"Peace When You Doubt" Chris Kiger Daily we hear stories in the news about murders, wars in all parts of the world, persons being taken away in the prime of their lives due to illnesses, and cultural battles of right and wrong. We ask ourselves, “Does God even care about what’s going on? Where is He? Why doesn’t He do something about all this?” Slowly but surely our doubts cause us to lose hope. We become anxious. We become fearful. We begin to question who will help us deal with all the problems that we face. We want to know where peace and assurance come from in the midst of despair and fear. It all seems impossible that we can survive unscathed and confident in the midst of all that we’ll face in our lifetime. But God specializes in the impossible. Jesus rose from the dead on the third day. If he can do that, He can help you overcome your doubts, woes, and fears. Shadows we face in life are of the world. But there is no shadow that comes from our heavenly father. His light is constant. When we face shadows of uncertainty, we have the assurance that God is with us. He dispels darkness. He destroys fear and restores confidence. He outnumbers our enemy. But we must turn to Him with full faith and assurance that He is walking beside us and guiding us through the circumstances of our lives. We must learn to rely upon God and not on our own human understanding. Isaiah 26:3-4 says, “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the rock eternal.”
