God Can Speak to Us Even in Our Doubts

By Joel Osteen

God is with us through our times of faith and our times of doubt. You may have questions, and there may be things you don't understand that cause you to wonder where God is. But God is there. He is not a fair-weathered God; there for us when we're perfect and gone when we have questions. He is there when we don't understand, when we go through a loss. God is touched by the feelings of our infirmities. That means when you hurt, God hurts. When you're disappointed, God feels your pain. When you're discouraged, God know what it's like. In those times that we don't understand and feel alone and abandoned, God is not far away. He has a way of showing up and doing amazing things. The God we serve doesn't just show up in our times of faith, He even shows up in our times of doubt.

Wow and wonderful. Today I was inspired to write a blog post called "Why are you so fearful?" which talks about the fear the disciples felt when they were in their stormy stressful situation. Jesus asked them "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" (Mark 4:40) suggesting that if they had faith in His ability to help them in their stressful situation, they would not have feared the storm. Therefore, God does speak to us even when we are doubting and He also helps us.
