Do you ever find yourself waffling between self-confidence and doubt? Between believing in your God-given gifts in one moment, then feeling worthless and useless in the next?
I’ve been there lately, and I have a feeling I’m not alone in this. So I thought I’d share some promises straight from God’s Word that have kept me going in those moments of doubt. I pray they encourage you as much as they have me. (Keep scrolling for shareable images of each verse!)
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” ~ Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.” ~ Psalm 37:4-6 (NLT)
“For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.” ~ Psalm 66:10-12 (NIV)
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” ~ Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” ~ Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” ~ Isaiah 40:28-31 (NIV)
Here are fancy versions of the verses that you can share on Pinterest or Instagram. 🙂
Does one of these speak to you in particular? What seasons of life have you been facing lately? Any promises you’ve been clinging to that you’d like to share?
