A lot of emphasis is put on our faith. How deep is your faith? No one can judge another’s faith, only God can do that. But sometimes actions reveal our faith.

What is faith? Hebrews 11:1 tells us, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things unseen.” We can’t see faith, it has no form. Bu we see the evidence of faith. We see the missionaries who risk their lives and the lives of their family to teach people in dangerous places the love of God. Most of the time they are alone in their teaching and can be put in jail or killed at any moment. That is faith to me.

In sickness, we see the faith of dying people who are still talking about God’s grace and love, even when they draw their last breath. They continue to teach their loved ones and show that they believe in God and trust his commandments.

When people are saying bad things about us and making fun of our faith, and we stand up and show our true faith, that’s faith. We humans are prone to believe what we want to believe. It’s sad, but some really bad things are said about Christians. No one is perfect.

Christians are to set the example to the world. We should be happy about ourselves, our religion and the world about us. It’s hard when so many people don’t believe in the true God. God is a God of peace, not conflict. God is a God of love, not hate. God wants everyone in the world to believe his Word. After all, Christ died on the cross for all of us, not just a few.

Do your show you’re faith in God daily by not gossiping, showing God’s love, helping others and being happy? Happiness can be gained by studying the Word and meditating on it day and night.

    When Jesus came down from the mountain where He was transfigured, there was a daddy there who had a son possessed and tormented by a demon. The disciples could not cast out the demon. Jesus commented to the dad: “All things are possible to him who believes.” The heart-broken daddy cried, “I do believe; help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24).

    That boy’s dad expresses the doubt in our hearts, sometimes. “Lord, I believe, as far as I can go. But doubt is clouding the path.”

    You and I are not God. It sounds pointless to say that and yet, we doubt because we are not all-powerful and all-knowing. Doubt is not skepticism in the sense that we do not want to believe. Nor is it unbelief in that we choosenot to believe. Doubt, to quote the medieval philosopher Anselm of Canterbury, is “faith seeking understanding.”

     Doubt means that we have a pain in our heart that is drawing our attention. It might be pain relative to our own weaknesses or sin or inconsistencies. It might be pain relative to our trust in Jesus to resolve some problem we are having. It might be pain relative to our faith in God that He will, in fact, walk us through the valley of the shadow of death.

    But, as pain can send us to the doctor, so doubt should send us to the Great Physician. Think about the patriarch Job, what he experienced, and how he came through it with a strong conviction in the God of heaven. You and I, too, have to make the decision to put our trust in God, regardless of the weaknesses in our heart: fear, anxiety, confusion.

     Because we are not all-knowing and all-powerful, we have to trust the One who is.

     When you look out at the sky in the mid-day, you do not see stars. Yet, you believe the sky is still full of them. Why? You can’t see them. But you trust, based on what you know, that they are there.

     When we doubt, we feel a sense of discomfort in our heart. This discomfort is not in sync with our knowledge, our reason, or our faith. So, to which do we succumb? Our knowledge? Or our doubt?

     Doubt is a indication that we need to go back to God and His word and strengthen what might be weakened by the onslaughts of the Devil.
