Worship and Doubt

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted.

Matthew 28:16-17

From this morning’s Lectio 365 devotional:

“I spent many of my early years of faith seeking to be strong, to carry the load, to walk in honour. I experienced many griefs: unanswered prayers, tragic death, moral failures. One day, I had a simple realisation: I did not need to be strong enough to carry every pain and answer every question. This is what Jesus has done for me. I find deep comfort in reading the story of these eleven disciples, who walked in obedience to the mountain where Jesus had directed them, but sat in His presence in a mix of worship and doubt. When I imagine this scene, I sense the tenderness of Christ towards His followers.”

Father, I bring my whole self to You today. I make myself fully present to You, honest in my struggles and questions. I pray that You would show me how to turn my heart to worship, and to recognise that You are with me. Amen.”
