And He said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts? Luke 24:38
All of us struggle with doubt. We struggle with the promises of God when the going gets tough and the future seems uncertain. Some of our doubts appear in moments of weakness and disappear through the assurances of the scripture, or during times of prayer.
Other doubts stay with us so long that they become a part of our lives. Over time, we become used to them and even fail to notice them anymore. Just because they are unnoticed, however, does not mean they do not impact us. Crises have a way of revealing our uncertainties and doubts.
• Doubt impacts on our relationship with the Lord. Every relationship thrives on trust. We cannot have intimacy with God or please Him when we doubt what He says. To benefit from our relationship with Him we must trust what He says and have full confidence that He will honour His promises. Without sure belief, our relationship with God suffers.
• Doubt hinders our prayer life. It short-circuits our faith and renders our prayers weak and ineffective. If we believe God and do not doubt Him, we will have the privilege of experiencing His power to do things that are considered unattainable in the natural. When we walk in faith, we open ourselves up to a life of miracles, signs and wonders.
• Doubt also hinders our service to God. How many of us have neglected to answer God's call because we questioned our ability? How often have we hesitated to share the Gospel because we were unsure of having the right words?
Spend time feeding on the word of God and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal the trustworthiness of the Word of God to you.
Also, ask the Holy Spirit to help you exclude your doubts and exercise your faith in the Word of God
God bless you!!!
