Why Do You Doubt? Do you know Who He is?
Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. Matthew 8:25-26
I love the fact that although the time that we live in is full of complexities–many hypotheses and theories–the plan of Salvation remains simplistic in that a child is able to comprehend its complete meaning based on faith.
“It is by faith that God’s mighty power is released into the life of a Christian (Heb. 11:13-16). The fact that you have doubts indicates that you do not know God as you should.” Excerpt from Day to Day Devotional
Lack of a personal relationship with God (which is my responsibility) is the reason for all of my doubts (my fears, anxieties, worries, sleepless nights, mistrust, depression, dark times)?
Have you ever been accused of doing something that you were innocent of? Most of us can answer yes to that question; however, if you doubt God, then you are the guilty person.
It is only by possessing faith which is totally believing, trusting and obeying God that He is able to unleash His mighty power in your life.
Reflect on God’s amazing faithfulness by thinking about the countless times He has brought victory to your life.
If this is true, then why do you still doubt Him? This is an open-ended question that only you can answer; even so, the obstacle is faithlessness and only you have control over that aspect of your life.
Challenge for today: O taste and see that the Lord is good: Blessed is the man that trusts in him. Psalm 34:8
Prayer for today: Dear God, I am responsible for my lack of faith. You have proven over and over again that you love me and I ask you to forgive me for doubting your great faithfulness. It is my desire to have a strong and personal relationship with you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
