One of my favorite songs at the moment is “I Know” by Big Daddy Weave. The message is great. It talks about how even though we don’t understand everything, we know that God is good. That God is kind. That He is so much more!
I think my favorite part of the song is the opening few lines, “You don’t answer all my questions…but You hear me when I speak. You don’t keep my heart from breaking…but when it does, You weep with me.”
I posted a blog post about a day or so ago regarding my beliefs and whether or not these beliefs were truly MY beliefs or just what was taught to me growing up. You can read it here: Are My Beliefs MY Beliefs?
I realize that in this world we are going to have doubts. That’s Satan’s area of expertise…getting us to doubt what in the past we have known to be true. He plants those seeds of doubt ever so subtly. God doesn’t love you. You’re not a Christian. Look at all your sin.
But we need to fight back against Satan when he pops those ideas into our heads. In Romans 8:1-2 it says,
There is therefore now NO condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me FREE from the law of sin and death.
Romans 8:1-2 (NKJV)
In Ephesians 6:10-11 we are told to take up the armor of God.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil
As long as we live in this sin filled world, troubles are going to come. Doubts are going to rise. But if we cling to the One who created us, if we cling to His goodness, to His kindness…we will remain in Him.
