Who is.. a doubter

“Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders? You stretched out your right hand; the earth swallowed them. “You have led in your steadfast love the people whom you have redeemed; you have guided them by your strength to your holy abode.” (Exodus 15:11–13, ESV)

 

Who is like the Lord? There are none who compare to the One and Only. The God of all creation stands alone in His majestic holiness. He stands alone in His glorious deeds. There are none who share the splendor He possesses. 

 

So then, why would we doubt? Why is there a single person who doubts? The answer is simple; we doubt because of our nature. The nature of rebellion, as sons of disobedience, leads to all manner of doubt. Apart from God, mankind doubts that He even exists. The world is full of atheists, agnostics, and pagan thinkers. 

 

There are more reasons for such doubt. The fallen condition of man has no shortage of reasons to doubt. But why ask such a question? Again, the answer is simple; doubt permeates social and cultural structures effecting even those who are redeemed. This doubt can be a corrosive challenge to the heart of a believer.  

 

Another reason for asking this question is to demonstrate doubt as unreasonable. Since God stands supreme and His attributes are clearly superior, then doubt is untenable. The validity of trusting in His power and might is strengthened by rejoicing like Moses did in the passage. 

 

Who is like you O Lord? None! Therefore we trust in you alone. May this be the cry of our lips and the song of our hearts.
