Overcoming Doubt!

One of the questions I get ofter is how do we overcome doubt? How do we acquire childlike faith and keep it? God’s Holy Word says, “And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.” (Deuteronomy 6:5, NLT) Christ said it was the most important commandment. Mark 12: 29-30 This degree of loving God must be the first key to overcoming doubt. If we truly love God, will we doubt Him? Please teach us to love you like little children, trusting you in all things and with each moment.

Perhaps our doubt stems from our realization that God doesn’t see and do things the way we do. We can’t understand why God would allow His faithful followers to suffer torture, imprisonment and death for their belief in Him. He’s almighty God! Why doesn’t He rescue these people? Why doesn’t He show His mighty power to the oppressors and break them free? Why does He allow His children to suffer hardship? We’re children of the King! Why doesn’t He keep the bank from foreclosing on our house?

When we start asking these kinds of questions about God, we have entered the realm of human logic and reasoning – a large contributor to doubt and a constant drain on the love relationship that we’re supposed to give all our heart, soul and strength.

Isaiah 55:8 says, “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. (NLT)

We must remember that it is not this life on this earth that we live for. Our time here is brief compared to eternity. Whatever we accomplish here and whatever we suffer here, as long as we have our strong love relationship with our Lord, we will be OK. “If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it.” (Luke 17:33, NLT)

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
