Luke 7:19-22 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight. Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
I think it’s easy to believe there are super Christians who never stumble in their Christian walk and then there is everybody else. The “everyone else” struggles daily to balance walking with the Lord, balancing family and work, and other things that life demands. This passage give me hope.
John the Baptist had doubts. Is Jesus who I think he is? Is this really what I should be doing?Jesus said “Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.” Here is someone being used by God but still struggled with doubts.
I love Jesus’s response. He didn’t say “yes, I’m the Christ, he should know that”, he performed miracles and told John’s messengers to tell John what they had seen. Faith was restored by seeing Gods word in action.
You may be doubting if God can help you through a situation, if your doing what God wants you to do, or a host of anything else. God doesn’t tell us to have the faith of a mountain. He tells us the faith of a mustard seed can move a mountain. Trust God today that he doesn’t lose faith in us even when we doubt.
