Help My Unbelief - Dealing With Doubt

Types of Doubts:

  1. Intellectual doubts.
  2. Spiritual doubts.
  3. Circumstantial doubts.

Overcoming doubt:

1. Admit our doubts and ask for help.

25 So the other disciples told him, “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.” John 20:25 (NIV)

2. Recognize that faith is a choice, not a feeling.

29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” John 20:29 (NIV)

3. Act on our Faith, Not our Doubts.

Then he said to Thomas, put your finger here see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe. John 20:26-27. (NIV)

4. The real doubt resolver is watching God at work.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26 (NIV)
