No Room For Doubt
Hello Ladies, I hope you’ve had a good week thus far. Sorry it’s been a while since a new post went up, I’ve been pretty busy tackling work and home life. However, I’m back and today we are talking on the subject of doubt. Before we begin, remember to subscribe to our blog so you can get the new posts in your email, and don’t forget to share this site with others. Okay, grab your favorite drink, get comfortable, and let’s dive into today’s topic, “No Room For Doubt”.
Today I decided to discuss the subject of doubt because, well let’s be honest it’s something everyone can relate to am I right? But also it’s something I’ve been struggling with lately because of something going on with my work. See I’ve been trying to get my licensing to become a sub teacher since the beginning of the year. It seems like anytime I make head way something else comes and trips me up. Needless to say, it’s very frustrating, and there have been moments where I’ve begun doubting God’s plan and what He spoke to me. Can anyone relate? Well something the Lord has shown me over the course of the last three months, and especially the past two weeks, is that I can’t leave any room for doubt, in my mind or in my life. But how do we do this? Let’s start by looking at the source, the Bible.
When in Doubt:
When we are having moments of uncertainty what does the word say about not doubting? James states when we are believing God for something we must have faith and refuse to allow doubt to creep in.
But when you ask God, you must believe. Don’t doubt him. Whoever doubts is like a wave in the sea that is blown up and down by the wind.James 1:6 ERV
Have you ever been to the beach or seen a video of waves crashing onto the sand? James is saying just like the way it rolls in and then recedes, we shouldn’t allow our faith to come and go the same way. We should stand firm in our faith and trust that God will come through for us, even if it isn’t exactly like we pictured He would.
According to Hebrews we are given a description of the word faith;
Faith is what makes real the things we hope for. It is proof of what we cannot see.Hebrews 11:1 ERV
One version says that Faith is the substance of things we hope for, the evidence of what we can’t see. When we hope in and look forward to something we rest in the assurance that it will happen, even if we don’t see it yet. It is similar to a woman having a baby. In the first few months she may not see evidence of her being pregnant, may not even feel it yet inside her body, yet the substance of her being pregnant is still there because she has taken a test and seen her doctor and it was confirmed she is pregnant. The same is true with our faith. We can’t leave any room for doubt when we ask God for things, because He has a track record of coming through for His people when they have pure motives and it lines up with His will for their lives. What is His will for your life? Well, that is something you need to ask the Holy Spirit to show you. Look at the times in your life where God came through when you thought it was a hopeless situation. Reflect on it and stand firm in your faith.
We have all these great people around us as examples. Their lives tell us what faith means. So we, too, should run the race that is before us and never quit. We should remove from our lives anything that would slow us down and the sin that so often makes us fall.Hebrews 12:1 ERV
If you can’t find any examples of when God came through for you – which I highly doubt will happen -, then look at others and how God has blessed them. This will encourage you to keep going and never give up hope. The writer in Hebrews also talks about how we should get rid of anything that would slow us down in this race of life. This means if there are people or bad habits that are contributing to your doubt, you need to let them go. Don’t worry you have the Holy Spirit living inside of you, He gives you the strength to walk away from those things that are not contributing to your life, but ultimately it is your decision. You must decide to walk away, and say no to the things that are not helping you run well and keeping you from growing in your faith walk.
These are just a few scriptures I’ve been thinking about lately, and I hope this post has really been helpful to you. I encourage you to share below ways you are eliminating doubt from you life and areas where you’ve been believing God for. As always, if you’ve got any prayer requests you would like to share, feel free to list them below or send me a message.
As always, remember you were created for such a time as this and you are a strong and powerful woman of God! Adjust your crown sis, you’ve got this!
