Don’t doubt the Doctor can fix it

Guest author Megan also writes about Asylum of the Daleks

Some people may plainly see the comparison between the Doctor and God and how he has come down to rescue humans, even when they don’t know who he is. He is always there, always helping. Something in this episode stood out to me that could also be a comparison between God and the Doctor. It was this: God works in mysterious ways, and has more power than we think.

During this episode it is clear that Rory and Amy have (almost) divorced, and the Doctor wants to fix it. Despite all that Amy and the Doctor have been through, and the amount of trust and belief that Amy has in the Doctor, she doesn’t believe that he can fix this: “It’s not one of those things you can fix, like you can fix your bowtie”.

Even though she doesn’t believe he can fix their relationship, the Doctor uses the problem of Amy (possibly) turning into a dalek to make Rory and Amy realise they both truly love each other – and they were both unaware of the sacrifices they have made.

Funnily enough, in church one or two weeks ago our pastor was talking about Acts 12 (and in youth we were talking about it as well). A point was made that we can believe God can do all things, that nothing is impossible for God, but still we can have a lack of faith; we can pray for things, but not really expect them to happen.

We can be just like Amy.
But God can come in and show us that he has more power than we think, he can answer our prayers and then take his awesomeness and power to a higher level.

James 1:6 says “But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt”.
In Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
So I guess the main point is, God does have all the power and authority and nothing is impossible for God. God can do wonderful, amazing things, things we can’t even dream of doing. Having a faith in God is one of the most spectacular things out there, because God is the most spectacular (and only true) God out there.

About sevennotesofgrace

The author musing here about music, grace and God goes by the name of Ros. I have a husband (married 24 yrs) and three daughters. I've been many things over the years, particularly a mother, high school teacher, church music director and women's ministry co-ordinator. Now I'm back to teaching high school English full-time. All these experiences have come to me from God's gracious hand, and each day I try to remember that! I live in a home among many gum trees in Brisbane Australia. Our extended family includes a white Maremma dog named Mia, two kittens, Simon and Catniss, and one chickens. Why “seven notes of grace”? The grace refers to God’s grace, which He offers to unworthy people like myself. We can freely receive His forgiveness and love. Music is another gracious gift to us: our ability to create, play, sing, communicate with and enjoy it. So the seven refers to the seven notes of the musical scale (yes there are seven, count them A to G) and the notes refers to writing (text and music) and musical notes. I was very relieved when this original blog title finally came to me, which encapsulates so many different aspects of who I am, a musical sinner saved by grace! http://sevennotesofgrace.com/

  1. The mystery of God is hidden in plain sight, kind of like the Doctor.
