Doubting Thomas.....

Do you have a lot of doubt in your life?
Do you doubt others....doubt yourself....doubt God?
I think most of my self doubt!!!

I listened to a gentleman speak several months ago....and one of the things that he talked about was how, as we mature as Christians....we will know when it's God speaking to us about certain things.
I immediately thought to myself,
"well, I must not be a very mature Christian".  His statement made me start doubting "me"....because I'm not always sure when it's God speaking to me!! I?
Could it be that I do know it's God....but, I just allow the self doubt....or even Satan (who brings on the self doubt) cloud my judgment....and make me think that it couldn't possibly be God talking to ME...of all people?!?!?
Or...sometimes I think..."what will others think" if I say this, or do that...when the One Person I need to be the most concerned about my Savior!!!

Looking back on the times in the past few years that I "thought" it was God speaking to me....
....turns out.... was Him!!! 
Makes me wonder, though....about all those times that I didn't listen....and, instead I allowed something else....or, somebody interfere....what if I had "trusted and obeyed"....what would the outcome have been?

Mark 9:24 (NLT)
.....“I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  1. I feel exactly the same way, that doubt (Satan) does hang around. Great blog!
