God's Words of Comfort

 

A Portion of God's Holy Word Regarding:


Doubt – Skepticism – Unbelief


Moses answered, "But suppose they do not believe me or listen to me, but say, 'The Lord did not appear to you.'"
     The Lord said to him, "What is that in your hand?"
     He said, "A staff."
     And He said, "Throw it on the ground." So he threw the staff on the ground, and it became a snake; and Moses drew back from it.
     Then the Lord said to Moses, "Reach out your hand, and seize it by the tail"—so he reached out his hand and grasped it, and it became a staff in his hand—"so that they may believe that the Lord, the God of their ancestors, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you."
     Again, the Lord said to him, "Put your hand inside your cloak." He put his hand into his cloak; and when he took it out, his hand was leprous, as white as snow. Then God said, "Put your hand back into your cloak"—so he put his hand back into his cloak, and when he took it out, it was restored like the rest of his body—"If they will not believe you or heed the first sign, they may believe the second sign." Exodus 4:1-8 (NRSV)

 
"Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth." Psalms 46:10 (NRSV)


Staned Glass Parable of the SowerYou guide me with Your counsel, and afterward You will receive me to glory. Whom have I in Heaven but You? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalms 73:24-26 (ESV)
 
He split rocks in the wilderness and gave them drink as abundant as the depths. He brought streams out of the stone and made water flow down like rivers. But they continued to sin against Him, rebelling in the desert against the Most High. They deliberately tested God, demanding the food they craved. They spoke against God, saying, "Is God able to provide food in the wilderness? Look! He struck the rock and water gushed out; torrents overflowed. But can He also provide bread or furnish meat for His people?" Therefore, the Lord heard and became furious; then fire broke out against Jacob, and anger flared up against Israel because they did not believe God or rely on His salvation. Psalms 78:15-22 (HCSB)
 
Every Word of God is flawless. He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Proverbs 30:5 (WEB)
 
The Lord will be your guide at all times; in dry places He will give you water in full measure, and will make strong your bones; and you will be like a watered garden, and like an ever-flowing spring. Isaiah 58:11 (BBE)
 
Then certain of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, "Teacher, we want to see a sign from You."
     But He answered them,
"An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and there will no sign be given it but the sign of Jonah, the prophet. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Matthew 12:38-40 (WEB)
 
[The following explanatory verses are in regards to the Parable of the Sower, found in Matthew 13:1-17 and Mark 4:3-9. Here the sower, or farmer, is anyone who brings God’s Message to others, trying to plant good “seed” within their lives. The seed refers to God’s Word, the farmer’s field represents the world, the various types of soil in the parable represents the different ways mankind responds to the Gospel, and the birds who devour the seeds represents Satan. Some ignore the Word, others are enthused but soon fade away for the cares of the world and other reasons, but some take it to heart and enthusiastically spread it to others.]
"Now here is the explanation of the story I told about the farmer planting grain: The hard path where some of the seeds fell represents the heart of a person who hears the Good News about the Kingdom and doesn't understand it; then Satan comes and snatches away the seeds from his heart. The shallow, rocky soil represents the heart of a man who hears the Message and receives it with real joy, but he doesn't have much depth in his life, and the seeds don't root very deeply, and after a while when trouble comes, or persecution begins because of his beliefs, his enthusiasm fades, and he drops out. The ground covered with thistles represents a man who hears the Message, but the cares of this life and longing for money choke out God's Word, and he does less and less for God. The good ground represents the heart of a man who listens to the Message and understands it and goes out and brings thirty, sixty, or even a hundred others into the Kingdom." Matthew 13:18-23 (TLB)
 
Having come to His hometown, He began to teach them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, "How did this wisdom and these miracles come to Him? Isn't this the carpenter's son? Isn't His mother called Mary, and His brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, aren't they all with us? So where does He get all these things?" And they were offended by Him.
     But Jesus said to them,
"A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his household." And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief. Matthew 13:54-58 (HCSB)
 
And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. But when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, "It is a ghost!" and they cried out in fear.
     But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, "Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid."
     And Peter answered Him, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."
     He said, "Come."
     So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, "Lord, save me."
     Jesus immediately reached out His hand and took hold of him, saying to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
     And those in the boat worshiped Him, saying, "Truly You are the Son of God." Matthew 14:25-33 (ESV)
 
"You have so little faith!" Matthew 16:8 (GOD’S WORD®)
 
