The Israelites in the wilderness did not doubt in God’s existence. They had seen His glory on Mt. Sinai. They ate manna from His hand each morning. They followed the cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. But when they got to the Promised Land, they doubted God could overcome the big challenges they saw there. Their doubt kept them receiving God’s promise.

The author of Hebrews warned his readers not to fall prey to the same kind of doubt. The persecution they were suffering tempted them to doubt that God was great enough to carry them through it. Christians today face the same temptation to doubt God. The author’s warning to the first century Jewish Christians is also his warning to us: “Let us be careful… , Do not harden your hearts… , Make every effort… , Hold firmly to the faith you profess.”

In what kind of situations are you tempted to doubt in the power and faithfulness of God to do what He’s promised?

What attributes of God do you find it hardest to depend on?
