8 Promises To Hold Onto When Doubt Creeps In

Are you that person who allows uncertainty and apprehension to bring doubts or do you choose a different option?

Often when God renews our hope, the enemy attacks us by bringing doubt into our mind. We can find ourselves retracting back to questioning God. Will He keep His promise?

The answer is if we live by faith and He has already confirmed that He is trustworthy, we have to fight the enemy’s lies.

The enemy knows that if he brings doubt, we will then question whether what God said is true, but we have to exercise our faith to trust that God will make it happen.

I found myself having to remind my ‘self’ of the story in Joshua 1. I have read this passage numerous times, shared it with others, but yet now I was having to fight discouraging thoughts with God’s Word.

Walking in the footsteps of the famous prophet Moses who led the great Exodus of the Israelites and wrote God’s law must have seemed daunting to Joshua, yet in this chapter God promises Joshua that He will be with him just the way He was with Moses.

  • ‘Be strong and courageous’.
  • ‘Be strong and courageous’.
  • ‘Be strong and courageous’.
  • ‘Be strong and courageous’.
  • ‘Be strong and courageous’.

Five times God promises Joshua ‘strength and courage’ as He prepares them to cross over into the Promised Land!

Here are 8 promises to hold onto when doubt creeps in

As the enemy tries to bring doubt into your mind, this is when you need to fight back disempowering thoughts as you take your questions to God, by speaking out God’s promises over your mind and soul. 

‘Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged.  God, is my God, is with me every step I take.’

Stop and take a moment to repeat the following promises.

Hear God saying these words directly to you, from Joshua 1:1-9

1| I won’t give up on you; I won’t leave you.

2| Strength! Courage! Give it everything you have, heart and soul.

3| Don’t get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure you get to where you’re going.

3| Ponder and meditate on My Word, day and night, practice everything written in it.

We need to read God’s Word and pray.

We will only win if we fight the enemy’s fiery darts with the sword of the spirit holding the shield of faith. Then His peace will calm our minds and soul.

5| Then you will get where you are going; then you will succeed.

6| Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage!

7| Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged.

8| I God! your God is with you every step you take.

  • Do you feel like God has forgotten you?
  • Do you feel like your prayers will never be answered?
  • Is your mind questioning God?
  • Is your soul troubled?

Then I say to you today trust in the Eternal One! Don’t allow doubts to hold you captive.

This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. [Joshua 1:9]
