When in Doubt… There are a million different endings to that phrase, but God’s message to you is
When in Doubt, Don’t Fear. Joshua was a guy in the Old Testament who had just inherited the nation of Israel from Moses, and his task was to get about a million people to cross over the desert and into their promised land. Also, there were giant warriors in the land that he would have to defeat—and everybody was to afraid to go. Talk about a time when you would be kept up at night and want to turn back! But God’s message to Joshua over and over again is: “This is my command–
be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).
When You Are Afraid The uncertainty of life can be very scary sometimes. Mortgages, family problems, health issues: they all cause us stress. In addition, normally the things God asks you to do are outside of the lines of what you think you can do.
They are too big. But that gives Him a chance to show how He can do anything, despite all of your weaknesses. He didn’t tell Joshua, “Don’t be afraid, because I have made you a great leader.” Or, “Don’t be afraid, because the enemy is weak.” No, He said, “Do not be afraid or discouraged.
For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9). Basically, Don’t be afraid, because I have it under control.
So your mainstay is not your abilities, but God’s presence. What are you facing? Foreclosure? Divorce? Kids going astray? Job or relationship difficulties? If you just depend on yourself, stress is inevitable, because everyone deep down doesn’t believe they have what it takes. And you don’t! But with God, He can supply what you need. Paul said, “And I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). Take a moment right now and release your doubt to God. Let it go like the tide of the ocean goes back into the sea. And in its place, take in the security that God is completely by your side. Remember, He promises:
“Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).