When they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him."
     Then Jesus answered and said, "O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me." And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.
     Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast it out?"
     So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:14-19 (NKJV)
 
Jesus answered and said unto them, "Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, 'Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea;' it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." Matthew 21:21-22 (KJV)
 
Winter SunsetThen one of the crowd answered and said, "Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit. And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not."
     He answered him and said, "O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to Me."
     Then they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell on the ground and wallowed, foaming at the mouth. So He asked his father, "How long has this been happening to him?"
     And he said, "From childhood. And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us."
     Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."
     Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!"     
     When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!" Mark 9:17-25 (NKJV)
 
Jesus said to them, "Have faith in God. In solemn truth I tell you that if any one shall say to this mountain, 'Remove, and hurl thyself into the sea,' and has no doubt about it in his heart, but steadfastly believes that what he says will happen, it shall be granted him. That is why I tell you, as to whatever you pray and make request for, if you believe that you have received it, it shall be yours." Mark 11:22-24 (WNT)
 
Answering them He said, "Go back and give news to John [the Baptist] of what you have seen, and the things which have come to your ears; the blind now see, those who had no power in their legs are walking, lepers are made clean, those who had no hearing now have their ears open, dead men come to life again, and the poor have the Good News given to them. And a blessing will be on him who has no doubts about Me." Luke 7:22-23 (BBE)
 
Yosemite Lake"This story is about some of those people. The seed is the Word of God. The seeds on the road are those who hear the Word, but no sooner do they hear it than the Devil snatches it from them so they won't believe and be saved." Luke 8:11-12 (The Message)
 
"The stony ground represents those who enjoy listening to sermons, but somehow the Message never really gets through to them and doesn't take root and grow. They know the Message is true, and sort of believe for awhile; but when the hot winds of persecution blow, they lose interest. The seed among the thorns represents those who listen and believe God's Words but whose faith afterwards is choked out by worry and riches and the responsibilities and pleasures of life. And so they are never able to help anyone else to believe the Good News.
     But the good soil represents honest, good-hearted people. They listen to God's Words and cling to them and steadily spread them to others who also soon believe."
Luke 8:13-15 (TLB)
 
[The following is the story of Lazarus and the Rich Man, offering us a very clear picture of the afterlife. Jesus told this to the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, and in this instance, they represented the Rich Man. Lazarus represented the poor people that the Pharisees despised, and Abraham represented the afterlife. Jesus was telling the Pharisees that He was sent to save sinners, rich and poor alike, and warned them that they should repent and humble themselves in order to find true riches. If you don’t repent, you’ll wind up eternally condemned. Since the rich man wanted to warn his five brothers back on earth, we see  that we determine our eternal destiny while we’re here on earth, in that, we can either accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, or not. All those in Christ, when they die, go straight to Heaven to be in the Lord’s presence. We who accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, have been given a full pardon, when we ask forgiveness for our sins, past, present and future. As it states in Matthew 7:13-14, ‘For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter in by it. How narrow is the gate and restricted is the way that leads to life! Few are those who find it.’]
"There was once a rich man who habitually arrayed himself in purple and fine linen, and enjoyed a splendid banquet every day, while at his outer door there lay a beggar, Lazarus by name, covered with sores and longing to make a full meal off the scraps flung on the floor from the rich man's table. Nay, the dogs, too, used to come and lick his sores.
     "But in course of time the beggar died; and he was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died, and had a funeral. And in Hades, being in torment, he looked and saw Abraham in the far distance, and Lazarus resting in his arms.
     "So he cried aloud, and said, 'Father Abraham, take pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.'
 Grand Canyon Colorado river    "'Remember, my child,' said Abraham, 'that you had all your good things during your lifetime, and that Lazarus in like manner had his bad things. But, now and here, he is receiving consolation and you are in agony. And, besides all this, a vast chasm is immovably fixed between us and you, put there in order that those who desire to cross from this side to you may not be able, nor any be able to cross over from your side to us.'
     "'I entreat you then, father,' said he, 'to send him to my father's house. For I have five brothers. Let him earnestly warn them, lest they also come to this place of torment.'
     "'They have Moses and the Prophets,' replied Abraham; 'let them hear them.'
     "'No, father Abraham,' he pleaded; 'but if some one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.'
     "'If they are deaf to Moses and the Prophets,' replied Abraham, 'they would not be led to believe even if some one should rise from the dead.'"
Luke 16:19-31 (WNT)
 
