Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
We cannot please GOD without having faith (read Hebrews 11:6), so this is a must for answered prayer! If we have doubt and unbelief (the opposite of faith), it will keep our prayers from being answered.
Faith pleases GOD. Satan, the father of lies, knows that! He will try to fill our minds with doubt, unbelief and questioning—-that is his job! But when he does, we need to check our hearts.
We need to follow our hearts.Satan will try to put thoughts in our mind, which is his battlefield (our minds)!
Doubt and unbelief can start with distraction from the promises of GOD and of GOD’S ability to come through for us. Our faith can diminish if we start thinking more and more about our problems and challenges instead of keeping our eyes on YESHUA, the Champion who perfects our faith!
But when you ask Him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.
Keeping our eyes off everything that steals our faith or distracts us from what the Word of GOD says is the antidote to doubt and unbelief!
Only believe and you will see the glory of GOD in your answered prayer!
