Defying Your Doubt

When in doubt, don't. -Benjamin Franklin

When Jesus asked Peter to defy the laws of gravity by walking on water (Matt. 14), one moment Peter’s faith rose confidently as He walked toward Jesus; but the next his doubt sunk him into the ocean blue and Jesus was his only rescue.  Peter’s faith probably looks as sporadic as our does at times.  In spite of Peter’s doubt, however, God still used him in a mighty way to preach to thousands on the day of Pentecost.  As we face new challenges, we can turn to God for strength to overcome our doubts.   

I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don't doubt, you can do things like this and much more… (Matthew 21: 21, ESV).
