When In Doubt..

When tragedy strikes your life, many ask God: “why did God let this happen?” “why didn’t God answer my prayer?”  We can even turn on ourselves and wonder if we did not have enough faith.  It is hard to share these insecurities with others and even with God.

I was ready Psalm 13 and it really gave a voice to all these painful questions.  God is not surprised by our struggles with doubt.  God is ready to help us and comfort us in these times.  God is always faithful to us.  It’s ok with God for us to talk openly with Him about our true feelings.

There is no doubt we live in a broken world.  God is our only hope.  When we feel like struggles are raining down on our lives, we have someone who stands with us.  Psalm 13:6 reminds us of what we should do and remember, “I will sing to the Lord, for he has been good to me.”

We all have times of doubt in our lives, but one thing we don’t ever need to doubt is God’s love for us.  God sent His son to die on the cross for us.  We did not deserve what He did for us, but God loved us so much He did this so we would not perish.  God wants to spend eternity with us, there is not doubt in my mind.

Pray and ask God to help you overcome your doubts.  God knows your struggles in this broken world.  Call to Him and He will comfort you and help you.  God wants us to know it’s ok to doubt for a time, but then we need to cling to Him for help and comfort through those times.

    Thanks for reminding me of Psalm 13. We all have despair at times and need relief just as David did. The Lord is so good to us.

    Thanks, Allie, for a great reminder. I have found that when, by His grace, I can choose faith over doubt, this turns a key to being able to receive His peace. The word “But” in the NIV version of verse 5 expresses that deliberate decision to choose faith in the face of what may look like reasons to doubt (“But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.”). Trusting Him leads to rejoicing in Him.
