We believe there is one true God.
Doubt can cripple you. When you doubt yourself you poison the plan God has for your life. I know for me I can be my own worst enemy. I can talk myself out of doing what I know I am supposed to do so easily. Here is the thing, it is okay to have doubts as long as you quickly combat those thoughts with truth. Before you let your imagination run wild on all the “what ifs” ask yourself “what is true.”
When the most famous doubter in history was unwilling to believe Jesus came back to life, Jesus showed him the truth. Jesus showed Thomas what is true and then told him to have faith. Today if you are playing scenarios in your head of what could be ask yourself what is true and take action on the truth. Doubt is inevitable. Destroy doubt with truth and action.
24 One of the twelve disciples, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), was not with the others when Jesus came. 25 They told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side.”
26 Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them. The doors were locked; but suddenly, as before, Jesus was standing among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!”
28 “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed.
29 Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” -John 20:26-28
