Just yesterday someone asked me, “How can you serve God when you don’t even believe in God?”
My answer was quick and simple, “The Lord works in mysterious ways.”
Then I went and prayed to a God who I don’t even know exists. I prayed, “Dear Heavenly Father, please remove all doubt from my mind. Why do I think this way? Why do I question if you’re real? Please Lord, show me beyond a shadow of doubt that you are real. Please forgive me of having thoughts of doubts. In the name of Jesus, Amen.”
I’ve been praying these type of prayers for years.
I stayed away from God and religion because I didn’t know if God was real. I still don’t know. But I will no longer use that as an excuse to stay away from God.
Despite my beliefs, I will continue to pray to God. I will continue to read my Bible. I will continue to live by the scriptures. And I will continue to seek guidance.
Some things are hard for me to explain. There’s so much I don’t understand. But this much I do know: My life is so much better now that I’ve committed to the Lord, and based my life upon biblical principles.
Who knows what the future holds. But today, on this set of 24 hours, I will obey the fundamental teachings of the Bible.
PRAYER REQUEST: Please ask God to erase any and all doubt.
