30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!” 31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”

Matthew 14:30-31 NKJV

As Paul said, we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places (Eph. 6:12). Many of us believe our enemy is the person we can see but that’s not your enemy. Oftentimes is the case that your greatest enemy is the one you see looking back at you in a mirror.

Some of you might say, “but Pastor, you always say that Satan is our great adversary.” Yes, the devil is our great adversary but the greatest weapon he wields is turning you and yourself. The spirit of doubt is the great enemy of faith. What I mean by this is that faith always desires to move forward. What does doubt desire to do? Doubt desires to stay back or to sit still.

When doubt entered Peter’s heart he nearly plummeted to his death if not for Jesus catching him. When the spirit of doubt is trying to make its home in you, I encourage you to put your eyes on Jesus. When your eyes are on Christ, He will fill you with all confidence. With that confidence, you will be able to move mountains and overcome all obstacles on your path.
