Doubt is something we wrestle with often. We have doubts about all kinds of things, we doubt other people and whether they will do as they say. We say things like, “I doubt that” or “I’ll believe it when I see it” all the time. We suffer from self-doubt, second guessing everything we do, and failing to trust any future action. When circumstances and suffering come, our doubts come in greater number.
We have doubts about God’s character, but we don’t have to remain there. God desires to not only grant us His wisdom but also the faith that overcomes doubt. In James chapter 1, the apostle James wrote to the scattered Jewish Christians that they could face their trials with a tested faith in God, a faith that overcomes doubt. We can overcome doubt by this tested faith in God.
