God gives us more than we deserve

Doubt is a familiar state for many of us. In fact, some of us are prisoners to our doubt. I know a lot of people who are crippled by their doubt, and it makes me so sad to see because I know God wants them to be free from it.

Mark 11:23 says that “whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

Every person I know has “mountains” in their lives that they want to see moved. And God can do it! James 1:6 says “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”

Some people take that verse to mean that God won’t answer our prayers if we don’t have full faith in His response, but that’s not true! Sometimes God will answer your prayer anyway. He is a good God, and He will do whatever it takes to encourage you to believe in Him and let go of your doubt.
