Believers are not immune to doubt. It may occur momentarily following our thought that a prayer has been unanswered or after a situation fails to improve when we expect; this is to name a few examples. However, doubt is problematic because it may affect our relationship with the Lord. When faced with uncertainty, we can choose to trust God and have faith that He wants the best for us.
And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. – Matthew 21:21
When we decide to believe God and have faith, we will be enabled to accomplish what others may think is impossible.
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. – Hebrews 11:6
Doubt opposes faith and can cause spiritual uncertainty. If we want to please the Lord we need to have faith; this is necessary.
Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. – Jeremiah 32:17 (NKJV)
We do not need to give in to doubt even we go through difficult trials because nothing is too hard for God, our creator.