He said, "O foolish men! how slow you are to give belief to what the prophets have said." Luke 24:25 (BBE)
 
But all who have received Him, to them--that is, to those who trust in His name--He has given the privilege of becoming children of God. John 1:12 (WNT)
 
Jesus answered [Nicodemus] and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? No one has ascended to Heaven but He who came down from Heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in Heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
     "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
John 3:10-18 (NKJV)
 
"Unless you and others see miracles and marvels," said Jesus, "nothing will induce you to believe." John 4:48 (WNT)
 
"If you believe Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you disbelieve his writings, how are you to believe My words?" John 5:46-47 (WNT)


Rainbow over Grand Canyon"What are we to do," they asked, "in order to carry out the things that God requires?"
     "This," replied Jesus, "is above all the thing that God requires--that you should be believers in Him whom He has sent." John 6:28-29 (WNT)
 
"Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life." John 6:47 (NRSV)
 
"Because I say what is true, you have no belief in Me. Which of you is able truly to say that I am a sinner? If I say what is true, why have you no belief in Me? He who is a child of God gives ear to the words of God: your ears are not open to them because you are not from God." John 8:45-47 (BBE)
 
"If I am not doing the works of My Father, then do not believe Me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me and I am in the Father." John 10:37-38 (ESV)
 
Even though He had performed all these miracles in their presence, they did not believe in Him, so that what the prophet Isaiah had said might come true:
     "Lord, who believed the message we told? To whom did the Lord reveal His power?" And so they were not able to believe, because Isaiah also said, "God has blinded their eyes and closed their minds, so that their eyes would not see, and their minds would not understand, and they would not turn to Me, says God, for Me to heal them." Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus' glory [in a vision] and spoke about Him. Even then, many Jewish authorities believed in Jesus; but because of the Pharisees they did not talk about it openly, so as not to be expelled from the synagogue. They loved human approval rather than the approval of God.

     Jesus said in a loud voice, "Whoever believes in Me believes not only in Me but also in Him who sent Me. Whoever sees Me sees also Him who sent Me. I have come into the world as light, so that everyone who believes in Me should not remain in the darkness. If people hear My Message and do not obey it, I will not judge them. I came, not to judge the world, but to save it. Those who reject Me and do not accept My Message have One who will judge them. The words I have spoken will be their judge on the last day! This is true, because I have not spoken on My own authority, but the Father who sent Me has commanded Me what I must say and speak. And I know that His command brings eternal life. What I say, then, is what the Father has told Me to say." John 12:37-50 (GNT)
 
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." John 14:1-3 (KJV)
 
[After the Resurrection, Jesus appeared before the disciples in the Upper Room. Thomas, one of the disciples, was not present, and upon hearing the Good News had great difficulty believing that Jesus had indeed risen from the dead. Thomas was given the nickname “doubting Thomas” because of his negative outlook, he looked at many of life’s situations with pessimism.]
Thomas, one of the twelve—surnamed 'the Twin'—was not among them when Jesus came. So the rest of the disciples told him, "We have seen the Master!" His reply was, "Unless I see in His hands the wound made by the nails and put my finger into the wound, and put my hand into His side, I will never believe it."
     A week later the disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them, when Jesus came--though the doors were locked--and stood in their midst, and said,
"Peace be to you." Then He said to Thomas, "Bring your finger here and feel My hands; bring your hand and put it into My side; and do not be ready to disbelieve but to believe."
     "My Lord and my God!" replied Thomas.
     "Because you have seen Me," replied Jesus, "you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." John 20:24-29 (WNT)
 
"All the people of Israel should know beyond a doubt that God made Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ."
     When the people heard this, they were deeply upset. They asked Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers, what should we do?"
     Peter answered them, "All of you must turn to God and change the way you think and act, and each of you must be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins will be forgiven. Then you will receive the Holy Spirit as a gift." Acts 2:36-38 (GOD’S WORD®)
 
I am proud of the Good News, because it is the power God uses to save everyone who believes -- to save the Jews first, and also to save those who are not Jews. The Good News shows how God makes people right with Himself -- that it begins and ends with faith. As the Scripture says, "But those who are right with God will live by trusting in Him." Romans 1:16-17 (NCV™)
 
If God is for us, who can be against us? He who didn't spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how would He not also with Him freely give us all things? Romans 8:31-32 (WEB)
 
