CAN WE HAVE MORE FAITH THAN DOUBT?

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; – James 1:6-7a

Whatever our prayer request is, if we doubt and are not sure that God will give us what we are asking for, we will never receive anything. It seems to be easier to have faith when we pray for someone else, than when we pray for ourselves. This is because we know all the aspects of the issue we pray for and we are way more involved physically and emotionally, than when we pray for someone else.

Whenever we realize that we have doubtful thoughts, we must fight against them by declaring the truth of God’s Word. To build up faith and stop doubting, it also helps to remind ourselves of previous experiences, other people’s experiences, and anything else the Holy Spirit brings to our attention about similar situations.

SUGGESTED PRAYER

Dear Lord, You are the author of faith and without Your help I could never believe that Jesus is Your Son who died on the cross to save me. Please help me mature and continue to fight the good fight of faith, every day of my life. Dear Lord please help me find the right Bible verses for every prayer request I have and help me pray in faith, resisting any doubt or hesitation. Thank You for all the answers to my prayers that I have already received and for those yet to come, in the Name of Jesus I pray. Amen
