Word for Today: March 28

Hindrances to Faith

          Remember that Satan comes “immediately” to take away the Word-Seed before it has time to take root. 

And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.  Mark 4:15   

          It is easier for Satan to steal a seed or dig up a seed than it is for him to pull up a tree.  Satan is a thief and a robber.   Here are some real hindrances to great faith:

  • Seeing no evidence.
  • Having no feeling.
  • Considering facts and turning to human rea­soning.
  • Failures we have experienced in the past.
  • Dead religion, cold churches, denomina­tional doc­trine,
  • unbelieving preachers and teachers.
  • Our fear of man, relatives, influential friends, and what people may say.
  • Refusing the Gifts of the Spirit
  • Ignorance.
  • Unrenewed mind.
  • Negative mouth.
  • Doubt and wavering.
  • Love of the world. 
  • Impatience

          Strife, bitterness, unforgiveness, sarcasm, gossip, jealousy, envy, unkindness, anger, griping, self-pity, pride, hypocrisy, uncaring, no compassion, no love, greed, stinginess, egotism, no disci­pline, sense-ruled, appetite-ruled,  sight-ruled;   any of  the above will prevent our faith from developing.  They are hindrances to faith and they can only be dealt with and overcome by our deter­mination and prayerful effort. 

          The Revelation of Faith and the continual opera­tion of this revelation in the life of the Believer is essential if one is to Reign in Life.
