Romans 4:18-20 (AMP) 18 [For Abraham, human reason for] hope being gone, hoped in faith that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been promised, So [numberless] shall your descendants be. 19 He did not weaken in faith when he considered the [utter] impotence of his own body, which was as good as dead because he was about a hundred years old, or [when he considered] the barrenness of Sarah’s [deadened] womb. 20 No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God,
Everyone feels fear. We fear big things and we fear little things. One of the things we have in our life that cause us to fear is doubt. We have self-doubt and we may even doubt God. Or we believe God – but we may not believe He will do something for us.
Doubt came to Abraham but he made a choice not to believe the doubt that fell into his head. Doubt is nothing but confusion and it wants to steal your destiny. If you are feeling doubt, take time to stop and examine what is in your heart. Not what you think, but what you feel down inside what is the right thing to do.
God admires boldness and confidence. Not the kind of boldness that is set in pride, but the kind of boldness where we know we can do all things with the help of God. We need to set our mind to have God-confidence. God confidence is a confidence we don’t have in ourselves but a confidence we can have because we know God is on our side. It’s okay to fall down once in a while when we step out in confidence and it’s not God’s will for us and we were unsure – we just need to make sure to get up and continue to live with God-confidence.
Doubt will always work against our faith. We wonder if we should do something or if we should not have done something we already did. Just step out and do things. If we make a mistake, the world is not going to end.
