Believing God will Answer

21 02 2012

Last time we talked about asking God. So when we have gotten up the courage to ask God, there is one more thing God asks us to do, believe and not doubt. We must believe he will answer us. Looking once again at James 1

“But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.”  James 1:6-7

 

To believe is to have a firm conviction. When it come to asking God, to believe means we have a firm conviction that he will answer. How firm is your conviction in God’s willingness to answer?

 

We must remember just as God’s love is unconditional, His willingness to answer is as well. When we doubt God will answer often we don’t believe God really loves and cares for us. Many Christians get mixed up when bad things happen thinking it is because God doesn’t love them.

 

When we doubt, we are tossed about emotionally and so we are like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. Our emotions left unchecked, often go where they have always gone, rather that having a firm conviction that even if the answer isn’t what we want to hear, God will answer us. Suddenly when we take this stand we are once again on dry ground with our eyes on our God, which allows us to be focused and able to hear from God.

 

To help us understand God’s unconditional love we need to understand fault vs. consequence, so join me next time.

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,
