When in doubt…

We all experience doubt and fear sometimes. We are human, so that is to be expected and not a character flaw. But the question arises, what can we do to not give in to doubt and fear? After all, we have dreams and desires, too. Those should be our focus. The biggest dream killers are doubt and fear, and I would suggest to you that they come from the forces of evil, not God. God loves us completely and wants so much for us to fulfill the purpose He has for our lives. Satan wants to destroy all good in our lives, and will stop at nothing to prevent us from living our lives fully.

In Matthew 14: 22-33 it says that after feeding the 5,000, Jesus sent his disciples ahead and the disciples were attempting to cross the Sea of Galilee. In the middle of the night the boat was being tossed about by a storm and the disciples were having a difficult time. Suddenly, they saw what they thought was a ghost walking on the water toward them, and it frightened them. It was Jesus. He said, “fear not, it is I”. Peter, one of the disciples said, “if it truly is you, Lord, then let me walk to you.” Jesus said “come”. Peter stepped out of the boat and was walking on the water toward Jesus. But when Peter considered the storm, he became afraid and began to sink. Peter cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out and caught him. The point to consider is this, as long as Peter kept his eyes on Jesus he was fine. But when he took his eyes off of Jesus, Peter became fearful. Keep your eyes on Jesus. He will get you through whatever may frighten you.

When in doubt, a scripture I repeat to myself is Phillipians 4:13…”I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me”…think about it, and live life fully.
