It’s not as easy as it sounds. Many people say it so casually “you need to have faith” without telling you that it takes hard work. So some people run away with the idea that it’s easy, and become overly discouraged when they are hit with the reality, that having faith can be very hard.
Have you ever made up in your mind that you were going to put your faith and trust in Gods word but then doubt steps in and whoops there goes all your plans to believe. This has happened to me so often. It can be a real struggle especially if you’re accustomed to having your doubt overrule everything in your life.
You have to be prepared to put in the work and work overtime as well. Doubt creeps in so easily sometimes and it seems almost natural to believe the doubts. But having faith takes us consistently and consciously fighting against the doubt and praying for the strength to believe in the promises of God. It’s saying, God right now it’s so easy to doubt but give me the strength to believe in you.
Your doubts will be so loud at times it’ll take all you have to muster the courage to pray. It’s all about changing your habits. We all know how hard it is to get rid of an old habit. Mindfully making the decision to ignore your doubts and pray to God for his strength to believe in His word.
I need you to know it’s not going to be easy, so be prepared to fight through your doubts and reach out to God to help your unbelief and He will! Before you know it, your new habit will be trusting in God and ignoring the doubts.
Your faith will be enriched!
Just Keep relying on God’s strength!
