When Doubt Creeps In

Updated on October 24, 2010

I presently went through a long hard trial. In the beginning when it first happened immediately the Holy Spirit spoke to my spirit and said, "Everything is going to be OK". I actually had a peace about it all and trusted the Lord. Unfortunately, as the weeks and months went by I let doubt creep in. Slowly but surely it had a foothold in my spirit that caused pure havoc in my spirit.  I worried and spent way too much time thinking about it. In-between my bouts of worry and doubt I still continued praying.

What caused the doubt? Listening to people and there premonitions or negative thoughts. Allowing myself to believe their doubts and fears. I began to say to myself 'maybe it was just me and not the spirit". Satan at the root of doubt and is one who is mostly responsible for it. But we make our own choices of what and who we are going to believe.

Now that everything is OK I know God taught me not to waver and not to sink through any trial. Just to keep trusting in Him for he is faithful always.

Doubt takes away from your faith. Doubt can seep in like water in a leaky boat and eventually sink you. We must patch up the holes with faith to stay afloat.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear , though the earth be removed , and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled , though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Psalm 46: 1-3

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for anyone on the Hubpages who is going through a trial right now that you will fill them with joy and a peace that passeth all understanding. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

      Thanks for being so transparent, you have no idea how much it blesses others. One thing I have come to understand about Father is that He will always come in with a word for us to hang on to as I know you have come to realize. Then the enemy brings in the Job's comforters, the doubters the peace stealers and they often wear the clothing of our best friends,our family our own sister's in Christ. Sad but true. I know you will get to other side, I can hear it in your words. Bless you sister.

      Good Hub! The Devil is always casting doubt, if he did it to Jesus trying to make him doubt that he was the Son of God! we can expect nothing less!

      Matthew 27:40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

      Luke 4:3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.

      Luke 4:9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:

      Sky321: Thank you dear sister for this Hub of Hope. Seldom have I ever doubted My Father God to handle anything. I have though, asked why it is taking so long for things to get resolved. As a matter of fact I am going through a trial of time as this is being written. I have been out of work, and unable to find new employment for 2 years and 9 months, and at 62 years of age, it is harder and harder to find an employer who is willing to take on someone my age. I know God is doing His best to find something, but it does not prevent me from being worried and afraid.

      Brother Dave.

      Doubt can create many emotions in us all, emotions which are foreign and emotions which change us. Interesting been thinking about you this past few weeks as we are few us Canadians on HP and prayed that God would hold you close.

      Stay strong in the Word and take what others say back to the Word. Be ever watchful for deceit in others. Fear generally follows, Joyce Meyers wrote a book called "The Battlefield Of The Mind" a great read and maybe one which may help.

      Blessings and Hugs
