Review:
• Doubt is a certainty everyone deals with.
• Doubt is NOT the opposite of Faith.
• You can no more have faith without doubt, than be brave without fear.
• Doubt leads us to despair or devotion. (Restlessness or Peace)

Week 3:
“The Object of Our Faith”
"I don't fit there. I may have at one point. I did grow up as a youth group kid wearing a t-shirt with a picture of Jesus on it. I did drive a car with a "Christian" bumper sticker on it. And at one point, I was sure of who God was, and how God operated. But I am not that way now. And so it is impossible to write from that old version of myself.”
–Dan Haseltine (Jars of Clay)
The storm arose even though:
• They served.
• Jesus prayed.
• They obeyed.
We can face each trial BELIEVING GOD ORDAINED IT or WONDERING WHERE HE IS WHILE IN IT.

When facing the storm remember what He has said to you and done in and through you!
Why didn't Peter ask Him to calm the storm?
Why did Peter ask Him to command him to walk on the water?

Peter knew that drawing closer to Jesus is the best thing we can do when facing the storms of life!
Peter began to sink when he looked at his circumstances instead of Christ!

Circumstance =
A condition that accompanies, determines, or modifies a fact or event.

Challenging Circumstances provide opportunities for us to:
1. Exercise our faith
2. Demonstrate our devotion

Doubt leads to idolizing our circumstances or magnifying Christ!
What storm are you facing right now?
Who are you listening to?
How should you respond?

We are not clinging to promises, we are clinging to a person!
