My worth does not come from my accomplishments or successes or how people view me. How often I need to be reminded of this. Lately I think I have let doubts get in the way of moving forward, of pressing on. I read this passage this morning:
“I have discovered that no matter how doubtful I feel, I can decide to go forward in faith. My feelings are not me. I am greater than my feelings and so are you. No matter how we feel, we can still choose to do the right thing. Going against your feelings are frequently very strong, but standing against them until you enjoy freedom is much better than continuing to let them run your life and hold you in bondage.
In Joshua 24:15 we see Joshua make a decision. He says, “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, either the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the river, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua made his mind up, and nobody was going to change it. He didn’t make his decision based on what others did. He refused to live under the fear of man.”
My prayer today is for boldness, for confidence….a confidence in Christ where doubts fade away and seem so small. Be encouraged today!
