The Problem of Doubt
Posted by upliftingthoughts4u
When you pray and finish with “Amen,” your thoughts, words, and feelings have created a mold which God can fulfill.
Do you know that God hears you? Or does doubt assail your thoughts and emotions, like:
“I know God has more important matters to attend to.”
“Perhaps I only thought I was praying to God that can hear me, but it was actually only a busy signal on His phone.”
“I am unworthy to ask these things.”
“I am a hopeless, hapless sinner so why would God answer me?”
“Are you really there, God?”
“Can you even hear me?”
Many are the thoughts that can “water down” the effectiveness of your prayers if you continue to dwell on them instead of your prayer. Where is your focus?
Do you know that God is your loving Companion every day with whom you can share your thoughts and feelings, good or bad, knowing that there is no judgment on His part? Does He walk by your side every day, attending to your needs as well as your prayers?
Is this really a possibility…that His phone can never be BUSY and that He hears and cares about you personally?
Is He a living presence that accompanies you wherever you go, helping you every day to endure the daily wear and tear of daily life, comforting you when you are sad, ill, or feeling a loss? Does He rejoice with you when you are celebrating and happy? Some people think God is only needed when you are in distress of some kind.
I can readily assure you that God is there for you every step of the way, every minute…whether you are waking or sleeping. He is ready to listen and aid you in your hours of need or bliss.
However, the power of doubt can erase this connection so powerfully that you can actually believe all your negative doubts that are like those mentioned above.
If you think He is not there for you, He isn’t because you let go of His Guiding and Loving Hand.
You must choose what to believe—He can be your Companion, or you can be all alone in your misery. It’s all up to you.
God’s blessings on your journey.
