Davidisms: Doubt Is the Ants in the Pants of Faith

When dealing with questions about faith, can one ever delve deeply into matters of faith without doubt creeping in?


Probably not.


Here’s what’s true. When you doubt - and do nothing with that doubt except let it stir within - then, yes, it is indeed bad. Doubt will settle in your mind like a malignant tumor. Eventually, it will grow into unbelief.


In fact James, Jesus’s brother, tells us to not doubt. “For the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind” (James 1:6b).


But here’s what I’ve learned. Doubt can in fact be good - if it forces you to ask questions. Seek answers in your faith. Deepen your belief. And your walk with Jesus.


When that happens, your faith increases and becomes more meaningful to you.


Use doubt positively.


Let it be the ants in the pants of your faith, driving you deeper into Jesus.