This is what the Scripture says: "The Word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart." That is the teaching of faith that we are telling. If you use your mouth to say, "Jesus is Lord," and if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved. We believe with our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we use our mouths to say that we believe, and so we are saved. As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in Him will never be disappointed." Romans 10:8-11 (NCV™)
 
As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. Romans 14:1 (ESV)
 
For God in His wisdom saw to it that the world would never find God through human brilliance, and then He stepped in and saved all those who believed His Message, which the world calls foolish and silly. It seems foolish to the Jews because they want a sign from Heaven as proof that what is preached is true; and it is foolish to the Gentiles because they believe only what agrees with their philosophy and seems wise to them. So when we preach about Christ dying to save them, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it's all nonsense. But God has opened the eyes of those called to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, to see that Christ is the mighty power of God to save them; Christ Himself is the center of God's wise plan for their salvation. This so-called "foolish" plan of God is far wiser than the wisest plan of the wisest man, and God in His weakness—Christ dying on the cross—is far stronger than any man. 1 Corinthians 1:21-25 (TLB)
 
Yosemite Bridalveil FallsSatan, the god of this evil world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe, so they are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News that is shining upon them. They don't understand the Message we preach about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God… For God, who said, "Let there be light in the darkness," has made us understand that this light is the brightness of the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:4, 6 (NLT)
 
I have been put to death on the cross with Christ; still I am living; no longer I, but Christ is living in me; and that life which I now am living in the flesh I am living by faith, the faith of the Son of God, who in love for me, gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20 (BBE)
 
I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 (WEB)
 
My God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 (WEB)
 
For the Lord Himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel's call and with the sound of God's trumpet, will descend from Heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (NRSV)
 
So then, brethren, stand your ground, and hold fast to the teachings which you have received. 2 Thessalonians 2:15 (WNT)
 
Be careful, brothers and sisters, that none of you ever develop a wicked, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. Encourage each other every day while you have the opportunity. If you do this, none of you will be deceived by sin and become stubborn. Hebrews 3:12-13 (GOD’S WORD®)
 
Indeed, the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (NRSV)
 
Let us think about each other and help each other to show love and do good deeds. You should not stay away from the church meetings, as some are doing, but you should meet together and encourage each other. Do this even more as you see the day coming. Hebrews 10:24-25 (NCV™)
 
What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead… By faith—by believing in God—we know that the world and the stars—in fact, all things—were made at God's command; and that they were all made from things that can't be seen… You can never please God without faith, without depending on Him. Anyone who wants to come to God must believe that there is a God and that He rewards those who seek after Him. Hebrews 11:1, 3, 6 (TLB)
 
Your lives should be untainted by love for money. Be content with what you have; for God Himself has said, "I will never, never let go your hand: I will never, never forsake you." So that we fearlessly say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid: what can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6 (WNT)
 
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8 (WEB)
 
If any of you needs wisdom to know what you should do, you should ask God, and He will give it to you. God is generous to everyone and doesn't find fault with them. When you ask for something, don't have any doubts. A person who has doubts is like a wave that is blown by the wind and tossed by the sea. A person who has doubts shouldn't expect to receive anything from the Lord. A person who has doubts is thinking about two different things at the same time and can't make up his mind about anything. James 1:5-8 (GOD’S WORD®)
 
My dear friends, if you know people who have wandered off from God's truth, don't write them off. Go after them. Get them back. James 5:19 (The Message)
 
Be humble under God's powerful hand so He will lift you up when the right time comes. Give all your worries to Him, because He cares about you. 1 Peter 5:6-7 (NCV™)


Canadian Rockies Glacial LakeIf we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:8-9 (NRSV)
 
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but put the spirits to the test to see whether they are from God; for many false teachers have gone out into the world. The test by which you may recognize the Spirit of God is that every spirit which acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come as man is from God. 1 John 4:1-2 (WNT)
 
I write all this to you in order that you who believe in the Son of God may know for certain that you already have the Life of the Ages. 1 John 5:13 (WNT)
 
Try to help those who argue against you. Be merciful to those who doubt. Jude 22 (TLB)
 
"Cowards, those who refuse to believe, who do evil things, who kill, who sin sexually, who do evil magic, who worship idols, and who tell lies -- all these will have a place in the lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death." Revelation 21:8 (NCV™)
