The single greatest tip I have found for moving beyond self-doubt is learning to spend time each day praising God. I set aside twenty minutes per day to praise God. I may do it early in the morning on my knees, or mid-day on a walk, or I may use my car time as my praise time. The results of these times of praise have been life changing for me! What I have discovered is that if I will change my focus from my own inadequacies to God’s almighty abilities the Holy Spirit empowers me to overcome my doubts.
Friend, God doesn’t want you living in bondage to self-doubt. He wants you to recognize your own weaknesses but also recognize that with God all things are possible. (Luke 1:37) Our weaknesses make us more willing to depend on His power. Self-doubt can paralyze. Today, when the voices of “I can’t” scream in our mind, try changing your focus. God promises that you can do all things through Christ who will give you strength. (Philippians 4:13) Try spending some time today praising God for His almighty strength.
