Salvation is a concrete thing. But once it’s done so begins the war for your affection and worship; the scurrying of an enemy who is enraged at another soul secure in Heavenly eternity. Some days [or seasons] this can leave us with the feeling that the enemy is winning… that maybe the Savior doesn’t hear us… that maybe He has pulled back. It’s quite possible that one of the most worn and ragged arrows of the enemy bears the name “doubt” on the side. In his hands, doubt is incredibly powerful and used often against his enemy—us. When Jesus appeared before His disciples, Matthew 28:17 in the NIV tells us,
“When they saw Him, they worshiped Him, but some doubted.”
That arrow of doubt can get us to desert the One we know is faithful. It can get us to separate ourselves from Him and others in a hostile spirit. Under its influence we can find ourselves opposing His promises and striving in dispute of His goodness. It can, by definition, cause us to be at war with ourselves and to hesitate in our faith. This measly worn arrow of doubt can bring us to such a place that we are at war with our original design—our son-ship in Christ that says, “we belong to the One True King!”
Do you want to know the breath-relieving, soul-reviving, mountain top-shouting good news? Doubt doesn’t disqualify the Chosen.
Do you believe that today? Has the arrow of doubt penetrated deep in this season of life? Do you believe that Jesus loves you just as he loved his disciples who struggled with doubt too?
