Believing is easy when things are good.
The challenge comes as difficulties mount.
When our bank account is full, our hearts are usually filled with praise. Notice I said “usually filled.”
When we have "more month than money". . .we’ll things are a bit different . . . since we’re not seeing the blessings.
John 20:24-25 in the New King James Version says:
“Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
The 12 were not always giants of faith.
Remember they, too, were overwhelmed by doubt when Jesus was crucified and buried.
In verse 24, testifying that Jesus was alive was easy for them. They had the advantage of having seen the already resurrected Lord.
John 20:25 in the New King James Version says:
“So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
