Besides fear one of the biggest things I deal with is doubt. But if you actually think about it fear and doubt kinda go hand in hand. I know that I am not the only one that has faced doubt.
Recently I heard Pastor Randy (pastor at Faith Landmarks Ministries) teach on Abraham and his message really encouraged me. I had never really thought about Abraham in the way he was preaching about. He talked about how Abraham had doubt. He asked God questions wondering about his sovereignty. God responded for Abraham to look up at the sky and try to count the stars. Here is where I just get blown away. I never thought of Abraham as someone who questioned God. I just remember all the amazing stories of all the wonderful things he did.
Then Pastor Ed Young wrote a devotional about doubt I want to quote what he had to say. He referred to this scripture.
“Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. “Take away the stone,” he said.
“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”
Even Martha had doubt. And during that time the disciples saw Jesus over and over again doing miracles yet they still doubted.
So why am I talking about doubt like this. So what does this show us, everyone has doubts. So we have to make sure that every single day were building our faith so that when life comes at you and your tempted to doubt your faith in Him is so strong your able to remember how amazing Jesus really is. Remember his miracles but also remember what He did for us on the cross.
I write this blog no only to encourage all of you, especially my friends that I know are going through some really tough times. But also to remind myself of this truth.
With all of this medical stuff i’ve been going through its really easy to start listening more to your body and your systems. The body is loud but I have to make sure my faith is louder.
