We’ve all done it. We’ve all thought it. We’ve all said it.
What if I put all of this effort and time into losing weight, and it just doesn’t happen?
What if I work really hard, watch what I eat and start exercising and I don’t lose anything?
What if I lose weight and in six months, gain it all back?
Romans 3:3 says, “For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect?”
And we know the answer to that question! The answer is NO! Just because someone does not believe, doesn’t mean that God isn’t faithful and that His Word isn’t true. What it does mean is that the person who doubts is ignorant and will miss out because of their unbelief. “What if?” is a question than cause you to miss out on the benefits of whatever you are questioning.
So, don’t be ignorant! Do not doubt! Instead do as Jesus said…
In Matthew 21:21 – Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done.”
In other words, have faith in what it is that you desire and you will do and have even more than what you want!
In summary – do not doubt, only believe! The only “what if” you should ask is, “What if I don’t make the attempt; then what will happen?” and I can tell you the answer…”ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!”
