Day 10: Believing Doubt


When DOUBT seeps in

it becomes BELIEF,

because

DOUBT BELIEVES

that you

DOUBT GOD.

To DOUBT~

NOT BELIEVING GOD

because

DOUBT DOUBTS GOD'S PROMISE.

Yikes.

GOD opened my heart to this truth,

as I have been having my own pity party

the moment I invited

DOUBT!

Oh I BELIEVE GOD

until

I begin growing weary in the

WAIT,

that leads to my becoming a

VICTIM

of my circumstances,

so

woe is me is my chant

because

DOUBT sees IMPOSSIBLE!

Have you been there?

You TRUST GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART,

yet are LEANING ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING,

so that TRUST becomes DOUBT!

Ouch!

GOD woke me up today

with the ANSWER to my prayer,

which was not the ANSWER that I thought HE would ANSWER~

"STOP DOUBTING and TRUST ME".

Hmm.

Oh how quickly I forget my own words to

TRUST GOD & WAIT PATIENTLY & WATCH EXPECTANTLY,

as they quickly become

DOUBT GOD & WAIT IMPATIENTLY & WATCH UN~EXPECTANTLY

because

WAITING feels so UNPRODUCTIVE

so that I then question GOD~

What if GOD didn't REALLY hear me?

What if there is something else that I can do?

Maybe I am not supposed to

WAIT for GOD

and help HIM along?

So am I REALLY TRUSTING GOD with my PRAYER,

if I keep DOUBTING in the WAIT?

It is hard to admit,

but I am not REALLY TRUSTING GOD,

because I am WAITING IN DOUBT.

Oh how DOUBT overtakes you

when you forget to

TRUST IN THE LORD with ALL YOUR HEART

because you are

LEANING ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.

TRUST is LEANING on GOD'S UNDERSTANDING

because

GOD UNDERSTANDS

you and I

more than we can UNDERSTAND ourselves.

And because

GOD UNDERSTANDS,

HE IS

working ALL THINGS for the GOOD

for those who LOVE HIM*,

even when it appears as if GOD is sleeping on the job.

Oh GOD'S UNDERSTANDING

is UNFATHOMABLE to our little human minds~

"Oh, the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of GOD! How unsearchable are

His judgments and UNFATHOMABLE HIS ways" (Romans 11:33)!

Who can FATHOM the mind and ways of GOD?

NO ONE.

But who can BELIEVE THE PROMISES

that are

PROMISED

from

our UNFATHOMABLE GOD?

You, me, everyone.

If GOD's UNDERSTANDING is beyond our

UNDERSTANDING

and if

GOD WORKS ALL THINGS FOR THE GOOD

for those who LOVE HIM *(Romans 8:28)

then

will you join me and put a stop to

DOUBT

by

TRUSTING

that GOD goes beyond UNDERSTANDING,

as HE is doing something in our hearts

that is UNFATHOMABLE IMMEASURABLE ~

"Now to HIM who is able to [carry out HIS purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to HIS power that is at work within us, to HIM be the glory in the church and in CHRIST JESUS throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen"

( Ephesians 3:20-21).

Therefore,

Good-bye

DOUBT

for

I am TRUSTING the

"GOD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE"

(listen to the song below)
