The expression of doubt through our words is one of the things God hates. If you study the Bible carefully, you will find out that the Lord becomes very angry with doubting children. He wants us to trust and believe in Him. He wants us to follow Him, and know that it is well with us because He is Jehovah – the one who keeps covenants and promises. In the book of Hebrews, there is a question: But with whom was he grieved forty years… (Hebrews 3:17)
Was it the adulterers? Was it the idolaters? Was it the thieves? No. It was those who did not believe. You may be surprised, but God may be angry with you because of your lack of faith in His ability to bless you. Remember the story of the twelve spies. Ten of them said, “We cannot do it. It is not possible!” I call them the “Cannot-Do People”. (Numbers 12:31,32)
Notice here, that the words we are not able, are described by the Bible as evil. Words of doubt are one of the deadly poisons of the tongue. Observe that the ten spies poisoned the minds of multitudes of people with their “impossibility attitude”. There are some people who are filled with phrases like this: We can’t make it! It’s too late! It hasn’t been done before! it’s too expensive.. etc However, there is another group of people who will say: Go for it brother! It’s a great idea! It can be done! Nothing is impossible!
These are the types of words that Jesus wants to hear us say. We are a “Can-Do peope”. We can make it. God is on our side!
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Phil 4:13)
