WHY DO WE DOUBT GOD?

January 15, 2020

 

GENESIS 18:13-15 And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, when I am so old?’ 14 Is anything too difficult for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” 15 Sarah denied it however, saying, “I did not laugh”; for she was afraid. And He said, “No, but you did laugh.” (End of excerpt)

 

Sarah's laugh reminded me of how we doubt God. I love the Lord's response "Is anything too difficult for the Lord?" 

 

Doubting is the measure we give to God in His ability to provide, rectify, resolve, settle, secure, accomplish, bring to fruition, complete, fulfill all that concerns us. If there is anyone in heaven or on earth that we can trust it is God. By why the doubting?

 

Why would we attribute our doubting to God as He is the One who created all things including us? I believe that in the back of our minds we think God is going to abandon us, turn His back per say, painting His character to become an unloving God, unable to control all that is taking place in our moment of time. We transfer our inabilities onto Him as if He is not able to execute the realities of our lives. 

 

He gives us the command to pray without seizing and yet do we believe that our prayers will be an instrument of intervention in all given situations? Sometimes God moves on our behalf and other times He asks us to move in His wisdom and discernment. As we draw close to God, He draws close to us and our faith soars as we grow in our relationship with Him. 

 

God says nothing is too difficult or too hard for Him. When He says nothing, He means nothing. Galaxies, stars, the sun, moon and sky, all creation and creatures on earth can attest to that. We are to never minimize God with our minimal faith, rather let our faith be enveloped in God's greatest and marvelous light to know nothing is impossible with Him.  

Psalm 138:8 The Lord will accomplish what concerns me;Your lovingkindness, O Lord, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
