""Let us hold fast the profession of
our faith without wavering (doubting); for he is faithful that promised"
DID YOU KNOW THAT GOD PROMISES US
Consider the following Bible Verses:
"Do not worry,
saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What
shall we wear?'For the pagans run after all these things, and
your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first
his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be
given to you as well." [Matt 6:31-33]
shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by
Christ Jesus." [Philippians 4:19]
The subject of supernatural provision is not a matter of debate about
the so-called "doctrine of prosperity". This is simply Biblical truth
regarding the promise of supernatural provision for the believer. And,
because this promise pertains to things we NEED, it may pertain to
anything starting with salvation, and including, deliverance, safety,
protection, healing and even material or financial needs.
But Let's Face Facts:
Ok, we can all agree that the Word of God 'promises' that He will meet
our needs, yet it is obvious that many (if not most) of the people of
God have a very poor record of actually 'seeing' their needs met in
accordance with the promise: Right?
SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
The problem is that the people of God are ignorant (lacking knowledge)
of just HOW to RECEIVE the manifestation of the promised blessing
of supernatural provision. Why? Because as with all things pertaining to
the Kingdom of God, supernatural provision must be received by Faith.
FAITH DOES NOT DOUBT:
"Have faith in
God: I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go,
throw yourself into the sea,' and DOES NOT DOUBT in his heart
but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him."
[Mark 11:22-23 NIV]
"But let him
ask in faith, WITHOUT WAVERING, because he who doubts is like
a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not
think he will receive anything from the Lord..." [James
"Let us hold
fast the profession of our faith without wavering (doubting);
for he is faithful that promised" [Hebrews 10:23]
Sid you notice that every one of the
above scriptures mentions FAITH and DOUBT? And did you also notice that
the one who wavers' will NOT see the promised blessing manifest
in their life?
WAVERING IS A BLESSING KILLER:
First we should understand the definition of the word "waver". According
to the dictionary the word waver means:
1] "To move unsteadily back-and-forth"
2] "To exhibit uncertainty or indecision"
FAITH on the other hand is the 'sure and certain belief'' in God and His
Word regardless of the outward the circumstance or situation.
FAITH AND DOUBT CANNOT EXIST IN THE SAME PLACE AT THE
One is either IN faith - or they are IN doubt and unbelief
- and whereas faith causes the promised blessing to manifest
[Heb. 11:1] - Doubt and Unbelief prevents it. [Heb. 3:19]
FAITH WITHOUT WAVERING:
"Therefore, since we have been justified through
faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through
whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we
now stand." [Rom. 5:1-2]
Notice that according to the above scripture that it is THRU faith that
we actually ACCESS or obtain the promises provided to us
by His grace.
"So, Let us hold fast the profession of our faith
without wavering (doubting); for he is faithful that promised;"
It is important to understand that The Biblical Word translated as
hope comes from the Greek word 'elpis'. 'Elpis' comes from the root
word 'pistis' translated as 'faith' in the New Testament. The New
Testament word 'hope' actually means 'confident expectation of the
good to come'.
So, when we are told to "hold fast to our profession of hope without
wavering", we are actually being told to 'confidently expect' the
manifestation of the promised blessing (good things), And moreover,
we are told to 'HOLD FAST' to that expectation WITHOUT
wavering (doubting) - no matter how the outward situation may appear.
THE AMPLIFIED BIBLE TRANSLATES HEBREWS 10:23 THIS WAY:
"So let us seize and hold fast and retain
without wavering the hope we cherish (Confidently expect to appear)
and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is
reliable (sure) and faithful to His word."
GOD IS FAITHFUL:
Remember that it is G-O-D that we are talking about, and
it is impossible for Him to lie. [Hebrews 6:18].
So, when we consider His promise that He will meet ALL our needs
according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus - then we are expected
to BELIEVE Him without question, without doubting and
without wavering between two opinions: (Whether or not He will
actually do it).
Consider the question posed to Israel by the prophet Elijah when the
people wavered between the God of Israel and Baal.
"Elijah went before the people and said, "How
long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow
him; but if Baal is God, follow him." But the people said nothing."
Many Christians today are in the same place.
They waver under pressure and never come to the place where they can
stand confident in God's promises. Instead, the go back and forth
between believing the promises, and doubting their
validity. They have two opinions: One opinion trusts God to DO
what He promises, and the other opinion is not so sure about it.
But! God has told us that it is those who believe WITHOUT
wavering that will SEE the promised blessing manifested in their
BE BUILT UP!
"And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to
the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give
you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified."
There is only ONE thing that will bring us to the place where we
are able to stand in the face of adversity, lack, sickness, or danger
and 'confidently expect' to see God's promise of deliverance, provision,
healing or safety manifest: The WORD OF GOD.
The world and all its afflictions can cause us to doubt, waver, and
become unsure of God's promises and the validity of His Word. But! "Faith
comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." [Rom. 10:17]
I encourage you brothers and sister to build yourself up in the Word
Build yourself up to the place where no matter how bad things look, no
matter how long things have been bad, no matter how bad you feel, you
are confidently expecting the promise of God's supernatural
provision to manifest in your life. Whether it be material or financial
provision, healing, deliverance, protection or safety; you are able to "hold
fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess
and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure)
and faithful to His word"
