“Why Do You Doubt?” (Psalm 40: 8, ESV) by Carley Evansa

David sings, “I delight to do Your will, O my God, Your law is within my heart.”

God promises, “I will remove the heart of stone from [your] flesh and give [you] a heart of flesh, that [you] may walk in My statutes and keep My rules and obey them. And [you] will be My people, and I will be [your] God.” (Ezekiel 11: 19 – 20)

Jesus promises, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My Name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” (John 14: 26)

Jesus tells us, “It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person… What comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person.” (Matthew 15: 10, 18)

God’s solution is to change your heart. How do you accomplish this change of heart? You can’t. God changes your heart. He takes your dead heart of stone from you, and replaces it with His own heart. He renews your mind through His Word through the power of His Holy Spirit who teaches you “all things.”

Jesus speaks to His disciples, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”

Peter answers Him, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.”

Jesus responds, “Come.”

Peter gets out of the boat to walk on the water. He’s doing fine until he sees the wind. He fears, and sinks. He cries, “Lord, save me.”

Jesus immediately reaches out to take hold of Peter, saving him. “O you of little faith, why do you doubt?” (Matthew 27 – 31)
