Matthew 11:2-6, Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, 3 And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? 4 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: 5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
Have you ever questioned God? Have you ever doubted Jesus? Have you ever wanted to just throw in the towel, and not simply call it a day, but call it quits? If so, you are in great company there have been many others before you. The Bible is filled with men and women who questioned God. The Bible is filled with men and women who doubted Jesus. So is church history!
Like John the Baptist–while he was sitting in a dark and dingy prison cell, and in a moment of discouragement and despair–many have questioned God, and have doubted Jesus. When Jesus was asked by John’s disciples, for John, if he was the Messiah, Jesus reply was simple. Look at what I have done in the past. Look at the mighty works I have accomplished in the lives of many!
When doubts, discouragement, and even distress come your way, just take a few moments and think about how good Jesus has been to you in the past. Think about all of his mighty works over the years in your life and in the lives of others. If you do, it’ll lighten your load, bless your soul, and rejoice your heart–even in the midst of a dark and dingy prison cell!
Just taking a moment to reflect!!!
