Pushing away doubt, fear and worry

I often say how I believe God can do anything. For a while I was praying for a resurgence of the impossible in my life until the Lord stopped me and opened my eyes. He showed me that the impossible was still there. It’s around me. It’s happening. Every day the impossible points it head out the window of Heaven and I either invite it to come into my day or I look at it from a distance. It has to do with the measure of my faith in any given day. I was directed to pump up my faith and be sure it expands every day. Some life events tend to shrink our faith or better said we react to some life events with fear and doubt that gnaw at our faith. I was in prayer once and the Spirit of God told me to resist “dfw”. “DFW” stands for doubt, fear and worry. It’s a deadly combination that destroys our faith. The more passive we are when dealing with “dfw”, the less we will have access to the impossible made possible by the Lord. How much “dfw” are you dealing with every day? What do you do to defeat “dfw”? Those are two questions that we should answer. Recognizing that we have doubt, fear and worry is a great start. God is still the God of the impossible. We are the ones who need to work on deleting the “dfw” in our lives so we can move into a higher dimension of the impossible.

 

God is always with us. God is always near us. He is always around loving us, protecting us and blessing us. He can do anything and He can bless us with anything. The key is for us to trust and believe Him. Jesus couldn’t perform miracles in places where people didn’t believe in Him. The Son of God, the Almighty Lord couldn’t do the impossible where people thought it truly was impossible. They needed faith to have their eyes opened to the miracle working power of the Lord. Now, the Lord cannot perform miracles in our lives when we don’t have that faith activated. Grace and mercy come into play at times and we see the impossible unfold before our very eyes but faith is what should get us there. Without faith we can’t please God. Doubt, fear and worry are the main three agents whose mission is to keep us from living in faith. I recommend finding out the areas where these three negative agents are the most operational in your life. What do they look like when they manifest? How easy do they get in? What doors are allowing them to come in? Sometimes it’s the door of past negative experiences. Sometimes it’s what we hear every day that serves as a negative entryway. Sometimes it’s the lack of the Word of God in our lives that is a door of obstruction. Sometimes overthinking is the main door. Whatever door is giving the negative agents a way in should be dealt with. Name those doors and face them. You are not alone. God is with you. Include Him in the process of facing “dfw.” Great results will ensue.

 

The goal is to fill your spiritual sphere with lots of faith builders and positivity. Faith builders are all the elements you need to keep your faith strong. A faith builder can be a person, a message, a song, a prayer, a period of time, an action, a thought. Anything and anyone that builds up your faith is a faith builder or helper. It’s strongly recommended that we frequent faith helpers as much as possible. The enemy will always vouch to occupy your spiritual sphere and poison it with negativity such as “dfw.” The more your sphere is filled with faith builders, the stronger you will be when you get assaulted by “dfw.” Address every injection of poison from the enemy. If you doubt that God can help you, deal with the doubt and proclaim that God is on your side. If you fear that something bad is going to happen to you, deal with the fear and declare that God is your refuge. If you worry that you won’t have enough money, deal with the worry and say that God is your provider. Don’t let the “dfw” grow in you. Put it down every time it rises up. You might have to do it a hundred times but it will become easier. The more you do it, the more faith you will have. Before you know it you will be trusting the God of the impossible. He can do all things. No “dfw” is bigger than He is. Push away doubt, fear and worry. Put some distance between you and the terrible trio. Keep your hopes up. Stay positive in the Lord. Let that positivity dominate your thoughts and it will keep your emotions in check. With the Lord you can push away the “dfw” even if it comes back a hundred times a day. God is on your side. He can make the impossible possible. Stay encouraged!
