How to Overcome Doubt (So You Can Move Forward in Life)
Have you found yourself struggling with faith, struggling with belief in yourself, and wondering if you're a good enough Christian?
I think we've all been there.
You pray every day, go to church, know the Bible, but deep down you still have doubts.
Exhale, because that is 100% normal!
Both God and the devil are known to plant doubt in our minds. Why would God do this? The answer is actually very simple. God tests us to see if we will stay strong and go toward Him, or break and go toward the world.
This can be incredibly frustrating to deal with, but it doesn't have to define you.
There are steps you can take to overcome this disbelief and it starts with letting God know! Don't be afraid to talk to the Lord so he hears where you are at. By letting Him know, you are opening your heart for His help. Tell God what is giving you doubts, ask for His guidance. He will listen!
In the Bible, many faithful men and women have been recorded doubting their faith. The desire to believe is all that God asks from you at this moment. As stated in Psalm 147:11, the Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.
The last thing to remember is not to stress. Worrying is a sin, and your journey cannot be compared to anyone else's. God will never abandon you, and having doubts is okay. Even if you find yourself questioning God from time to time, remember that it is a part of the journey and it shows God you want to improve your faith.
