satan Uses Us Against Us


It Is Written, James 1:5-8, if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  6) 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.  7) for let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8) he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
A common problem that many believers have, is when prayers seem to go unanswered.  Doubt comes in, and takes over.  Many Christians have a hard time believing, because satan plants the doubt, and a believer accepts it as fact.
There are many reasons for unanswered prayer.  Doubt, fear, knowing God can, but will He?  Worry is also a big problem.
Let's use supernatural healing as an example.  Suppose a pastor lays hands on you to heal a problem in a leg.  When he lays hands on you and prays it is up to you to believe that you are healed.  When you do, that healing is set in motion in the spirit world and you receive it because by Jesus stripes you were healed.
The healed person must continue to believe, even if the pain doesn't leave immediately.  Sometimes it takes a while, and discouragement shows its head.  satan is right there to tell you that you aren't healed, and besides that you don't deserve to be.  At this point you must stand on the Word.
When you are getting up from a chair, anticipate strong healthy legs, not painful ones.  Always remember that the Holy Spirit is working and it will come to pass.  It's just a question of receiving what Jesus has already done. The sad part is many people give up just before they get the answer.
If you follow what the Word says, and do not doubt, but trust in the Lord, no matter what, you will receive what you ask.  Faith love and trust in God are the keys for everything, no matter how impossible it may look.  If you are a believer and it is in the Word, you will receive.  You must remember, God cannot lie, and satan cannot tell the truth.  Have a blessed day.
Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
