Doubts

Have you ever had an idea bubble up in your soul, thrilling your spirit only to be flanked by a whisper of doubt? I have. I think all of us have. Even those individuals who don’t appear to have a shred of insecurity have doubts. If you peeled back their self-assured smile, dug deep, and uncovered their heart you’d find uncertainty hidden within–it’s all apart of being human.

Doubt is a weapon the evil one wields like a sword–cutting us off before we even get started. We dream of mentoring teens, hosting a Bible study for young adults, or writing a children’s book; but even before we start to put our plans into action we begin to second guess ourselves and quickly talk ourselves out of following through. “What do you know about mentoring teens, your own teen years were a train wreck? They will probably know the Bible better than you. What do you know about writing books for children, you don’t even have kids.” Word’s whispered quiet but damaging just the same.

If  we become paralyzed by doubt we won’t be able to reach our full potential or fulfill God’s purposes for our lives.

We can trace the origins of doubt all the way back to the garden–paradise. A garden of splendor blooming with lush vegetation, the fragrance of flora all about, the home of the first man and woman. Adam and Eve walked and talked with God in paradise–no separation, no sin…only perfect communion with our Lord. Their ever need was met.

It wasn’t long before the evil one made an appearance and toppled it all… If you would like to read the rest of this post, I would love for you to pop over to Essential Thing Devotions where I will be guest posting.

Blessings, Kasey

  1. Let me encourage you. We all have doubts, God knows it and accepts us just the way we are. Look at Matthew 28. He gave the great commission to some doubters: When they saw Him, they worshiped Him: but some doubted. How powerful is that. We may doubt ourselves, but He never doubts in us.

  2. I think it’s so true…..everyone experiences those doubts. It can become quite a bondage. Walking in the freedom and joy of the Lord is so amazing though as I continue to try to release those doubts to Him and just pursue what He is calling me to! Thank you for sharing.

    • Bonnie, I’m so glad you stopped by and shared an encouragement. Doubts have a way of bogging us down; we just have to trust if God is calling us to it His will, will prevail. Blessings, Kasey
