DoubtsWednesday, April 18, 2012
God understands that we will have times of doubt. He is a loving God and He welcomes us to come to Him, even with our weak faith. His word tells us that the mustard seed, though very tiny, will grow into a great plant when encouraged. So, likewise, when we come to Him, with faith as small as a mustard seed, He will strengthen and reassure us! I encourage you, if you enter into a time of uncertainty, to first pray. Ask God to strengthen your faith and remove your doubts, just as the father in the passage above did. Open God’s word and listen for His voice to speak to you through its pages. Think back over the times when God has been a tangible force in your life. Remember the miracles, the answered prayers – and the blessed “coincidences” that happen just at the right time. Mark them down and make a record of them. God has been writing our testimonies our entire lives…let’s remember them, share them, and be encouraged!
The result will be that as we remember and share with thanksgiving the things that God has done in our lives, our mustard-seed faith will grow strong. He will encourage us through our praises of Him and as we glorify His name, our doubts will disappear…for everything is possible for one who believes!
Placing my trust in Him,
