Thought Of The Day, “Doubts”, Men’s Daily Devotion

Men’s Daily Devotion, Doubts


Thought of the day:

Then Elisha said, “Hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord : ‘Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.’ ” So an officer on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God and said, “Look, if the Lord would make windows in heaven, could this thing be?” And he said, “In fact, you shall see it with your eyes, but you shall not eat of it.” And so it happened to him, for the people trampled him in the gate, and he died. Reference 2 Kings 7:1-2,20 NKJV

Isn’t it sad that a man who seen the work that The Lord did through Elisha would question what was said? Because he was one that worked closely with the king, he had witnessed who Elisha was. Elisha had several dealings with the king as did most prophets of the day. You would think that the evidence would show who was truly sent from The Lord and who wasn’t.

Because he had doubts, this officer missed out on how God worked in this time of famine. He didn’t get to enjoy the provisions from God.

We need to look at how maybe doubt keeps us from seeing God’s Hand in our situations. Doubt can become a blinder to God’s Love for us. It will fill our minds with lies like, “God does not Love me” or “God must be mad at me”. These are the things that will keep us miserable.

We need to remember that God does Love us. He doesn’t want us to be filled with doubt. Being filled with doubt should make us look at our time with Him. I don’t know about you but, unless I spend time with Him, I can start to doubt His Love for me.

Is God communicating something to you that you’re doubting? Spend time with Him and become reassured of Who He is.

If we are to please God, we need to allow The Holy Spirit to set us apart. We need to pursue a sinless life. We are to seek Righteousness. How do we do it? Through prayer, study, fellowship, being willing to be corrected/accountability, discipleship, and service.  
It starts with Our Relationship with Jesus. If you don’t have a Relationship with Him or you need to rekindle that Relationship, do it now. Call out to Him and seek his Love and Forgiveness. It really is as hard or easy as you make it. We should look to Him daily to seek a relationship with Him. I want to encourage you to seek Him today, if you haven’t already.
If you need help, have questions or need direction in this regard, please, feel free to let me know. Maybe today you are struggling with something. Maybe you may have found yourself not as close to The Lord as you thought. We would like to help you in this through prayer and guidance.
