BUT LET HIM ASK IN FAITH, WITHOUT DOUBTING
by Sam Sweg
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; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. James 1:6-8
When you pray to The Lord Jesus Christ without any expectancy to receive your answered prayer. The Bible says you are double minded and you will not receive any thing from The Lord! True Faith is focused and believes in your heart you will receive your answer to your prayer.
John 14:13 “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
A double minded person is like driving a car without a steering wheel you really do not know what you want. Have you ever gone to a shoe store with someone who cannot make up their mind and they leave frustrated or they are sorry they did not get the first pair they tried on.
John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
The Lord Jesus Christ will always answer a focused prayer of Faith not a double minded prayer.
Mark 11:24 “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
The Lord Jesus Christ will always give you the perfect answer. He cannot and will not give you a answered pray that is double minded, confused or not a perfect solution to your prayers. Would you hire a doctor to perform surgery on you who is double minded and confused on what he is going to do?
James 1:16-17 Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
When you spend time in The Word of God and find out exactly what The Word of God says then you can focus on exactly what the Will of God is for you. His Word is His Will and The Truth.
1 John 5:14-15 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
When you know His Will you can have a full focused Faith that Jesus will answer your Prayer.
John 8:31-32 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
