Faith, by its definition, requires a suspension of the requirement for logic, for a suspension of credibility based on human understanding. Faith demands risk-taking; a willingness to live in that place where there is good reason to doubt.
If a reasonable person does not have some legitimate doubts along the road to faith, one rightly wonders about the depth of his or her faith....
The question of faith is: If sometimes I have genuine doubts about God, do I stop to consider the sea of doubts I would drown in if God weren't in the picture at all. November 1;(The Daily Bible Devotional, F. La Gard Smith, 2008, Harvest House Publishers: Eugene, Oregon.)
I cannot imagine that there is a believer who has not been assailed by doubt of some kind. It appears to be a significant tool for the evil one -to whisper doubt in our ears - Can it really all be true? all this Jesus stuff?
I knew I have heard those words whispered in the middle of a trial of some sort...then I think about what faith is and the choices before me. Either choice requires faith: God is Who He says He is and will do what He has said He would through His word, or it is all a matter of chance, that creation "happened" and death ends it all. Which do I believe?
Yes, I know that there are all kinds of "proofs" for either position - but I also believe an element of faith is required for either position. After all, the only eye witness we have for any of this is God.
