Dealing with Doubt!
Founder, KingdomFive! Student Ministries
When I was growing up, I always second guessed myself. Always. It was hard for me to be confident about my decisions, opinions, and beliefs. You name it--I was insecure about it. In Christ we know there is no insecurity, only 100% assurance. YET....doubt seems to show up in our lives whether we want it there or not! As a young person thirsting after God, know that doubt is an enemy of your purpose. It will show up to make sure we are not confident enough to do what God has asked (Jeremiah 1), or we won't move forward unless we have such and such signs from Him that He will be with us. We can learn four key lessons from how the Lord helped Joshua get ready to take the reigns of power after Moses died, to help us battle fear and doubt for good.
God is clear about what He wants from you. Joshua 1: 2
Know that God is not doubting. If he gave you a command, he has confidence in you and in the ability He put in you to accomplish that mission. God is not second-guessing His choice about using you.
"No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you." Joshua 1:5
"For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success." Joshua 1:8
