Are you sure that’s what God said? Maybe you are mistaken. Wait another day. Soon after God tells us to do something, no matter how insignificant, doubts will try to cause us to go no further.
The first lie satan spoke to Eve made her question herself, “Has God said?” Second thoughts that question God’s Words come to cause us to doubt. When we waver, go back and forth on a decision, we cannot move forward. We might take a few steps forward and then the doubt moves us the same few steps backwards.
As we place our desire to obey the Lord above all else, we move forward no matter what, enabled by the Holy Spirit. We do not question God. We take all thoughts that oppose God’s will captive immediately. God can speak loud enough if He wants us to go another direction. He does not do that through doubt, unbelief or fear. He leads us by His spirit; His peace, joy and righteousness.
When God decides, He also provides. We stand by faith and wait upon His ways. God is so awesome that He carries us through any back-and-forth moments. He helps us to walk in even more determination, from glory to glory!
James 1:6-8 “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 supposes that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”
