NIV Devotions for Women - Week of January 18

At Issue - Doubting God

Verse: Exodus 5:22-23

Shouldn’t a goal or ministry, if it’s truly from God, be achieved without problems or setbacks? We’ve done exactly what’s expected of us—why are things still going wrong? It’s normal to feel frustrated and confused in moments like these. Moses did. He wasn’t afraid to share his true feelings with God. Our doubts do not anger God. In fact, God uses roadblocks in our lives to make us doubt our own plans and rely on him. You may have the perfect skills for the job, but your true strength will always come when you’re resting in God’s arms.
