Doubt and Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Not long ago I read a story in the book Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever.

The Wimpy Kid explains that he had to do sit-ups in PE. But because he got cramps, he asked the gym teacher if he could finish his sit-ups as homework.

In order to convince the gym teacher that he did his homework, the Wimpy Kid took his mother’s mascara, and drew a six-pack on his abs the next morning. He wanted his gym teacher to think that it was one thing, when it was really another thing.

Likewise, doubt wants you to think that it’s one thing, when it’s really another thing. Doubt wants you to think that you’re not good enough, when in fact, you are the handiwork of God. Doubt wants you to think that you don’t have enough, when in fact, God has given you everything you need. Doubt wants you to think that you’re by yourself, when in fact, God will never leave you nor forsake you.

Doubt is an illusion, an imaginary line drawn between where you and where God wants you to be. If you just step across that line, you’ll see that doubt isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Your doubts may be big, but your God is bigger.
