Doubt is part of life

Daily Thought

Your Word for 19 April 2024

Hebrews 4:16
‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

Nothing in life is sure. Everything can change and constant change is what we have to adjust ourselves to. But there are certain things that can be trusted completely. The market may go up and down, governments may come and go and we can still trust God completely. God is the one sure thing in life even though we sometimes may doubt. When it comes to trusting God we should not entertain doubt.
Even the disciple’s of Christ doubted. They had worked with God and seen the wonders that He had performed.  They knew Jesus first hand and yet they doubted.  Even after what He told them would happen happened, they still doubted.

Luke 24:38-41 “Why are you frightened?” He asked. “Why do you doubt that it is really I? Look at My hands! Look at My feet! You can see that it is I, Myself ! Touch Me and make sure that I am not a ghost! For ghosts don’t have bodies, as you see that I do!” As He spoke, He held out His hands for them to see the marks of the nails, and showed them the wounds in His feet. Still they stood there undecided, filled with joy and doubt.

If the disciples doubted, it is no wonder that we doubt. From time to time we will doubt.  If I look at the number of references to the issue of doubting, I see that many times people doubted. Both in the Old and New Testament we see how the issue of doubt is addressed.
Doubt is a natural thing that can creep into our lives. From time to time we will be challenged by doubt.  The issue is just how we will handle this. Will we entertain the doubt or will we respond and not allow doubt to get a foothold in our lives?
