Devotional: Eyes of Faith

One of the most profound themes in the Bible is that God loves when we are faithful. All throughout the gospels, we read that Jesus is looking for those with faith. He’s amazed by our faith (Matthew 8:10). He honors and rewards our faith. Examples of individuals that came to Jesus with great faith include the man with leprosy, the Roman soldier, the paralyzed man, the bleeding woman, etc. These people were desperate for healing, yet confident that they had finally found the one that could do the healing.

Throughout my own life, I’ve struggled with having a rock solid faith. From a young age, I’ve known the Lord and believed without a shadow of a doubt that He is the creator of the universe. But, I always had this feeling of uneasiness in the back of my mind with thoughts that went like this:

Does God really care about me and my life?
God is good, but does He really have good plans for me?
Does He really know me and love me?
Surely something bad is going to happen.
Can He really protect me and the people I love?

I’ve wrestled with these seeds of doubt most of my life, without even fully realizing their impact on me. But over this last year, which was the hardest yet most transformative year of my life, I’ve had to come face to face with these doubts. I’ve had to pour them out to the Lord, in all their ugliness, and let Him begin to transform my heart and mind. I had to let Him uproot the weeds planted by the enemy and replace them with new seeds of hope, truth, and assurance. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been a daily process. But little by little, I feel those doubts lessoning. And I feel a new level of trust growing in my heart.

In this life, we have two choices–we can either have eyes of faith or eyes of fear. In Matthew it says that Jesus visited his hometown of Nazareth, but the people there refused to believe in Him. Instead they questioned Him and doubted that He was really the Messiah. “And so He did only a few miracles there because of their unbelief.” Matthew 13:58

Unbelief blinds us to the truth and robs us of hope. Unbelief keeps us from truly seeing His work in our individual lives, which is exactly what the enemy wants. But we can ask the Lord to give us eyes of faith. With a humble heart, we can ask Him to break down the walls of our unbelief and replace them with a confident assurance that He is in fact walking with us day by day. And He will give us the strength to get through whatever life brings our way.

    So good!! Satan can’t take away our salvation, once we are a child of God we are forever in His family, but Satan can cause us to doubt and question sometimes to a point of disabling us, where we are no longer a light shining but just a dull flicker. I’m so glad to hear you are finding your true hope and joy in the Lord and pray that our doubts keep washing away!! Blessings❤️

    Such a good reminder. God is there even when we have questions and undoubtedly, it’s He who can help us with our struggle to walk in faith. We can take Him at his word. We can cast all our cares and worries on Him because he cares for us.

    Thank you so much for this! Walking through my own season of change.

    Trying to have unwavering faith, praying Good will help me when doubts creep in! This year has also been the hardest of my life, and living out “consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials” can be exhausting. But I’ve learned that Jesus is all I need for every moment of my life. And I don’t say that lightly, because I want to say, “except for Allie” (or any of my other loved ones). But if I say Jesus is ALL I need, then I must live that out. Thank you for this reminder, Sarah. Things have been hard here and I need to keep my focus on Christ and not my storm! ♥️
