BeliefNet: Doubting deliverance

It isn’t easy to wrestle with doubt as a Christian. We think we should have the courage of a lion and the faith of an apostle, but we are faced with circumstances in life that make us ask hard questions. Are we beyond God’s reach? Have we been forgotten by God? Does he not see what we’re going through?

Maybe you lose a contract at work. Maybe your husband calls you at lunch and tells you there’s a leak in the dining room and the floor is ruined. Maybe life is getting a little hard.

When little things go wrong, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. You may feel as if you’ve taken two steps forward, only to take three steps back, so how do we respond when things go wrong?
