We Should Doubt Wrong Teaching
Perhaps we are doubting because what we have been taught is wrong — like the pervasive teaching that all we have to do is pray God’s verses over someone, and they’ll be healed (and they’re not, say) or when we ask for anything in His name we’ll get it, because He says so (John 14: 14), and the money doesn’t come.
So we reasonably, and sensibly, ask, “Why? Is it you, God, or is it something about the way I’m understanding things?”
I know it doesn’t seem fair, but 100 percent of the time the answer appears to be the latter. And the only Person who can enable us to understand things better is God Himself, so no matter how hard we try, we can’t run away from Him.
There are two major things we humans consistently doubt about God: 1) His ability and 2) His goodness. One of the best Bible accounts illustrating both of these is the story of Jesus falling asleep in the boat with His disciples when a storm comes up (Luke 8: 22-25; Matthew 8: 23-27; and Mark 4: 36-40).
