FEED YOUR FAITH AND STARVE YOUR DOUBTS

Post  Admin on Tue 02 Dec 2008, 6:41 pm

FEED YOUR FAITH AND STARVE YOUR DOUBTS

The greatest hindrances to the church has always been (and still
is) "doubt pushers". What are "doubt pushers"? Those who push
doubt. Why are they called that? Because they cause miscarriages of
miracles and dreams in themselves and people around them.

There are observations about doubt pushers.
They haven't much faith and push doubt on themselves and others.
If you turn to Numbers chapter 13 and read verses 25-33 (KJV),
you will see the story of some doubt pushers.

Doubt pushers are people who relate with unfavorably experiences
(verses 25-27). They are people who have reality of firm evidence
(vs. 27). They REDUCE fervant excitement (vs.28). They release FEAR
and EXAGGERATION (vs.28-33). They reject FAITH and encouragement
(vs.30,31). They remove foresight and expectancy (chapter 14:1-3).
They are NOT positive in attitude, but are negative. There is
nothing POSITIVE in their speech. They place doubt in circumstances
betweeen God and mankind while FAITH puts God between circumstances
and us.

Romans 1:16,17 tells us "For I am not ashamed of the gospel for it
is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes to the
Jew first and alos to the Greek." (vs. 17) "For in it the
rightesouness of God is revealed from FAITH TO FAITH as it is
written but the righteous man shall live by faith".

Our primary faith, our foundation is, saved by the Blood. This
prodcces our powerful faith, our fruitfulness. Doubt does not bring
foeth fruit. Primary faith saves us and gives us eternal life.
Powerful faith sustains us in everyday life. Primary faith assures
us of what kind of person we are. Powerful Faith has the potential
we an become in Christ. Primary faith redeems and secures us.
Powerful faith is a risk that stretches us. Jesus compared doing
God's will and work to eating food (John 4:31-35). We need both food
and faith which is necessary for health, growth and survival both in
the physical and spiritual realm. Both food and faith bring delight.
When you have a true physical dining experience, the food is just
right, it satisfies. It is a true dining experience. The same with
spiritual food, yet a doubt pusher, will try to knock that down in a
Christian. Both food and faith in physical and spiritual life will
cost you. In the physical, food costs money. In the spiritual,
spiritual food costs a life of dedication.

A doub pusher will make the faith in a Christian stumble.
Doubt pushers will bring the Christian down. They will see
negativity in every situation, never seeing positive. We need to
learn to FEED our faith and STARVE our doubts so that we do not
become a doubt pusher, but rather a faith builder. How do we avoid
being a doubt pusher? Avoid doubt pushers in your life unless you
are strong enough to push your faith. Expect your faith to grow.
Faith has degrees.

Associate with positive Christians, people who will build your faith
up. Romans 1:12 - "....that I may be ENCOURAGED together with you
while among you each of us by the other's faith.." 2 Cor. 1015 -
"....as your faith grows, we shall be enlarged even more by you."
1 Thess. 3:2 "And we sent Timothy....to strengthen and encoueage you
as to your faith". We get faith from soneone else. We lose faith by
being with a doubt pusher. Do not become a doubt pusher. Strive to
have more faith. Meditate on God's Word. Pray daily Keep your faith
active. Hebrews 11:1 - "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped
for, the evidence of things not seen." (Read HEBREWS 11:6) How is
faith increased? In the heat of a trial. We learn to lean more on
God. When we are around "doubt pushers". When we have a
determination. (Acts 4:29-31; Acts 13:52). We need confidence and
faith. We need to communicate with fervor. We ned to do the possible
and let God do the impossible. Most important, God sees our
problems. Be enthusiastic when praying. Don't follow after signs and
wonders; let them follow you.

Be a FAITH BUILDER today. FEED YOUR FAITH and STARVE doubt.
