The Wedge of Doubt
The word, our power to express, communicate, think, and thereby create miracles in our lives, is a powerful force. And, one of our biggest obstacles in using our word creatively is that wedge of doubt hiding behind our thoughts.
Jesus, who clearly saw doubt as our great obstacle, told stories filled with promises for those who could overcome their wedge of doubt. He even went so far as to promise that if we could overcome our doubt and just have faith the size of a mustard seed, we could move a mountain.
A mountain can be anything that appears to be much bigger than we are capable of handling like: an incurable disease, the loss of a loved one, financial ruin, depression, the loss of a job, divorce, whatever makes you feel empty and separated from the God of your understanding, and has made you lose faith in your greatness.
With the analogy of a mountain, Jesus was teaching that once we remove that wedge of doubt from any condition or situation in our lives, and really believe, although our faith may seem small to us, we will be able to remove any mountain of negativity that threatens or scares us. In other words, if you don't have a wedge of doubt, not even a mountain can stand in your way.
Let me suggest three steps that will help you remove the wedge of doubt and build mountain-moving faith.
1. As soon as the crisis appears, recognize it but stay positive knowing without a wedge of doubt, that what you want is possible. Helen Keller, born deaf and blind, said, "no pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human Spirit."
2. Remember your previous success patterns and demonstrations because mountain-moving faith is always build on accumulated experiences.
3. Use your WORD, which always comes first in the creative process, to affirm your faith in the miracles you are seeking. You can affirm things like, Spirit am I, holy child of God, free of all limits, safe and healed and whole, or all my needs are abundantly supplied, or the good that I am seeking is seeking me now, or Divine Order is operating in every area of my life.
So the next time you find yourself facing some situation or condition that seems like an impossible mountain to climb, remember that there are no insurmountable problems for miracle-minded men and women of Faith.
