When Doubt Creeps In


  
Sunday Scripture

and a

Song

"Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen."
Matthew 21:21 (NLT)

Doubt: a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction. 

We all try to have faith "like a mustard seed". That tiny powerhouse of energy within us that, when nurtured, will blossom into a productive, living source that will carry us through the trials of this life. 

But what about when doubt creeps in. That unwelcome feeling that threatens our security. It creeps in through the back door and stands there, darkening the doorway. It wants to block the Light. 

Doubt brings Fear.

If we begin to entertain doubt, our next unwelcome guest is fear. And fear will steal our joy.

Don't let doubt even get a foothold in the door. Stomp out your doubt with FAITH.

Faith is our strong belief in God, our constant companion, our deliverer. Putting our faith in God as our confidence and our trust renews our strength to combat doubt and fear. Keeping our faith in God prohibits fear and doubt from creeping in to steal our joy.

Nurture your faith, keep it strong to combat fear and doubt. Keep your eyes upon Jesus, and your thoughts will not wander to doubting. We can trust in God. He's proven it. And He is always there for us. No matter what we face.

"When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer."
Psalm 94:19 (NLT)

One of my favorite contemporary Christian recording artists is a man who knows a thing or two about fear. Through his faith in God, Jason Gray overcame a debilitating stutter to become a successful singer-songwriter who shares his faith and humbly shares his story with his audiences. When Jason speaks, his stutter is evident, but through his songs, God has blessed him with the power to share His love and never once does he stutter.

This song, "No Thief Like Fear" is from his album, "A Way to See in the Dark"
