Even though Satan is "the father of lies, we can't lay all of the blame for our doubts on him. We are clearly held accountable for our doubts. Zechariah was told by God's messenger, Gabriel, that Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth would finally bear a son, even though (in Zechariah's opinion), they were well past the stage in life to have children. His unbelief and doubt resulted in his being struck mute.
Questions for further thought:
1. Has your doubt resulted in consequences from God?
2. What were the consequences and how were you affected?
Challenge: Bring those doubts and fears before God and repent. God is faithful and just and will forgive you. Ask Him to strengthen you in times of doubt and fears.
