Transform Your Doubt into Hope
Matthew 14:25-31 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
Doubt is a cash advance on disappointment; we take it out before it is time.
When we doubt, we temper our hopes, our expectations, reducing the potential of the future. Maybe this is why Jesus was so disappointed in His disciples’ doubt, because it stole from the hope that He brought into the world.
Think about something in your life that you have doubts about and see if you can, with the help of God, turn that doubt into hope.
