DON’T DOUBT

Samuel Francis DuPont was a successful Admiral in the United States Navy. But on one occasion he suffered a humiliating defeat. Following this loss he went to his commanding officer and carefully explained why he lost the battle.

At the end of his explanation, his commanding officer said, “There’s one more reason you did not mention. You did not believe that you could win.”

Doubt leads many of us into defeat. It destroys our determination and undermines our vision. Whenever we doubt God’s power or ability, we place our trust in someone or something else. It is as though we are saying, “God, we don’t trust You so we are going to try to solve our problems without You.”

Jesus once said, “If you really believe, you can say to this mountain – May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea – and it will happen!” Jesus used this powerful illustration to emphasize the fact God can do the impossible. God answers our prayers when we pray in faith, have unselfish motives, know that what we ask for will bring glory to Him, will extend His kingdom on earth and is in keeping with His will for our lives.

Prayer: Lord, may we have enough confidence in Your Word to believe that all things are possible. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture for Today: Mark 11:22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.
