Don’t Miss God’s Best
So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief. — HEBREWS 3:19
Doubt and unbelief can rob you of the blessing God intended you should have. Doubt and unbelief will cause you to receive something less than God’s best. Let’s look at an example of this in the Bible.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
Now in the case of Peter, the Lord intervened by His divine sovereignty and saved him. Jesus kept Peter from sinking. But Peter still missed the best that God had for him.
Notice that Jesus rebuked Peter. He said in verse 31, “. . . O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” In other words, He was saying, “Why did you doubt?” Doubt robbed Peter of the best that God had for him. His life was saved, but Peter missed God’s best.
Confession: I don’t want to be robbed of God’s best for my life. I choose to believe and not doubt. I choose to act on God’s Word. And as a result, I experience God’s blessings in my life.
