If you know you are serving an awesome God, do you have any room for doubt? In fact, it’s simple. All you have to do is trust and obey. Stop worrying and doubting and asking God so many “why’s”. Stop thinking what might go wrong. You’re God is all-powerful and all-knowing. The key is to know God every single day. You’ll be amazed at His surprises and promises for you.
Doubt is there. Sure. Let it last for only a second and realize how great and awesome the God you are serving. The more you know Him, the more you realise that, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10. Even “…long ago”, he already has plans for us. For sure, it is pleasing and perfect and also will glorify Him only. Besides, aren’t we living for Him and not for ourselves? When was it ever about us?
Sometimes doubt is just a way to test our faith. When you doubt about what God has planned for you, think about this, “Is your doubt greater than your faith? Or is it the other way around?” Knock, knock: reality check! It’s like setting aside your 10% for God but also at the same time thinking, “I could use this for something else more important. I’ll just tithe next month.” See the faith in there? The Bible says that even though our faith is as little as a mustard seed, it’s enough. How much more if our faith is bigger than our boulder-sized doubt?
Everything happens for a reason and that is God’s pleasing and perfect plan for us. He already planned it. Meaning, everything is already laid out in front of us. It might be a little unclear to see right now, but that is the whole point of faith. It is looking at Who holds your future, not What your future is ahead of you. If you can see everything right now, where does God fit it? How does His glory shine in your life if you do not experience everything in details?
If we can see what our future holds us right now, we will be complacent knowing that that’s our future. But if we do not know yet, what’s in store for us, we would be holding on to God every step of the way. We would experience Him in hard times and in good times. We would be able to see God’s glory in every ups and downs in our lives. We would see clearly how incredibly detailed His plans are for us, and we would experience it on the front seat.
Trusting God is more than just trusting Him. Trusting him is faith, discipline, prayer and obedience wrapped in one. Trusting Him is not only knowing that He has perfect plans for us, but trusting Him is experiencing how great He truly is! It’s your relationship with Him that’s strengthened. It’s knowing that although at this point in time everything is not making sense, you know that with God, you are okay and not alone. It’s not a journey all by yourself.
God is there to comfort you when you’re brokenhearted, to provide for you when you’re in lack, to be with you when you experience joy (even though sometimes we forget to thank Him) and so much more! He is basically with you every step of the way, sometimes we don’t notice it because we get too consumed with earthly things. If we learn to focus our eyes on things above, other things won’t matter anymore because we know we are secured in everything as long as we trust God.
So here I say to you…
Trust God and keep that faith firm on solid ground.
