The Dreaded Doubt

Have you ever noticed how easy it is to doubt?  When things are going crazy around you and life seems to be throwing you a lot of lemons, we tend to think things will never get any better.  We begin to think that life isn’t fair and we can never get out of these lousy circumstances.

This is something I have personally struggled with in the past.  I had found myself experiencing a very long period of not enough and life just kept spiralling downward without any reprieve in sight.  So, it became easier to think that life wasn’t going to get any better.  I started to believe I was a failure and that is when depression set in…all from the doubts that kept creeping into my mind.

During this entire time, God kept trying to get my attention. I would be channel surfing on the TV and would end up watching a sermon about faith.  Or, I would grab for a book and it would be all about His Grace and Unmerited Favor. But in my stinkin’ thinkin’…I would constantly tell myself, that is great for those giving the testimonies but God won’t do it for me.

BUT, that is where I was wrong.  God is not a respecter of persons. (Acts 10:34)  What He will do for one, He will do for all. There is absolutely nothing too big or too small for God to handle.  My problem was I kept thinking and doubting that it would happen for me.

When we doubt, we stop having faith and hope.  It stunts our growth.  We begin the downward spiral that seems to never end.  Yet, this doesn’t have to be.  Doubt should never be an option for those who believe in Him!  The more we look at our terrible circumstances, the more doubt will continue to creep into our lives and we start losing the very essence of who we are in Christ.

On the cross, Christ conquered all sickness, all poverty, all failures and gave us the greatest gift known to man…HIMSELF!  By believing that Christ is our Lord and Savior, doubt has no place in our lives.  We become more than conquerors! (Romans 8:37)  We are the head and not the tail. (Deuteronomy 28:13) We are successful and have more than enough to spare and share!

When you start believing in His promises and allowing your FAITH to grow, doubt will diminish and you will begin to see your life turnaround.  God has perfect timing and ways to make our lives better than ever before.  So, LOOK UP and trust in Him…for our lives are BIGGER, BETTER and FULL OF GOD’S AMAZING GRACE.  Nothing will defeat us because we are in HIS HANDS and HE WILL NEVER LEAVE OR FORSAKE US!
