One thing that never fails to rub me the wrong way is to listen to people whine and go on about “Why doesn’t God bless me?”, or “Why does ‘so-and-so’ get blessed and not me?”.
These are the same people that spend between one hour a day or one hour a week going to church or reading the bible, if that…
They then turn around and spend 4 to 12 hours a day filling themselves with doubt and unbelief by watching whatever garbage happens to be on the TV, radio, in some magazine, the latest gossip, or the like.
Then they have the audacity to wonder why their faith is not working?
You see, God has already done everything He’s going to do about solving your problem. He knew about your need long before you ever knew you had a need. Like any loving parent, He is more interested in seeing you prosper than you are.
God has provided a solution to your problem by His Grace.
All that is left to do is receive His Grace.
To receive what God has already given you, you must do so in faith.
First you need to know that God has already provided for you, and there is nothing you can do to earn it. This is how you get faith, it comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
Once you have the faith, the last thing that stands between you and the answer is doubt and unbelief.
The key is in overcoming doubt and unbelief. The best (and to my knowledge, only) way to do this is to:
1) Starve it out. Starve it out doubt by not feeding it. Eliminate avenues of doubt and unbelief into your life.
2) Drown it out. Keep God’s Word continually before your eyes, in your ears, and coming out of your mouth. Replace the unbelief with the surety that God is faithful to perform His word.
