Seeds of Doubt
Seeds of Doubt
(#109 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
Father, it is with a heart (mind) of remorse that I come, regret for all mankind. Why are we so quick to turn? Why is it so easy to forget? When water is turned into wine, how sweetly we rejoice. When the wine is gone, we wonder if You would, or even could, do it again. When You heal the blind, we stand back in wondrous awe. Then, soon after, we wonder if You would do it for us. We see You turn the darkness into light and make crooked paths straight before us (Isaiah 42:16), yet, we sinfully wonder if You will take us all the way, as You promise?
Oh Father, if there are seeds I do not want to sow; they are the seeds of doubt. Why are we like this? What is in us that continually forgets, or chooses to doubt, that You have promised to cover us from beginning to end? Yes Father, it seems to bring You glory when the seeds of doubt are majestically overcome by faith, but it’s the doubt that burdens me. Doubting You hinders my growth. My unbelief dishonors You and for that I apologize.
Show me the way Father. Again, I hand You all of the seeds of doubt until they are no more. Please take them Father. Let the ground on which I have scattered them become parched, and till the new soil of my heart with Your presence (Jeremiah 4:3-4).
When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. And Yahshua came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” (Matthew 28:17-18)
