Doubts? Take Heart

Doubts? Take Heart

John 20:27 Then Jesus said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”

Grappling with Uncertainty

After Jesus’ resurrection, Thomas couldn’t just take the disciples’ word for it. He doubted their amazing story. Thomas needed tangible proof before he would believe.

Many of us resemble Thomas. We wrestle with uncertainties, longing to process truth on deeper levels. Jesus handles Thomas’s sincere doubts gently. He welcomes our honest questions too.

Seeking Tangible Evidence

Jesus compassionately provided the evidence Thomas demanded, inviting him to touch the physical wounds. He understands our desire for signs we can experience firsthand.

We may not literally touch Jesus’ wounds, but we can encounter Him personally as we bring our struggles to Him in prayer. Ask Him for the reassurance you need.

From Doubt to Belief

Upon seeing Christ’s scars, Thomas made a dramatic shift – from skepticism to declaring, “My Lord and my God!” He allows us that same grace-filled journey from uncertainty to belief.

Don’t let doubt distance you. Bring it directly to Jesus. Watch how He moves you gently from struggle to trust, just as with Thomas.

Lord, Help My Unbelief

Lord Jesus, I identify with Thomas and his honest doubts. Thank You for not scolding him, but listening and providing what he needed. Help me move from crippling doubt to bold belief. I bring my struggles to You.
