Ps Grant: How to Silence Doubt and Embrace Faith 

How to Silence Doubt and Embrace Faith

You may be wondering, “Who is Jesus?” Let me tell you, there is no one like Him. The Bible reveals to us the extent of His love, so profound that He gave His life for us. In John 15:13, it says, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” This is what Jesus did for us. His love isn’t just about words; it’s about action. It’s about sacrifice. The unparalleled love and promises of Jesus led Him to give His life for us, assuring us a place in His glorious presence. 


What about His promises? They are as solid as a rock. The Bible reminds us in 2 Corinthians 1:20, “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through Him, the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.” This means that all the promises God has made to us are fulfilled in Christ. We have the assurance of victory in our most challenging times. Sometimes we speak to the wrong people, align ourselves with the wrong people and the result is not good. To find direction, we need to speak to God and discover His promises for us! God’s promise for your life is always going to be bigger than what you see, bigger than what you hear, bigger than what you have understood, and bigger than what you fear. 


Finding Direction and Overcoming Fear 

Just like Moses and the Israelites in Numbers 14, we often find ourselves standing before our own ‘promised land.’ They were called to “go up” and conquer the land, but they faced obstacles. They saw giants in the land, and their hearts filled with fear. But what did God say to them? In Numbers 14:9, He said, “Do not rebel against the LORD. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them.”  It’s a lesson for us all. We too can conquer our giants when we seek God’s direction, follow His guidance, and silence our doubts. There is safety and victory in trusting God’s promises. 


Quiet Doubt, Embrace Faith 

The strength that comes from having Jesus in our lives is our beacon of hope in the stormiest of seas. Friends, it’s time to quiet our doubts and fears. To do this, we must feed our faith with God’s Word. Remember, “Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ” (Romans 10:17). Look to the Lord for guidance and strength. Just as Moses and the Israelites were instructed to “go up” in the Old Testament, we too are called to lift our eyes to the Lord, especially when things seem impossible. For as it says in Mark 10:27, “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.‘ ” Embrace faith, silence doubts, and let the love and power of Jesus guide you through your most challenging times. In seemingly impossible situations, keep your eyes lifted and don’t give up. With faith, nothing is impossible. When you hear the voice of faith, respond and say yes, I believe it. I know it’s going to happen. That’s when you’re going to quiet the voice of fear in your life.


Stepping into the Promised Land 

Are you ready to step into your promised land? Are you ready to conquer your giants and overcome your fears? Then, put on your spiritual armour, hold fast to your faith, and embrace the path of faith. Remember, you are not alone on this journey. Jesus, our Rock, our Strength, our Redeemer, is with you every step of the way. God wants you to be successful, to walk in peace and righteousness and confidence, knowing that your life is in Him. Just when you think it looks too difficult, remember that God is the God of the impossible. Stand on His Word and come by faith.


Friends let’s continue this faith journey together. Let’s strengthen each other, encourage one another, and hold each other accountable in our walk of faith. I encourage you to join our church community, participate in our activities, and most importantly, delve deeper into the Word of God.  


Remember, the power of Jesus’ love and promises are real and available to us all. All we need to do is accept it, embrace it, and live it. Are you ready? Let’s go!
