When Doubt Creeps In
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.
