The first disciples of Jesus were nowhere close to being perfect. In fact, they may have had as many doubts about Christ as they had beliefs that He was the Christ. This is so important for us as Christians. When we read about the journey of the first disciples, we can see that they had questions, doubts and even a lack of understanding. Jesus didn't' tell them to go away and come back when you have everything in order. Jesus understood that they all were willing to believe and He took the time to help them mature in their belief. They went from calling Jesus "Rabbi" (Teacher) to calling Him "Lord" (God).
May we allow God to grow our faith. Humble ourselves before Him and have a willingness to learn. That is what the disciples did and God revealed amazing truths that only God could reveal.
In my book, "Faith of a Mustard Seed", you can read about how much of my life was controlled by fear. When exposed to a little fear, decisions can be swayed verily easily. As believers in Christ, we can put our faith in God, who overcomes our fears. He knows we will have fears and doubts within our life, that must be why He gave us so much Scripture dedicated to overcoming fear. Below are just a few verses from the Bible regarding overcoming fear, but there are many more. Keep reading God's Word. That is where Hope comes from!
