Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.
GOD WILL HELP US TO OVERCOME DOUBT
God promises to love us all day, every day. Our lives are God’s prayer. Sometimes we ask Him, “Why did you let me down? Why am I walking around in tears, harassed by enemies?” The answer for me is that sometimes I forgot to include Him and see things from His plan not, my perspective.
I HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO HELP OTHERS WITH THEIR DOUBTS WHEN I CAN
Watch your step, friends. Make sure there’s no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God. For as long as it’s still God’s Today, keep each other on your toes so sin doesn’t slow down your reflexes.
DOUBT STUNTS OUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH IN RECOVERY
If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves.
