DESPITE OUR DOUBTS
After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward.
For ten years, Abraham had been waiting for the son God has promised, the son from whom a nation would descend and take possession of the land of Canaan. Abraham feared he would not have a son and his destiny of becoming a blessing to the world would not be fulfilled. He began to question and doubt God.Regardless of our circumstances, our focus should be on who God is: totally trustworthy and utterly faithful.
Circumstances will often seem contrary to what God has promised, and when our focus is on our circumstances instead of God, fears and doubts will inevitably set in.
When we apply what we know about God, our focus changes and we begin to see things from a strengthened perspective.
Faith isn't not having doubts; faith is trusting God in the face of doubts and believing that what God is doing in actively working to fulfill His promises. We will face doubts in in times of sorrow and hardship.
It is natural to have fear and faith coexist, but we banish the fear when we plug the gaps of what we do not know about our circumstances with what we know about God.
The more we get to know God, the more our trust and confidence in Him will grow. We will be able to face turbulence, darkness and confusion, know that when we believe despite our doubts, God will always prove Himself true and trustworthy.
Almighty God, it is because You are faithful that we know we can trust You. As we face doubts and difficulties, never stop reminding us of who You are. I Jesus name. Amen
