubt is the opposite of faith.
submit to God,
pray for strength to resist,
run, sometimes literally, and
say NO when confronted with what we know is wrong. Blessings
and rewards wait for those who donít give in when tempted.
James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried,
he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised
to them that love him. [KJV]

always fulfills His Promises.
We can trust the ENTIRE Bible because it contains the words of a holy, trustworthy,
and unchangeable God.
Matthew 14:31 And
immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him,
and said unto him, O thou of
little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? [KJV] --- When our faith falters, it doesn’t mean we have
failed. When Peter’s faith faltered, he
reached out to Christ, the only One who could help.
He was afraid, but he still looked to Christ. When troubles
surround you and you begin to doubt in Christ’s Presence or
ability to help, please remember that He is the only One who
can really help.
Matthew 21:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily
I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall
not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if
ye shall say unto
this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the
sea; it shall be done. [KJV] Jesus’
statement that if we have faith and don’t doubt,
does not mean literal "mountain-moving" acts.
He was NOT suggesting we perform magic, or miracles.
He was making a strong point about the disciples’ (and our) lack of faith. We face many ‘mountains’ (troubles)
in our daily lives. Have you talked to God about them? How
strong is your faith? Luke 17:5 And the apostles
said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. [KJV] --- We are
permitted to ask for more faith. It pleases God when we do.
Matthew 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
[KJV] If you see our Lord Jesus with an eye of faith, you
will worship Him. Yet at times, the faith of God’s children
may be weak and wavering. Our faith is never on the
same level. One day it will be up --- the next day it seems
to drop. But Christ gave such convincing proofs of His resurrection,
it makes our faith triumph over our doubts. As this verse
states, there will always be those who doubt Christ.
Acts 10:17 Now
while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had
seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius
had made enquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate, [KJV] --- The prejudices of Peter against the Gentiles, would
have prevented his going to Cornelius, unless the Lord had
prepared him. God knows what services are before us, and knows
exactly how to equip us. We should never doubt the Lord when
He asks something of us.
1 Timothy 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting
up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. [KJV] --- We
must pray in love; without wrath, malice, or anger at any
person. We must pray in faith, without
doubting, and without arguments, trusting
God completely! God has never told
a lie, nor will He ever tell a lie. God cannot lie! Trust
Doubts, are simply traitors to our soul,
"I can’t" is born of doubt, that took control!
But faith is a ‘flame,’ deep down inside,
We should always seek, for faith to abide!
Doubts are really betrayers to our heart,
Doubt in our life, should not be a part!
All our excuses, of doubt are born,
Faith instead, God’s children should adorn!
Doubts are truly a negative power,
Cramping and crippling, hour after hour!
Satan wants us to doubt God, alway,
Don’t give in, and become the devil’s prey!
Doubts, will absolutely make you fail,
Your common sense, will be to no avail!
Unbelief makes you God’s enemy,
God wants us to believe; you and me!
Doubts will keep you from eternal success,
For the ‘Ladder’ to Heav’n, you can’t access!
Christ is this ‘Ladder;’ you must believe!
Throw away your doubt, and Him receive!
Doubt is a sin, that will lead you to Hell,
And there for eternity, you shall dwell!
Open your heart’s door, to Jesus today!
Total faith in Christ, is the only way!

Can I Stop Worrying?
Worry goes right
along with doubt. Worry is agitation, anxiety, confusion,
distress, disquietness, distress, disturbed, dread, doubt,
fear, fretting, misgiving, mistrust, torment, upset, etc.
Worry is a very self-destructive emotion. It shows a lack
of faith (doubt, which is sin) on our part, that God truly
does loves us and is always in control. We should not worry
but instead trust God, giving ourselves completely over to
Him. Any time you dwell on your problems, you will become
anxious and angry, and quite often the things you worry about
never even happen. A favorite expression of a lady in one
of my classes is: "You are crossing bridges that have
never been built." If, on the other hand, you concentrate
on God and His goodness, you will find peace and contentment
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for
he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he
is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. [KJV]
You MUST have faith or you CANNOT please God. You MUST trust
Him always, in all things. Doubt and worry should not be part
of a true Christian's life. Any time doubt or worry sneaks
into your mind, go to the Lord in prayer immediately! Ask
for His help to overcome these attacks by Satan.
James 4:7 Submit
yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will
flee from you. [KJV] Many people quote the last part of
this verse. The KEY is the first part! You CANNOT "resist
the devil" without Jesus' help! SUBMIT yourself to God,
then you will be well able to resist the devil.
Philip. 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made
known unto God. [KJV] Quit worrying! To worry less, pray
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for
he careth for you. [KJV] Take ALL your problems to God
in prayer and trust Him to help you.
Psalm 37:8-9 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath:
fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.  For evildoers
shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they
shall inherit the earth. [KJV] A worried, discontented
spirit is wide open to many temptations.
20:24 Man's goings are of the Lord; how can a
man then understand his own way? [KJV] How can we understand
the road we travel? It is the Lord who directs our steps.
A child of God should never make plans or conduct any business,
without the Lord? We often get confused by events around us.
Some things we’ll never understand; while others seem to fall
into place. We should never worry if we don’t understand everything
that happens. Instead, trust that God knows what He is doing.
6:24-26 No man can serve
two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the
other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon.  Therefore I say unto
you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or
what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall
put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than
raiment?  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not,
neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? [KJV] Worry and doubt can cause
ill effects on your health. God has promised to supply all
our needs (Phil. 4:19).
Matthew 6:31-34 Therefore take no thought, saying,
What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal
shall we be clothed?  (For after all these things do the
Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have
need of all these things.  But seek ye first the kingdom
of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall
be added unto you.  Take therefore no thought for the
morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of
itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
damage your health,
consume your thoughts,
disrupt your ability,
affect the way you treat others, and
decrease your faith in God.
Worry can immobilize
you, but concern moves you to action. Our Lord Jesus warns
His disciples about worry; it disquiets and distracts. Jesus
says we shouldn’t worry about the length of our life; but
let God lengthen or shorten it as He desires. We are in his
Hand, and there is no better place to be! We shouldn’t worry
about the comforts of this life; but let God make it bitter
or sweet as He pleases. Food and clothing God has promised,
so therefore we can expect them. Don’t worry about tomorrow,
for it may never come for you. If we seek first the Kingdom
of God, we will always be well provided for, even in this
world. By our daily prayers we receive strength to bear us
up under any daily troubles, and help us fight against the
temptations. Do NOT doubt God's love or concern for you.
