WITHOUT A DOUBT

"...and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says" (Mark 11:23)

 

Can God heal me? Without a doubt. Can He pay off my mortgage? Without a doubt. Is my business going to boom this year? Without a doubt. "Doubt sees the obstacles, faith sees the way. Doubt sees the darkest night, faith sees the day. Doubt dreads to take a step, faith soars on high. Doubt questions, "Who believes?" Faith answers, "I!" Brother, can you spare a doubt? Sorry, don't have one. I'm without a doubt. That's the way to face tomorrow; without a doubt. The Greek words for doubt are diakrino and distazo, the first meaning a division or wavering in judgment and the second, a wavering in stazo, that is, tottering in state or stance. Both begin with "di", division. Thomas was the classic doubter in the Bible. He's known as doubting Thomas. His nickname was Didymis (John 21:2), meaning a "twin". It too, has the "di" prefix. By "twin", it meant there were two people living inside him, the doubter and the believer.

 

We all have a little Didymus in us, but the goal is to live without a doubt. Notice that doubt and double share the same root. The doubter looks through dubious eyes. He's cross-eyed, has double vision. "If it be thy will...if it not be thy will". He can never figure it out because he waffles back and forth listening to man's opinions and shifting his own center. It's a matter of pray by poll. James said that when we pray, "Let him ask in faith, nothing wavering..." (James 1:6) Prayer must be without a doubt. "A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways" (James 1:8). The Greek there is obvious, diapsuchos, two souls, a mental and spiritual schizophrenic.

 

The reason for the waffling is a lack of concentration. Jesus said our eye is to be "single" (Matthew 6:21). If you want straight corn rows don't point the tractor at the cow that is grazing in the pasture, fix it on an unmoving fencepost. The word of God never swerves. "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee" (Isaiah 26:3). Without a doubt, faith must focus. Einstein never claimed to be smarter than others, he just claimed an ability to stay focused longer than others. Chalk in hand, he could solve any math problem posed because he knew how to concentrate. A laser beam is concentrated light. It can burn a hole through metal. And in our text, Jesus said the person of faith could command a mountain to be removed and cast into the sea but it only happens when spiritual authority is executed...without a doubt. Listen to the Living Bible's paraphrase of James 1:8, "...and every decision you make will be uncertain, as you turn first this way, and then that. If you don't ask with faith, don't expect the Lord to give you a solid answer". Abraham "staggered not at the promise..." Can God give a hundred-year-old man a son? Without a doubt. This is a whosoever promise, "whosoever shall say to this mountain", and whosoever means you and me. So crank up your earthmoving equipment. Be ready to take cover for your prayers have more power than dynamite. This mountain shall be removed. Do you really believe that, Kris? Without a doubt!
