Don’t Let Doubt Rob You
And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? — MATTHEW 14:31
Many times a miracle begins in a person’s life, and then doubt robs him or her of the full blessing. A miracle began in the life of Peter. He was walking on the water. But that miracle was never consummated. That miracle never came into full fruition. Why? According to Matthew 14:31, he let doubt get in.
I was preaching along this line one time, and an Assembly of God pastor said, “I understand something now that I didn’t understand before. As a young preacher, there were two women in my church. Both of them had cancer of the liver. By the time they both found out about it, they each had only a few weeks to live.
About that time, a healing evangelist came to the church. He prayed for the sick by the laying on of hands. And both women were gloriously and marvelously healed.
At the time this pastor spoke to me, fifteen or twenty years had passed since the women had been healed. Only one of them was still alive. The other had died. All her symptoms were gone for several months. Then she got up at a prayer meeting and said, “I want you all to pray for me. Those symptoms of cancer have come back on me.” Well, they prayed, but she let doubt get in. She grew steadily worse until she died.
Confession: I refuse to let doubt rob me of the blessings of God. I shut the door on
doubt. I choose instead to believe God’s Word. I act on what God’s Word says about me.
