2015 October 21 - Morning Manna

And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her. Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear? And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee! And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.
(Genesis 17:15-19)

Today's Morsel:  Isaac Bashevis Singer, Polish American writer said, "Doubt is part of all religion."  And that is true.  We see that Abraham doubted God that he and Sarah would have a child now that they were well past age.  Thomas doubted that Jesus had risen from the grave (John 20:24-29).  The disciples doubted that God could feed the multitude with two fish and five loaves (John 6:9).  Jesus asked Peter why did he doubt when he was walking on the water because of the winds and the waves (Matthew 14:31).  And even on the Day of Pentecost, they were amazed and in doubt after they saw the out pouring of the Holy Ghost with 120 speaking in tongues in the the upper room (Acts 2:12).  Even though doubt is part of all religion, we cannot allow doubt to hinder us in believing what God says in His word.

Sing:  If you trust God and never doubt, He will surely bring you out, God promised in His word, and it will never pass away.

Thought for Today:  Don't allow doubt to hinder you from believing God's word.
