HERE'S HOW TO DEAL WITH DOUBT IN A HEALTHY WAY THAT DRAWS US BACK TO FAITH:

 

D - Dare to DOUBT

 

John 20:25 (NIV) So the other disciples told him(Thomas), We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe it."

 Hebrews 6:1, 3 (Message) So come on, let's leave the preschool fingerpainting exercises on Christ and get on with the grand work of art. Grow up in Christ. ...There's so much more. Let's get on with it!

Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT) Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.

His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Jesus Christ.

 

 B - Battle it out with God

 

Psalm 88:3-18 (NIV) For my soul is full of trouble and my life draws near the grave. ... You haveput me in the lowest pit, ... I call to you, O LORD, everydday; ... Do you show your wondres to the dead? ... Why, O LORD, do you reject me ... darkness is my closest friend.

 

T - Trust

  

  

Psalm 23:4 (NIV) Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
