The Illogical act of doubt
As insane as it would be to doubt the scorching nature of the sun or the impeccable colours of the rainbow that’s how illogical it is to doubt God, especially when you know that He does exist (and He does).
In one of my previous posts, No desire to worry I tried to establish within us an understanding of why we should permanently shut up every desire to want to continually doubt God and His promises, using Abraham’s faith as something to hold on to. Actually enough with the over emphasized talk on trust, faith, believing… it makes people aware of the “so called struggle” involved in just believing God. They see an inability and thereby conclude that it’s impossible for such to be. It’s in this you hear people expressing a lot. “I don’t know how to trust God, and my problems are just way too overwhelming”. So much focus is placed on these problems & needs that we tend to forget or belittle He that is seated above; in the heavens lies the maker and coordinator of Heaven, earth and all that dwells within.
You know what’s really the problem? – Some of us don’t really believe in God… Too tough to take in? And a few others have attached their faith to those fickle emotions (one of which I was guilty of). Here’s a conversation I had with a fellow believer?
Me: I don’t like the way various religions are springing up
Fellow believer: No, don’t say that. You do not know for sure if yours is even the
Wait a second!!!
Her response proved so much, and I’m sure she’s not the only one who thinks that way. A person’s inability to come to this conclusion is the sole reason we are pushed to doubt. We are not yet fully convinced on the actuality of His existence because it is heartily illogical to doubt what you already know exists. Being settled on the reality of God births out trust, love and faith that needs no struggling or effort – eliminating fear and any form of doubt. Begin to separate yourself from all the mediocrity. God’s not guessing so why should we. Read Hebrews 6:17-19
Bible reference Hebrews 6:17-19 NIV
17 because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of His purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, He confirmed it with an oath
18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.
19 We have this hope as an ANCHOR for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain.
