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.
Dear almighty Lord,
I’m struggling in this time Of fear and doubt.
Suddenly it appears as if everything I do is wrong.
The enemy comes to me Offering me his lies, telling me I’m lost and I built my life on sand.
Still, I push back. I dig in my heels and resist For I know in the core of my heart,
In the center of my being, Your Spirit burns like a mighty fire. I am your child.
This is my identity, My eternal destiny, Paid for by the blood of Christ.
Nothing can remove me from your hand. May your love consume me, And your grace overwhelms me.
Your promises give my spirit wings. Stand with me again, oh Lord, rise up!
Drive out the enemy With your mighty hand. Let all my fears be washed away By your cleansing grace.
May I stand tall and confident In your presence As Christ stands with me.
In Jesus name, Amen.
