God and the Doubter
If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.
2 Tim. 2:13 (NKJV)
Hey Christian, did you ever doubt God? Did you ever lack faith? Did you ever find yourself having moments of, God help us, UNBELIEF? And did that worry you to no end? Were you afraid that God would become weary of your wishy-washy ways and rid Himself of the likes of you?
What does God do when His child lacks faith? He remains FAITHFUL. He sees you through your doubt. He loves you even when you have those moments of weakness and unbelief. He does NOT kick you out of the family. He does NOT strip you of your Christianity. He does NOT turn His back on you.
For God to deny a Christian, He must deny Himself. He must deny His own Son, Jesus Christ, Whose righteousness is imputed to every believer. God will no more withdraw from the life of the weakest believer than the Father would deny the Son or the Son would deny the Spirit, Who indwells every believer.
If you really understand the faithfulness of God, the depth of His commitment to You, that knowledge will sustain you even through the dark times when you struggle with doubt. God's faithfulness alone has brought many a faithless Christian back to faith.
You can believe in God. He still believes in you.
A Prayer for Today: "Dear Father, I do believe, but I am having struggles with doubt. There are circumstances which I do not understand. There are things I am having difficulty accepting. But I know that You love me and that You are with me and that You are working in all these things for my ultimate good. Lord I believe. Help my unbelief. In Jesus' name. Amen."
