Christians who struggle with doubt feel deep discouragement—but they should not feel alone. Elyse Fitzpatrick takes a look at famous Bible characters who doubted, offers support for our beliefs, and explores God’s promises for those of little faith. Each day’s devotional has two takeaway truths to memorize or write out, plus an invitation for personal reflection. Learn to say, “I believe; help my unbelief ” when wracked by doubt.
In the 31-Day Devotionals for Life series, biblical counselors and Bible teachers guide you through Scripture passages that speak to specific situations or struggles, helping you to apply God’s Word to your life in practical ways day after day.
