Today's Devotional Scripture

Today's Verse
What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God's faithfulness? Not at all!
Romans 3:3-4 NIV
Thoughts on today's verse...

Sometimes when we bring our doubts and fears into the presence of God, we may fear that He won't hear us because our faith is weak or lacking. That just isn't so! Look at some of those who walked with God in the Old Testament. I like the example of Job. He lost everything. His companions were convinced that he had sinned against God. His wife told him to "curse God and die." Yet he continued to pour out his troubles, his doubts and fears to God. He railed against God. Yet when he finished his lamenting and wrestling with his faith, he found a faith that was even and ever stronger than what it was before all his troubles began. That's the kind of faith I want! I want to be able to tell God I have doubts and concerns, because if I don't that will drive me from the heart of God.

Do you doubt that God loves you? Do you doubt that He cares? Do you doubt that He will be able to see you through any and all circumstance? Do you doubt that He even exists and that faith is even real? Take all those doubts to the foot of the cross. God can be trusted with your doubts and fears.

My prayer...

Father God, there are days, there are moments, there are times when my faith wavers. I wonder if all I believe is true and if You have redeemed me through the blood of Christ. May I be courageous enough to pour out my heart to You. Then I ask that You surround me with Your peace and calm my heart. In Jesus name I pray ~Amen!

Yours, because we're His,
