God’s Will and Doubt
Eph 5:17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
:18 And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,
:19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,
:20 giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
:21 submitting to one another in the fear of God.
Rom 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
As we seek to know God's will for the future, we must also act on what we already know now.
Love and obey the Lord every day, and He will unfold your future.
Mt 21:21 So Jesus answered and said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, '
Be removed and be cast into the sea,' it will be done."
Doubt is a doorway for satan to enter your life. It causes the 'fight of faith' to take flight. Doubt is one of satan's ploys. Your doubts reveal a lack of confidence in what God says. How can you stop doubting? The same way you deal with other sin. Acknowledge the problem and do something about it. It's believing that when you surrender a thing to Him, He takes it and deals with it. Don't fret, wrestle or reason with your doubts. Instead, repeat your Spiritual declaration of faith, disregard your feelings and trust God to do what He says.
