Right about now you may be thinking, when in doubt, don’t WHAT???

Don’t doubt! Probably ninety percent of unanswered prayer has its root in doubt and unbelief. Some people having a need think, I’ll throw a prayer out there, and who knows, maybe I’ll get an answer, maybe not. I’ve heard it said many times, “Well, you just never know what God’s going to do…He works in mysterious ways.”
Actually, that’s not the way it is at all. God works according to His Word, every time. That should not be so mysterious. It says in 1 John 5:14-15, And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

When we have God’s word that He answers prayer according to His will, then to get answers to our prayers, we only need to find out what God’s will is concerning whatever it is we have need of. How do we do that? Glad you asked.

Get out that Bible, dust it off, and look in the concordance for scriptures that make mention of what you have need of. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that what God says about a particular subject is His will concerning it. Now comes the easy part. Pray according to the will of God, and BELIEVE YE RECEIVE!

Personally, that has always been the easy part to me, because it is written that God cannot lie. If He says thus and thus is His will, then if I’m asking for His will in the situation, then it’s a no-brainer that I’m going to be successful in obtaining my petition of Him.

Here is where we get in the ditch…especially in the area of healing. The Lord Jesus said in John 5:19; Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. He said in John 10:30, I and my Father are one.

And yet, the very same people who say they believe Jesus are the very ones who are the first to doubt when trying to receive healing. That’s why I say, when in doubt, DON’T!!! But yet, they will fervently pray, Lord, if it’s your will, heal me. HELLO!!!! Didn’t you get in God’s word FIRST to see if it’s God’s will to heal you? If you did, then you will clearly see that the Lord Jesus healed all who came to Him needing healing, and you should be praying, Thank You Lord, for my healing!!! You may say, Well, I haven’t seen any change in my body yet, so how do I know I’m healed? Do you think perhaps the Lord has changed His mind? Even if you ignore the scriptures the Lord cannot deny His Word. Heb 13:8, says , Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, today, and for ever, and James 1:17, Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

But if you doubt, you do without! God does not honor doubt, not even among His twelve Disciples. Did you know the Lord Jesus upbraided Thomas for his doubt? Do you expect Him to do any less to you for doubting His word?

In these trying times we are all facing in the body of Christ, this is no time to let your faith become ineffective. If I serve no other purpose in the body of Christ, it’s this; to keep you encouraged when doubt is driving toward your front door on a D8 Caterpillar bulldozer.

The other day I was telling a dear friend of mine who is a car dealer this: If someone signs over the title of a car to you, even if you have never seen the car, nor have it there, you can still sell that car, right? Yes, because you have the title deed to it, and the legal ownership of it. God has given you title deed to your healing, right there in His Word, whether you can feel it, or see it, or touch it, has no affect whatsoever on the fact that it belongs to you. God’s word gives you ownership of it by faith.

You see, too many people today are limited by what they can see, feel, hear, taste, touch or smell. And you really can’t blame them, because God has “hard-wired” us that way. BUT, He has given us access to a “sixth-sense” which is FAITH, by which we appropriate those things in the spirit realm that God lives in, and bring them into the physical realm we live in. Name it and claim it? Blab it and grab it? No. It’s called “doing it God’s way”, and you won’t get it any other way, either. You can beg, holler, give offerings until you’re broke, and have everybody including Bigfoot pray for you, but you won’t get anything from the Lord until you get rid of your doubt.

Doubt will stop your prayers quicker than anything. If you’re getting ready to pray about something, and there lingers any doubt in your heart whatsoever, STOP! Don’t waste a perfectly good prayer. Instead, get back in the Bible and search out God’s opinion on the matter. Then you can effectively pray according to God’s will. Having done that, it’s done. Doesn’t matter if you see any change immediately or not, it’s still done.

Looking in Mark chapter 11 we see a good example of changes that take place even before we see evidence of it in the natural realm:

Mar 11:11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
Mar 11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
Mar 11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
Mar 11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
Mar 11:19 And when even was come, he went out of the city.
Mar 11:20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
Mar 11:21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
Mar 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
Mar 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Mar 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Mar 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

You may be thinking the fig tree was dead, once they saw the leaves dried up. But the truth of the matter is, it was dead from the moment Jesus cursed it, even though it didn’t look dead yet.

An example, if you “ring” a tree, in other words, if you cut all the way through the bark of a tree, all the way around it, from the second the knife blade or saw reaches the point where the cut started, the tree is DEAD! Now, “symptoms” of life are still in that tree at the moment, but come back a few days later, and that tree is withered. Why? Because you cut off the life support of that tree from its life giving roots.

The very moment you cut a flower off of its stem, it’s dead. Yeah, I know, it doesn’t look dead. Oh, you may prolong the “symptoms of life” for a day or two by putting it in a vase of water, but you know it will only be a short time until it is withered, along with the leaves, and there is no life left in it at all. Leaving that same flower on the stem connected to the plant, it will live out its full lifespan.

Jesus said in John 15:5, I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

It is so important you get this! The life of God in you is His Word. Cut off from His word, you have no life in you. Although you may read God’s word 15 hours a day, if you doubt His word, you have cut yourself off from His life. Doubt will literally kill you! I have known several people who were sick who could have lived, but they let their doubts kill them.

Now, moving on; when you pray for healing, know that Jesus bore that sickness in His body, and He became cursed for you, in your place. When you curse that disease in Jesus’ name, it’s dead, whether it looks, feels, or smells like it or not, doesn’t change the fact that it has been cut off from its life source. It’s only a matter of time until you see the “withering and death” of it in the physical realm. Symptoms of life of that disease can remain for a while if it is “watered” by doubt, but sooner or later, it’s time is up anyway, because it was cursed by the word of God, like Jesus did the fig tree. Got that? When you bind an unclean spirit from operating against you, in effect, you have cut off its power source and its ability to work against you. How soon do you want relief? Get rid of your doubt, for you are doing nothing but adding water to the vase to prolong the agony. Instead, chop ‘em off at the feet by eliminating doubt from your vocabulary, and from your heart. God is good for His word, and don’t you ever forget it!

If your need is not healing, but some other area, the very same principals apply. Starve your doubt and feed your faith. And when the opportunity to doubt arises….and it surely will…..do yourself a big favor…..DON’T!
