Doubt

Doubting Thomas. The poor guy gets a bad rap. But his action shows us that our faith is based on a real Jesus, who actually lived, really died, and rose again just as he promised.

Sometimes things happen and our faith is shaken. Like, a loved one passes away, or gets seriously ill, or this whole uncertainty with COVID19. Jesus didn’t skel Thomas for doubting, but instead helped him see.

If you have doubts, don’t panic.
Remember that Jesus understands our humanness.
Doubt is not failure or even unbelief.
Ask Him to help you see, and just as He helped Thomas, He will help you too!

John 20:24-31 (https://bit.ly/2XCrUpM)

Doubt

Doubts. Nobody wants to admit it – but we all have them.

Yet throughout the Bible, people like Mary, Zechariah and Ananias all had doubts and God still used each one of them for His purposes.

Similarly, it’s OK for us to have doubts too. What matters is how we respond to them. These people didn’t let their doubts control them, but prayed to God about them and He revealed the truth to them. They trusted God in prayer and action in spite of their doubts.

Take your doubts to God in prayer. Trust Him and see what He does through you too.

Are you friends or enemies with your doubt? Check this quote out:

‘Whether your faith is that there is a God or that there is not a God, if you don’t have any doubts, you are either kidding yourself or asleep. Doubts are the ants in the pants of faith. They keep it awake and moving.’ (Frederick Buechner – Wishful Thinking)

Don’t get bleak if you sometimes doubt that God exists or hears your prayers. Let your doubt jump-start faith. Have the courage to ask God hard questions. God can handle our doubt – and can use even the smallest bit of faith you can find to do big things in you.

Does your faith in God feel a bit shaky today? Are you worried because maybe you’ve lost a bit of that AMAZINGLY DEEP sense of God’s presence you once had? Maybe these words reflect your life now: ‘my sins have surrounded me and I cannot see… I have lost all courage’ (Psalm 40v12)

A real kind of faith is not about desperately keeping up those cool-God-camp-vibes. It’s about keeping your life pointed towards God no matter how bad life gets. Keep calm! Carry on… toward God as best you can.

One of the best prayers to pray – at any time – is this: ‘Please, LORD, rescue me! Come quickly, LORD, and help me’
