Matt 11:3 “Are you the Messiah we’ve been expecting, or should we keep looking for someone else?”
Of all people to ask this question! This was from John (the baptizer), the one who once said of Jesus, “Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29
Certainly that was a declaration of faith and belief.
Perhaps, like us, John may have had a moment of doubt.
It’s easy to have faith and believe when things are going well, like when you’re healthy, have a home, a job, and everything is running smooth.
But when it starts to unravel and fall apart, faith can waver, even if for a while.
In the case of John – he’s preaching to the crowds one day and in prison the next.
You begin to wonder if God is listening to your prayers. You wonder if He has forsaken you. You begin to think what you’ve done to deserve these problems.
God doesn’t promise an easy life but a more abundant life! His word is sure and true; to give Him all your worries because He cares for you; that He will not leave you or forsake you.
Just remember when things are at their worst – God is at His best! (Just continue to read Matthew 11 and see what Jesus was doing!)
Abba Father, I know You love and care for me. It is that thought that helps me through tough times. It is in those times I often feel Your presence the most. I bless the name of the Lord Jesus for taking care of me! YES&AMEN
