Doubt doesn’t write you out or write you off. John the Baptist was in prison awaiting his own execution. He was in great turmoil and doubts filled his mind as he saw the imminent end of his brief life. So much so, he sent his disciples to ask Jesus if He really was the One, The Messiah, or “should he expect another.”

Immediately after Jesus answered John’s disciples question and they left the scene, Jesus begins to declare how great a man of God John truly was, “Then what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. This is the one about whom it is written:  ‘I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.’ ” (Matthew 11:9–10, NIV84)

From Christ’s perspective, John’s doubts did not disqualify him. In your moments of great doubt, Jesus understands.
From Christ’s perspective, John’s doubts did not disqualify him. In your moments of great doubt, Jesus understands. There are simply things you are NOT going to understand this side of eternity. Take courage, Jesus really is the One, He really did come, and if you’ve invited Him in, He lives inside of you. Don’t doubt in the darkness what God has shown you in the light.

Hallelujah!
