How To Believe In God When In Doubt And Uncertainty

When it comes to doing those things that God places in our hearts, He wants us to be bold and courageous, not shrinking back in fear and doubt. 

To live boldly means that we’re willing to step out in faith to try new things and pursue our God-given dreams and passions without letting the fear of doubt overshadow our faith. 

Doubt is a fear that can bring a lot of confusion. Have you ever thought, Did I make the right decision? I don’t know. Maybe I did. Well, maybe I didn’t. 

We can go back and forth like that in our heads forever, but I’ve found that when I’m confused, it’s better to stop, turn off my brain and just look at what’s in my heart—not for what I think I should do, but what I believe I should do. 

Sometimes it becomes very clear what God wants us to do, and other times it’s less obvious. But before you jump ahead, give God a chance to speak to your heart. 

It’s also common to experience doubt after we’ve made a decision. But going back and forth between two options only makes us miserable!

When we struggle with doubt and indecision, it feels like we’re trying to go in two different directions at the same time. And it’s tormenting to be torn between two places, not able to decide what we believe. 

It’s in those moments we have to choose whether we are going to believe God or the enemy...God or our feelings...God or what people tell us...God or our circumstances. 

God is greater than your mistakes. He doesn’t want you to live in fear and doubt, always afraid to make a decision or move forward. He wants you to be confident in your ability to hear from Him, then boldly step out in faith.
