“For all Your goodness I will keep on singing Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find…” Matt Redman. These posts are my simple way to cultivate a heart of love and praise. The goal: to list 10,000 of the reasons in my life. Join me if you want.
#25 He reveals himself when I doubt. I am to be blamed when I doubt. The shallow concerns of my life can easily overtake my emotions and thoughts. There are times when I am not quick to remember God’s character or Word.
So when I am pleading the shallow prayers for comfort and pause to “sense His Spirit” the gut check thought comes “Have I opened His Word?” zinger! That didn’t come from me! I’ve been too busy trying to comfort my thoughts in my own way.
So I open His Word and He reveals himself when I doubt. He reveals, his intimate concern, His infallible love, his powerful grace and His controlling sovereignty. “Wow!” I think. “ Those are all comforting thoughts and promises! Why do I doubt?” I realize it is because there are seasons in my life, when I don’t open the Word- therefore not feeding my mind and heart of these truths. Yeah- sure I listen to sermons and read Christian authors and theologians. But nothing replaces the Bible- the Voice of God! He reveals himself to me when I doubt! And I bless the lord for that.
