Doubts

“When they saw Him, they worshipped Him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.” Matthew 28:17-1817And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. (Matthew 28:17‑18)
Perhaps as we go to worship the Lord on Lord’s Day morning, we have a hard time concentrating. We begin thinking over the past week, and doubts arise in our hearts as to some things that the Lord allowed in our lives. Why did my friend say that to me? Why did the car break down again? Why did Tommy have to get sick when we finally had an invitation over to the Johnson’s?
Here the disciples were worshipping Him, and yet doubts were going through their minds. Then the Lord came and quietly assured them that all power was given to Him. He was truly in control of every detail of their lives. How good it is for us to remember this, too. If we see Him in everything, we know that not one word will be said, nor one trial come our way, unless the Lord allows it for our good. He has all power in our circumstances, so we can cast all our care on Him and free our minds to remember Him.
