Rodney Howard Browne explains how to handle doubt. Since religion is the center of our Christian experience, the effects of wavering religion are far-reaching. Unsure trust can lead us to make inaccurate calls. Though we get an answer to prayer, we’d think, I will not do that. So, rather than asking God to reinforce our religion, we create excuses for why we won’t obey. We may decide to delay our obedience – even indefinitely – or do something we consider just as worthwhile.
Rodney Howard Browne teaches us to obey with all our heart. Partial obedience is still insubordination, and it leads to mistakes. Not only can failing religion result in poor decisions, but it is also dear. The Israelites rambled 40 years in the desert as the country authorized unbelief to overtake their religion. Wavering ideology can make us miss out on the blessings of God ; they often prove dear to those we adore too. Our confidence also will be troubled by shifting religion. When we are spiritually unstable, we are going to be shaken by small things – even trivial matters. Rather than standing firm, we will find our confidence eroding. Then we become less ready to take the hazards God is asking of us.
Rodney Howard Browne teaches us to draw near to God. Instead of acting with certainty, we shall question and doubt what we are hearing from the Lord. We intend to also find joy lessening because our wavering faith has led us away from God’s will. The inner peace of God that we once enjoyed evaporates as our religion weakens. Irrespective of how unstable our religion is, God invites us to draw near so he will be able to buttress our trust in Him. When He does, give Him the glory. ( Romans 4:20-21 ).
