No Doubt About It
Now Think On This
“When we see that you're just as willing to endure the hard times as to enjoy the good times, we know you're going to make it, no doubt about it.” 2 Corinthians 1:7, THE MESSAGE)
Life comes with doubts, no doubt about it. We wonder if we are going to “make it”; if our kids will make it; if the world will be here tomorrow; if the nation will end up being what we had hoped and prayed it would be.
No doubt about it. This is life. And life is hard often.
Even ones who had walked right alongside Jesus, day in and day out for over three years, had doubts, after His horrible crucifixion and tomb burial.
“But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples were saying to him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe." (John 20:24-25, NASU)
Having doubts is common, and we should not beat ourselves over the head when we have them. Rather, as we are encouraged to do, we need to keep trusting anyway.
Trust that what Jesus (Yeshua) said was true.
“Don’t let yourselves be disturbed. Trust in God and trust in me. In my Father’s house are many places to live. If there weren’t, I would have told you; because I am going there to prepare a place for you. Since I am going and preparing a place for you, I will return to take you with me; so that where I am, you may be also. Furthermore, you know where I’m going; and you know the way there.” (John 14:1-4, CJB)
When you are anxious about your job – keeping trusting in Him.
When you doubt your marriage or whether you will even get married – keep trusting in Him.
When the rent or mortgage is due next week and your bank account has nothing – keep trusting in Him.
Many in life have nothing to fall back on. Those without hope cannot trust anything or anyone, for without Jesus there is no hope. Without the Solid Rock, which isn’t just a cliché, there is no solid rock.
But for those of us who do know Jesus, who know of His salvation, the miraculous times He came through for us, the hope within of life here and forevermore – we cannot doubt for long. We have the solid hope and assurance of today’s and tomorrow’s provision in spirit, soul and body.
Next time you have doubts – and there will be a next time, for the enemy continually bombards the Lord’s chosen ones – be reassured that your life is in His hands, He has not forsaken you, and what He has promised will come to pass.
Believers in Yeshua (Jesus) will always have a reason to believe – because our Lord and Savior has time and time again proven Himself Faithful on behalf of the nation of Israel, His worldwide Church, and all those who keep their eyes fixed on Him.
“…looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2, NKJV)
No doubt you will have doubts, but you will always have the eternal hope in Jesus. Keep strong in His Word.
