Got Doubt? Here’s What You Need to Do.

The one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind (James 1:6, ESV). Having doubts doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. Let me be the first to clear that up. But it does have the tendency to pull people away from God. The most prominent figures in the Bible even had their fair share of doubts, from Moses and Abraham to David and John the Baptist. But guess what? God showed Himself faithful by getting them through their circumstances, just like he’s ready to do for you.

The moment you doubt is the moment you cancel out the things you’ve been believing God for. Did you know that? You may not realize this, but your doubts are an extension of your fear. So my question to you is, why are you so shook? I’m assuming you’ve asked yourself this a million times and have yet to find an answer. If I’m right, don’t feel defeated. You’ve just been searching for answers in all the wrong places. Let me break it down to you, plain and simple: God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7, NKJV).

Doubt is a feeling that’s hard to resist. I get it. In fact, anyone who denies having an ounce of doubt while living on this earth, isn’t being honest with him or herself. But it’s not something you can’t overcome. While self willpower alone won’t be able to get you through these hurdles, our Heavenly Father will provide you with all the reassurance you need until you fully realize that He’s got you.

Don’t allow negative situations you’ve gone through in the past dictate your thoughts and actions moving forward. Stop looking back—you’re not going that way! And don’t let anyone get in your ear to discourage you from following your God-given path. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5-8, NKJV).

It’s not for you to sweat any doubts you’ve had in the past. Just focus on eliminating the ones you’re dealing with today. The best way to handle this? Take it to God in daily prayer and meditation in His word. Do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you (Matthew 6:31-33, ESV).
