Leave No Room, Part 2
Let’s finish our teaching today on believing and leaving no open door for doubt and unbelief to take over our lives.
God has no fear in Him. He has no doubt or unbelief because He knows that what He says will work. He is all faith. We, too, are designed to have faith. The problem is that we have a mixture sometimes of fear and faith, and we get exactly that—-a mixture. The solution to that mixture is the purity of the Word of God. Every day we make choices based on what we believe. If we make the wrong choices, we need to fix our believer system. In Deuteronomy 30:19,20 we are told that God has set before us life and death, blessing and cursing. We are to choose life, that both we and our children may live. We are to choose God’s life, God’s way of living, God’s way of doing things. That choosing goes contrary to everything in the world’s way of doing things. It is an uphill battle sometimes to choose God’s way.
Every one of us is designed with a built-in believer. We will believe something. There is no such thing as a human being who does not believe. Even atheists believe something. They believe there is no God. That is a form of believing. What we believe is what we choose to accept as true for us in our personal lives. Let’s look at some natural examples: We choose to believe that the chair will hold us when we sit down. We choose to believe that our car will start and take us to our destination. We believe that when we pick up the telephone it will work. We believe that when we turn on our computer or our television or our ipod, it will work. We believe that the water will come out of the shower when we turn it on.
What if one of these natural things do not work one day? Do we then say that it is no good and turn away from it? NO, we get it fixed. Well, the same thing is true where God and His Word is concerned. If it does not seem to be working for you, get it fixed. What is keeping it from working in your life? Find out and fix it. Is there fear in your life? Are you doubting God’s ability to perform His Word in your life? What is the problem? Ask the Holy Spirit to show you and then obey what He says, not questioning how long it will take or “throwing in the towel” and saying it does not work for you. It will work for whosoever will put it to work.
Today, make a quality decision that you will choose to believe God and His Word will work for you personally in your life. Give the devil no place in your life or opportunity to come in!
