This is a test….
You may be reading this and wondering what test is this that I must pass for my God? It is the test that I can do anything if I put my mind to it, in Jesus’ Name.
~”I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”~Philippians 4:13, KJV~
For the past several weeks, I have been doubting myself. Because I have been doubting myself, I have been doubting God. Doubt is a sin that needs to be stripped away from myself in order for me to become more confident in me and the abilities that God gave me for success.
When I was working at the daycare one day, one of my co-workers challenged me. She told me that in order for me to be able to do my job well that I needed to have full confidence in myself.
At first, I continued to doubt myself. After spending time in prayer with the Lord, His Holy Spirit allowed me to realize that doubt is not of God, but of Satan.
That Satan is a LIAR and he will do anything or whisper the slightest lie in your ear to cause you to have doubt in yourself. That is his ultimate goal in order to cause you to fail. The truth of the Word of God says that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
~”Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”~John 14:6, NIV~
I had a choice to make. I could either dwell on my own doubts and fears that I could not do my job at the daycare properly or I could rebuke doubt and fear in order for the Truth of God’s Word to settle in my heart. This would also allow for me to take courage and not give into my own fears and the fear of Satan.
~”For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”~2 Timothy 1:7, KJV~
What harm could Satan do to me at my job? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING because I am a child of God. I am a noble princess of the Most High. I am His prized possession, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
~”Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”~1 Peter 5:7, NIV~
~”But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”~1 Peter 2:9, ESV~
By remembering these Truths of God, I gain confidence in myself as I have confidence in Christ. By remembering these truths of God, I rebuke the devil with the blood of Jesus because he is a liar. By remembering these Truths of God, I know that I can do anything if I put my heart and mind to it! 🙂
Jesus is all of the Confidence I need. He is all that I need. He is my Everything because He gives me the strength to be able to get my job done at the daycare and DO IT RIGHT!! By the power of the blood of Jesus Christ, I can do all things in Christ who gives me strength.
That devil will not and shall not cause me to doubt myself at my job because God put me there for many reasons, especially to be a nurturing and sweet spirit to the toddlers that I teach. They need me because they need me to be the love of God in Christ Jesus to them.
I now want to take the moment to pray for you, dear reader. Let us pray:
Thank You for washing away my doubts and fears. Thank You that the Confidence that I have in Your Son, Christ Jesus, is all that I and every reader needs. May Your light shine in the little lights of each reader today and may Your great light outshine the lies, doubts, and fears of the devil from any reader today. May each reader see that confidence in Christ is the key to success while simultaneously rebuking the lies, doubts, and fears of the devil. May each reader see that as You build up him or her that You love them and that Your love is great. Do not let that devil take over any reader and may no weapon of that devil prevail over any reader today. Protect the hearts and minds of each reader today as You let each reader know that he or she can do anything that he or she puts his or her heart and mind to if he or she trusts in You. Let the confidence of each reader soar from valleys to mountaintops today. I give You all of the glory, the honor, and the praise as You let these little lights shine today.
In Jesus’ Name,
God bless you, dear reader. Have a good day and good night! 🙂
