THE WORD FOR TODAY
Judges 6:13 13 Gideon said to Him, “O my lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, ‘Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the LORD has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.”
DOUBT…just think about that word for a moment. It ain’t NO fun…because anyone who has ever gone through a period of doubt knows that it is dark, foreboding, and incredibly crippling.
Just ask Gideon, “Oh my lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us?” Doubt clouded Gideon’s eyes to the fact that God had promised His people prosperity as long as they were faithful to Him…but break faith with Him…they were promise problems. Doubt was clouding Gideon’s eyes.
We aren’t much different. Doubt is a powerful tool that satan uses to manipulated God’s people. In fact satan used doubt with Jesus in the wilderness to get Jesus to trust him more than God. We know that Jesus told satan where to go, “Get thee hense…for it is written.”
We must live life trusting God…being faithful to God and not doubting. For when we don’t doubt we live in victory and in hope and in faith. When we don’t doubt God can and will do amazing things in and through us.
I do not doubt that my God is near me all the time…my God is near me all the time.
Thank You Lord for being near me…thank YOU Lord for helping me…thank YOU Lord for the victory that is mine...thank You for the hope that helps me and YOUR grace that sustains me…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
