“Doubt can be a tool in God’s hand wielded, in the lives of those who allow it for the strengthening, not the destruction of faith.” ~ George MacDonald
It’s hard to keep praying or walking forward in faith when you don’t get answers or see God’s guiding hand. Those difficult times often bring doubts which cloud our perspective. Does God see me? Does he hear me? Does he care? Many Christians are afraid to admit to having doubts— even to themselves—because they confuse doubt with unbelief.
We can doubt our doubts, meaning we question them without taking them at face value as they may appear to us, without living a doubting way of life. Doubt can be healthy if handled well. Doubt encourages rethinking. When handled correctly, through the grid of God’s word, doubt’s purpose should be more to sharpen the mind than to change it.
Doubt is never meant to be a permanent condition. Doubt should be one foot lifted, ready to step forward or backward. There is no motion either way until that foot comes down. Doubt can be used to pose a question, get an answer and push for a decision. The decision is a commitment to trust God no matter what life brings our way, that good or bad, God knows what’s best for us.
“I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
