We Should be Unafraid to Doubt.

But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a spirit.And He said,“Why are you troubled, and why are doubts rising in your hearts? Look at [the marks in] My hands and My feet [and see] that it is I Myself. Touch Me and see; a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see that I have.” Luke 24:37-39 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Think of it?

Here was the living breathing Christ standing before His disciples. They saw Him and heard Him yet still doubted it was Him.

Do you think that is absurd?

I do not. How would you feel if you were there?

There has been so many times in my Christian walk that have been filled with doubt. Sometimes it was the direction in which the Holy Spirit was leading me in service unto my Heavenly King, even though, it had been made bluntly clear to me.

There have been many times when enduring intense trials and tribulations I doubts Jehovahs strength to get me through it even though He made it point blankly blunt He was walking through it with me.

There having been numerous times when in spiritual or physical famine that I doubted Jehovahs providence for me even though there were countless experiences in the past to reflect upon to believe Him and to trust Him.

Now on the other side of it our faith in Him become more solidified in our hearts and minds.

Any Christian that says they have never doubted Jehovah is a flat out liar. Any Christian that tells you it is a sin to doubt Jehovah has never truly been put through the fire, they know not of what they are speaking.

“If ours is an examined faith, we should be unafraid to doubt….There is no believing without some doubting, and believing is all the stronger for understanding and resolving doubt.” Os Guinness

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your loving patience during the times of doubt and for using these experiences to cement my faith ever stronger in You. You are such an awesome Father in Heaven to this child You love so much here on earth. I praise You in the name of He who never doubted You Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. Yes, as a human we all doubt God’s goodness. “The Church is a hospital for sinners. Not a museum for saints.” I can’t remember who said that. But we all come empty-handed to our Maker but He is there for us. 🙂

  2. Only perfection has no doubt, and God’s Word tells us we will never be perfect. God has always used any doubt I have ever had to strengthen my faith. Thank you Joseph for your honesty in this post. Lord, thank You for continuing to bless Joseph.

  3. Absolutely. Doubt means a person is thinking, is pondering, is reaching out. God meets us in our questioning. God wants us to come to Him as we are, and that includes our doubt. Thank you for this reassuring post.

    • You are very welcome. If we never doubted we would never be human. It is a part of our God given make up. He uses that to draw us ever closer to Him through the doubt and healing from it.
