Not Doubting

I'm reading the book I Never Learned to Doubt by Jesse Duplantis. I have been contemplating the terms doubt.


I never learned to doubt….


What does that mean to me. Well I thought I never doubted before. Now looking back I did so much. Remembering back to my actions. To my pride. Wanting to control instead of surrender. Letting the flesh take over in so many areas and keeping the Spirit of God in a box instead of letting it out to bleed over all of my life.

We do that so much. We say we don't doubt. We say we don't because we don't read the manual (the bible) to the life we were meant to live. We don't read the manual because we are lazy or because we don't want to change what we probably know we need to change. We don't want to change because we are comfortable doing and being what we are. We don't want to be uncomfortable. We don't want to be corrected.

We wonder why our relationships are in disarray, our finances are in shambles, we are down and out. I'm fully convinced that we have an opportunity to stay out of these scenarios. I'm not saying that scenarios will not come up. We do still live in a world that Satan is ruler and that he is out to steal, kill, and destroy. As Christians we have the working of the Holy Spirit inside of us. The Power of God lives within us. We have choices everyday to allow the power of God flow or allow our flesh to hinder the flow.

In Deuteronomy 30 the word is still talking about the curses and blessings that is listed in Deuteronomy 28. It list all that we can be blessed in and the same things we can also be cursed in. In chapter 30 it talks about how God has laid before you life and death. Choose which you will follow. We have the opportunity to walk in so much good but we need to learn how to do that. We need to learn what God says about us and how we should act.


It is a kingdom that we live in when we are saved. Just as earthly kingdoms stand for something. They have principles and laws, so does God's kingdom. Jesus is up there at the right hand of the Father. He is cheering us on and interceding for us. He sees when our hearts and when we are walking according to the kingdom. As we walk according to His word I believe that is where the scripture "He hems us in in" Psalms 139:5 comes into play. He hems us in on either side and puts his hand on us when we walk according to his word. We place ourselves in a position that no devil and hell can touch. Though the circumstances around us can be distracting to most, it is not to us. Because when we are truly in a position of being hemmed in we know without a shadow of a doubt that if God is for us, then who can be against. We have CHOSEN this position, CHOSEN to surrender every aspect of our life, therefore our hearts are prepared for battle.


Truthfully the battle has already been won because we have done our part in it. God is the one who defends us. Elisha and his servant looked outnumbered in Second Corinthians 6. But God had placed hills full of horses and chariots of fire around them. There is more with God's people then there is with the enemy. When God is for you, you always have more with you.

Our job is to keep our hearts in a state of being in faith. This includes being obedient. Obedient to the commands he has given in the bible and what he shows us day to day.
