“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”
I’ve re-read this verse so many times today. The Lord’s message to us here is so simple, NOTHING, not.one.thing is too hard for Him. Yet, for some reason we doubt Him all the time. We don’t openly call it doubt because for me personally, I fully believe my God is big and able. I truly believe all that He says He is. But I’d be lying if I said I’ve never doubted who He is.
I’ve asked myself Is the same God of the Bible that performed miraculous things…is that God capable of helping me? Is He big enough for the grief and pain that I feel? Does He see little ole me?
The answers, by the way, are yes. Even when I can’t see it.
Doubt affects us all. The reality is that no one’s faith is ever perfect in this life. It’s part of living here in a broken world full of sin. But, if something isn’t perfect, you know what is possible? Growth and improvement. My faith is not perfect, so it can grow and become stronger.
Doubt is like a gap between our faith and perfect faith. There is nothing Christians cannot doubt. Sometimes we doubt our salvation, God’s love for us, the reliability of Scripture, the existence of God, or the identity of Christ. But Jesus is the bridge for our gap.
It’s easy on this side to think-Is God really big enough to handle my problems along with everyone else’s? Where is God in this?
He is everywhere, always. In all places, at all times, with us all.
