“I have my doubts.”
Have you ever said that about something when you were wondering whether it would come to pass?
Or maybe you heard someone say that about something you said you were going to do. Maybe you were trusting in God for a healing for your body and someone said, “I doubt that will happen”.
While we can be affected by what other people say, the most powerful words that are spoken are words that come from our own mouth.
In Mark 11:23, Jesus says:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”
Take notice of how many times the words ‘say’ and ‘says’ come up in this scripture. Jesus’ teaching here is about saying the right thing. He said, “we will have whatever we say”.
We must take stock of what comes out of our mouths in order to set the course of our future.
This scripture also speaks about not doubting in your heart. You can have faith in your heart and doubt in your head.
Have you ever said, “I don’t know how this is going to happen but I just know it will happen”? That’s an example of having doubt in your head while having faith in your heart.
If you are praying about something, feed on what God’s word says about your situation. This will build faith in your heart.
Rom. 10:17 tells us that faith comes by hearing God’s word. Therefore, as we feed on His word faith arises.
Have a wonderful day…
