Confession time...If there is one thing the enemy can use against me..it's doubt. I hate the "D" word.
Is there a word you despise? For me, doubt robs. It steals peace, it causes worry. Removes trust.
It breeds condemnation and goes against the grains of truth. I tend to swallow it whole. It breaks communication with God.
Even though it's a hard pill to swallow, I willingly gulp it down.
The Truth is though, that God doesn't condemn. He loves. It's simple really.
The world tells me ...
that I am unworthy. God shows me Psalm 139.
My sin tells me ...
that I don't deserve. God shows me the cross.
Doubt pounds down my resolve. God shows me to trust.
Don't let doubt torment your soul.
God has called us by name according Isaiah 43:1. We are his children. That's a promise I can't doubt. I don't have to just wish...or have false hope.
This is deep-down-in-my-heart-and-soul confidence.
Something that runs this deep in promise is truth that I can't doubt.
Cling to this truth...it's all we have.
What’s a doubt that consumes your heart? How have you been struggling with doubt?
