“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”
So you have probably figured out by now that God has been really dealing with my faith, or lack there of, lately. God has been doing some amazing things in my life lately. I am finding it really hard not to doubt and question, whether or not those things are for real and if they will really happen.
Here I am crying out for God to do something in my life and He does, and then I question the very thing I asked for….
Who has not done that though?
Along with asking God for something there has to come the ability to accept that what He gives you may not be exactly what you were thinking or picturing but it is always what you NEED!!!
I feel like the Jewish people must have thousands of years ago when they asked for a king and were sent a baby. (of course on a much smaller scale)
I have asked for something in my life and got the beginnings of that thing. It’s not that I’m not willing to work hard for what I want in my life it’s just that somehow I didn’t expect too.
Just as the Jewish people expected a king that would come and save them NOW, and not a baby that needed to be raised and taught and would save them later in a way they did not expect to begin with.
For some reason this very thing He has given me has somehow shaken me to the core and so God has been dealing with me, to have more faith.
” 3 Who is left among you who saw this temple in it’s former glory? And how do you see it now? In comparison with it, is this not in your eyes as nothing? … 9 The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts. ‘ And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.”
