Faith Without A Second Thought
But ask in faith, never doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind;
James 1:6 NRSV
To have doubts within us is quite common, we doubt situations, doubt others, and doubt our own self most of the time. There are times when we doubt our own abilities and are so overwhelmed. We see many Biblical characters who doubted, but God did not leave them to their doubts. Moses, Jeremiah, Job, Gideon, Barak, and Thomas are a few well-known people who doubted God’s work but yet God did not fail them. In our lives, troubles and failures cause doubt, but when everything seems alright and when blessings are gushing in like a flood. we seem to rejoice and we continue to test God as though we have nothing to worry about. I’m sure we’ve all come across those unavoidable situations where our faith is tested and we are challenged to trust God through it, we are stuck and we don’t know how to solve them. That is where we have to trust Him and fully rely on Him, as we test His wonders, so does He test our faith!
Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”
Matthew 14:31 NRSV
When we let fear take over our faith, doubt seeps in and there seems to be no way out. I always say that “Faith and Fear can not co-exist” it is ours to choose! I’ve seen so many people, especially servants of God who stand firm in their faith, but in just a small circumstance they come with assumptions, doubts, and what-if’s, their faith is tossed in the air and they give way to fear to make a home in their hearts. If we are called for Kingdom work, we have to learn to trust Him in all circumstances, irrespective of what comes our way, we need to have a faith that is crazy in the sight of others. Our God is greater to turn our doubts and failures into miracles and mysteries. He is a God of Wonders and He will prove His Glory through us.
Don’t let your doubts rule you, let your Faith shine!
Father, I pray that you’d help me to overcome every doubt and failure. Help me to trust you even through trials and temptations. I know you’re in control, thank you for your unfailing love.
It is so by Faith, and by Faith so it is. AMEN❤
