Doubt - Matthew 14 - [REAL] - Brent Phillips - Encounter Houston
In this series of REAL we are going to cover real issues that real people have that need a real God to come in and help them with their problems. People that are saying you know this is who I may be now but this isn’t who I want to be a year from now.
Doubt is all something that we have struggled with somewhere in our walk as a Christian.
As a believer we have hope because the grave is empty. Nothing could keep Jesus down and He conquered death. No matter what we are facing He is always the answer.
Doubt is a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction.
Matthew 14:22-23 "Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone."
Dale Carnegie says: “Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.”
When you are fatigued or tired you do crazy things that we wouldn’t normally do. Fatigue and doubt go hand in hand. It is when we are fatigued we begin to question our circumstances and have doubt in the things that we know we heard God say.
Your soul needs to be replenished regularly by having a drink from God. Don’t make yourself so busy that you aren’t taking the time to allow yourself to be refreshed.
Matthew 14:24-27 "But the boat by this time was a long way from the land, beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them. And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. But when the disciples saw him walking in the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid."
No matter what it is that you may be facing right now, God is speaking a word to you that can squash any doubt that you may have about your circumstance He wants to give you joy, peace, and He wants to bring you back to life. He wants you to trade your fake smile for the real smile.
