DOUBT, ENEMY OF FAITH!

THURSDAY 15TH MARCH, 2018 MORNING PRAYER DEVOTION
SCRIPTURE READING:- MARK 11:12-23
TOPIC:- DOUBT, ENEMY OF FAITH!
TEXT:- MATTHEW 14:31

A. Doubt is defined in English word as derived from Latin word, “dubitare” or “dubius” from which we get “dubious.”
B. There are two different concepts of doubt:
1. Unbelief; disbelief; rejection; denial; agnosticism; faithlessness. [“Cartesian doubt” begins by doubting all things, but refuses to doubt its doubts]. While [Skeptics and scoffers begin with contempt and derision to prove their preconceived unbelief].
2. Uncertainty; lack of confidence; reservation; problematic; misgivings; skeptical; questioning; wavering; indeterminate.
C. There are some Greek words in the Bible references to doubt:
1. The Greek word “distazo” meaning twice or double, Matthew 14:31.
2. The Greek word “diakrino” meaning to judge; determine, Mark 11:23.
D. What about faith, [the opposite or enemy] of doubt:
1. Greek word “pistis” means belief which is mental assent; cognitive acceptance; dogmatic assertion comprising intellectual certainty, static.
2. Faith is volitional receptivity and availability allowing for functional certainty of God’s activity i.e. substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen, Hebrew 11:1.
E. Doubt and faith.
1. The intellectual certainty of mental belief does not allow for unbelief, rejection or denial.
2. The intellectual certainty of mental belief does not allow for the uncertainty of questioning, reservations or misgivings.
F. Prayer Points:-
1. I command every cloud of doubt dy life, disappear by fire.
2. I command the spirit of doubt, unbelief and uncertainty, jump out of me by fire.
3. My faith in God, grow up now by the fire/power of the Holy Ghost.

Have A Glorious Thursday!

God bless,
Pastor Tim.

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
