Can God guide You?

 As Christians, ‘’we” life by the word, Joshua 1:8 ‘’This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.” God has already given every Christian a gateway to a successful life. To live a successful, prosperous and victorious life, you need to meditate on the Word day and night, get the Word into your spirit, then you are sure of a successful foundation.

Gone are the days when the Israelites have to move to Jerusalem to pray or kill animals when they needed God to forgive their sins or  move to mountains when they needed to talk to God. The new Christian life is, ‘’Christ in you, the hope of glory.” To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). God is no longer ‘’Emmanuel” (God with us); but ‘’God in us.” This is today’s truth. You can now receive life, grace and salvation to a dying and hurting world.

Our lives as Christians is based on faith. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able to perform. (Romans 4:19-21). Without faith it’s impossible to please God. We can also see the might of faith in Mark 11:23 ‘’truly I say to you that whoever tells this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart but has faith that what he says is going to occur, he will have it so.” When you make a faith proclamation, for example in your life, family or  business, it’s not your place to wonder how it’s going to happen, that’s God’s job. Yours is to focus and refuse to doubt in your heart. Are you focusing and refusing to doubt that God is able to bring His promises into existence in your life?

Dealing with doubt in your mind. ‘’For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5). The strongholds the Bible is referring to here are arguments, theories and even facts that have been set by man. But 2 Corinthians has shown us that we can defeat all these with the weapons of our warfare: our divine utterances, speaking in other tongues, and our bold proclamation of the written word of God.

Dealing with doubt in your mind. Having doubts in your mind means being double-minded. James says ‘’…he that wavered is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways” (James 1:6-8). If you find out that, you are always having a double mind when you pray, then what you need to do is to strengthen your faith. And you do this by putting your faith to work. The more you put your faith to work, the stronger it becomes and the stronger your faith becomes, the more you will see God at work in your life fulfilling the promises that He’s spoken in your life!
