Bridge for Faith

The Powerful Lion

Isn’t Spurgeon’s quote great? When a fiery dart of doubt strikes, I turn to the Bible so God Himself can remove it. It’s the Holy Spirit’s instrument of choice. Think of how even Jesus used the Scriptures to strengthen John the Baptist’s faith. John, no wimp of a Believer but stuck in prison, entertained a doubt whether Jesus was really the Messiah. Jesus responded by reminding John that He was fulfilling the Old Testament prophecy by publicly healing the blind, deaf, and lame. (Luke 7:18-23 and Isaiah 35:4-8)

I’m so thankful God is real. When our faith is weak, we need to let the powerful Word of God loose in our lives.

I’m sure every Christian reading this can remember many times that God has provided just the right Scripture to answer a question or doubt. I’d love to hear about it.

      It seems like God loves to demonstrate the impossible. May He display His power!

    Thank you for this reminder to find refuge and comfort in Scripture, instead of missing the comforts of my life in the U.S. I also appreciate the reminder that we aren’t able to produce the spiritual fruit we want to see, but if we remain in Christ’s words and let them come through us there will be a harvest in God’s timing

      I just noticed I hadn’t replied to you. I appreciated the application you made to spiritual fruit. It’s a reminder I need all the time.

    Hi Mrs. Boyles. It’s been a while since I read your last article. Hope this finds you well.
    I agree with you that the Word of God gives an answer for our question or doubt.
    Miss you and Mr. Boyles!

      Yes, it’s been two years, and the time flew by. I’ve been working on a sequel for my story and neglected the website. I miss you too and hope all is well! I’m really glad to be in touch again!
