You doubt yourself because you’re just not sure if you have what it takes – right? You’re not alone and just to set the record straight – you’re perfectly normal in feeling that way. EVERYONE doubts themselves, including me. It’s not about whether or not you have doubt – but, it’s ALL about what you do with it. Will you choose to believe the doubts or will you stand in the truth, believe in who God created you to be and press forward?
I need to tell you today what your doubt WON’T tell you or remind you of.
You HAVE what it takes. You were created with a unique set of skills, gifts talents and abilities that are combined in such a way that there is NO ONE just like you. You are unique and you HAVE what it takes.
You’re not trying to earn it, deserve it, or be good enough for it, you HAVE it. God gave it to you and everything you need is inside of you.
God will use the years and experiences in your life to build on it, make it grow and bring “it” to it’s fullest potential – so when doubt creeps in telling you that you don’t have “it” don’t listen. Keep pressing forward. Keep fanning the gift of God that you have received (2 Timothy 1:6) and let it burn and shine bright for the world to see.
The world will try to knock you down and make you feel mediocre – because that’s how most of the world feels – but you are not of the world -only in it – so BELIEVE that you have it – believe in God’s ability to develop it and trust that you were made for it.
I’m not sure what “IT” is for you – but I’ll bet that you do.
There’s only one YOU – and no one else can do “IT” exactly the way that you can. Doubt’s are just questions in your mind and you don’t have to agree with them. BELIEVE and your halfway there.
That’s my two cents for the day.
