THIS IS A RICH YEAR WE WILL NOT doubt BECAUSE doubt it is sin
1 Kings 18;21
Then Elijah the prophet stood in front of them and said, How long are you going to WAIVER between two OPINIONS ? if the Lord is God, follow Him !! but if baal is God then follow him ! but the people were completely silent.
we as the people of God should not be completely silent if we are then we waiver at the promises of God, we should know that the Lord He is God and not doubt Him or His Word. we should know that His word is truth and Life and that as rain comes down and the snow from Heaven and do not return there but water the earth and make it bring forth a bud that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater so shall the word Of God be that goes forth from the Mouth of God it shall not return to God void but it(the word) shall ACCOMPLISH what I please and it(the word) shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. if we have faith like God and not doubt Him, His word will supply all our needs when we are in doubt we are saying we don't believe that God's word has the POWER to do what it says it will do then we are in sin.. we are doubting God's word, and in sin when we think that God can't deliver us from lust, poverty, hatred, trouble, fear, and so on, and so on, remember the exodus from Babylon the exodus from egypt this is a picture of how God delivers His people from their sin of doubts we must confess our doubt to the Lord because it is sin. Hebrews 10;23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope(without wavering) for He who promised is faithful, we got to hold on(be steadfast in our faith) to our confession of hope by faith in Christ Jesus that what God has said about us He is well able to do it, and some on top of that, if we be cured from a proud spirit we wont doubt God and what He has said to us about His promised for our life, and we will receive all of His promises for our life that we are His people and that He has blessed us this is His covenant(agreement) that He has made with us, and we can't doubt this if we doubt it this is sin. James 1;6-8 But let him ask in faith, with NO DOUBTING(this is sin) for HE WHO DOUBTS is like a WAVE of the sea driven and tossed by the wind, for let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man UNSTABLE in ALL his ways. when a man doubt God this becomes sin and this man is as a person with a split personality- double-minded man wavering between two opinions and this is sin in the Eyes of God either we are going to love the one or hate the other. The cure for doubt depends to some extent on the thing doubted, but the real problem for us is not in the object doubted but the person who doubts. therefore the following steps should be taken by the person that's doubting Gods word.
1) confess the doubt to God as sin, doubt is basically just unbelief in God and his word and is therefore sin. Romans 14;23 But if people have doubts about whether they should eat something, they shouldn't eat it they would be condemned for not acting in faith before God, if you do anything you believe is not right you are sinning. any action that leads a CHRISTIAN to COMPROMISE HIS OWN CONSCIENCE and thus commit sin. any action that violates our Christian Conscience is sin. Hebrews 11;6 so you see it is IMPOSSIBLE to please-(satisfy-to give pleasure to) God without faith, anyone who wants to come to Him MUST BELIEVE that there is a God and that He is a rewarder of those who sincerely seek Him. God has promised to hear our confession of even our darkest unbelief or the words that he has said and is saying that we doubting concerning our life's.
Psalm 32;5 I acknowledged my sin to you(doubt) and my iniquity i have not hidden, I said' i will confess my transgressions to the Lord. and You forgave the iniquity of my sin. David praises God for His willingness and authority to forgive us for his sin of doubt.
1 John 1;9 if we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness(doubt). God's forgiveness is given as soon as we admit our doubt for we do sometimes doubt God word and this is sin so we have need of God's forgiveness.
In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear nor doubt and terror will be far from you.
