The world tells you to believe in yourself and that you can do it. But what happens when your confidence is shaken? What happens when you hit a wall, and it seems like nothing can help you get up again? Or maybe you’re facing a raging storm of problems that just won’t let up. Then self-doubt creeps in, and things get even worse.
In these moments, it helps to return to some basic truths. Dig down to the bedrock, find your footing, and make a stand.
Return to your identity as God’s child. This is the only thing nobody can take away from you. Start building on that indestructible truth. Return to the Cross and the Resurrection. Remember Christ died and was buried for you. He rose again on the third day. Ascending up to heaven, he sits on his throne in glory.
Remember these truths. Reclaim the promises of God. Then let the Spirit of Truth fill you with confidence.
I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me,[a] is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.
Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.
