The fearful and unbelieving

The word of God says that without faith it is impossible to please God. ( Hebrews 11:6) Faith is the building block of this walk of God. Believing, trusting, and hoping in God and knowing without a doubt that God will fulfill his word and promises. As a christian, its so important to trust in God regardless of the bleak circumstances. As I look back over my life, God has proven time and time again that if I acknowledge him he would direct my path. We can't doubt, murmur or complain against God. You may not verbally complain against God, but if your slow to obey God your heart is murmuring against him. The word of God talks about the evil heart of unbelief. God even sums up unbelieving and fearfulness with murderers and sorcerers and says the consequences of unbelief is death.
 Revelation 21:8
King James Version (KJV)
8But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
 Don't be fearful or anxious, while waiting on the Lord. Wait patiently for him. Psalm 37:7 Sometimes the enemy may try to discourage or hinder you to make you stumble or stagger at the promises of God. Don't let the enemy have his way. The word of God says he has give us POWER to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over ALL the power of the enemy. Luke 10:19. And sometimes we can hinder our ourselves. That why we must die to our flesh, so Christ can live through us and we can possess the mind and nature of Christ. See, if we had the mind of God, believing in God wouldn't be a struggle, we would just have simple confidence in Christ.
Philippians 2:13-15. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 14Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;"
