How many of us declare we have faith? Many do, but when it comes time to put your faith into action, doubt jumps up, and it will take down your faith if you let that doubt grow. Often doubt will come in the form of friends, family, and yes, those that call themselves believers. Many will often label their doubt as realism, although realism is not a bad thing in certain situations, when is realism doubt? Realism is doubt when you dispute the word of YAH and when you sin (transgression of the law) to make things happen your way. Although you see the plan of YAH or his correction in plain sight, you say no that's not going to happen, that's doubt. However, if you are told something that's not in the bible, such as if you give away your last $2000 that you need to pay bills then you will receive 100 fold back, realism needs to step in here because this instruction is not in the scriptures. In the scriptures, we are told he who doesn't take care of his/her family is worse than an infidel (1 Timothy 5:8) and to give according to your means (2 Corinthians 9:7). Yahoshua also directs to take care of our parents before we give away money, did you know that (Matthew 23)?
Let's look at some scriptures about faith.
Mark 5:34 KJV -And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. This is just one of the many scriptures that show the power of faith. Others have prayed for help with their unbelief: Mark 9:27 KJV - And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Master, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
"If You can?" echoed YAHOSHUA. "All things are possible to him who believes!"
And the apostles said unto the KING Increase our faith.
Faith increases through trails, trusting, and tribulation as we walk out YARAH (Torah). Doubt says these things aren't possible. Doubt gives evil power and doubt produces fear.
Matthew 8:26 KJV
And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
What happens when we overcome our doubt?
"Because you have so little faith," He answered. "For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
The world puts its faith in everything except for YAHOSHUA or the world puts its faith in YAH while combining it with religious practices. We do not mix the clean with the unclean. Faith builds as we walk out the commandments of YAH because he begins to answer our prayers. Do not lean to your own understanding; follow the laws of YAH get to know the ENTIRE Bible.
