Morning Prayer, Thursday, September 20, 2018 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: LORD INCREASE MY FAITH
Father God, today, I ask You to increase my faith so there will be no doubt at all in me. Amen
Matthew 21:22; Mark 11:24; Luke 17:5
“True faith takes God without any ifs." Have you ever prayed about something or asked someone to pray for you and then followed it up with “I hope it happens?” For instance, you are believing God for a loan to come through. You ask people to pray and believe with you. They agree but every time you start talking about it, you say things like “I really hope I get that loan.” God says to us in Matthew 21:22. “Whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive if you have faith.” It does not say you will receive it if you hope that it comes. It says, “if you have faith.” Then, in Mark 11:24, it tells us this, “Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” I have heard people say they prayed but then in the same breath, they speak doubt about the situation. The moment you start to speak negative or doubt that it will happen, you cancel the prayer. A lot of times we are not even aware of this. A while back, I went to visit someone in the hospital. She kept saying in front of certain people from her church, I prayed and I believe God is going to heal me. As soon as those people left and her family members came, she started giving away her belongings to them. You can't say "I believe God," and at the same time doubt that He can work your situation out. Pay attention to the words that come out of your mouth. Whether you are praying to get a spouse, a job, healing, a loan approved or whatever the case may be, don’t cancel it out with doubt. You either believe God or you don't. If your faith is weak, be like the apostles in Luke 17:5, and pray, "Lord, increase [my] faith."
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believed in him would not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
