“Having Doubts…?”

One thing in the church is for certain, we are more comfortable with doubt than Jesus is. Jesus sees doubt as faithlessness, we see it as a natural reaction to things beyond our immediate control.We see doubt as something to be processed and slowly replaced by faith. Jesus sees doubt as the enemy of faith. He rebuked Peter for sinking in the waves because he doubted who Jesus was. “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Heb.11:1).Start to lose that assurance and conviction and you would best to cry out as Peter did, “Lord save me.”Everybody has faith and hope in something. The problem comes when one’s faith and hope are misplaced. Jesus is the focus of true Faith and Hope. It was his divine love through the cross that brought us into fellowship with God for eternity.Doubts will plague us as long as we see ourselves as citizens of this world. Working through the everyday trails of life with an eternal agender brings meaning to it all. Everything works for good because God is blessing the progress and the outcome.Doubts are spiritually lethal because they are the currency of the devil. Ironically, doubts bring a sense of comfort amidst fear. Doubts justify excuses. The work of faith stops dead!So, doubts must be crushed under the weight of conviction. When you put Jesus to the test, you will soon be confronted with truths too wonderful to completely grasp. When you see the Light of His Presence, your doubts will disappear with the darkness.John StaigerIf you have been blessed by this message, please feel free to: Like, Comment or Share it with your friends.
