Romans 10:10-For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
When you read Mark 11:23, you’ll find that Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him” (NIV). From this scripture, we understand that doubting in your heart dissipates faith.
Your mind may ask, “How is it going to work?” That doesn’t mean you’ve doubted in your heart. Faith will work in your heart, even whilst there’re doubts in your mind. The doubt that messes up your faith is the one that comes from your heart.
When arguments and reasonings arise in your mind against what you’ve believed and laid hold of by faith, all you need do is pull them down with God’s Word (2 Corinthians 10:3-5) Declare boldly and loudly that those things your spirit has taken possession of are yours already, and no devil can take them away from you.
On the other hand, if there’s doubt in your heart, it’ll nullify your faith and cause you to lose what your faith hitherto possessed. What you need at such a time is to get more information from God’s Word about the subject and remain steady and unflinching in your faith until you have the desired results.
Faith comes to your heart through God’s Word, therefore, fill your heart with the Word of God and there’ll be no place for doubt. Refuse to doubt when you’ve prayed. Learn how to receive and maintain strong faith
