Anonymous asked: What if you begin to lose faith in yourself? How do you ask God to help find yourself once again? I think God wants me to go on a journey to discover who I truly am, but I'm afraid. :/


Answer:

Good evening from this side. Thank you for sharing with me and this blog your question, your courage to ask is already a blessing :) I’ve been through the same feeling of “losing faith in myself” but by God’s grace, He has kept me going. Here are the things to consider…

What do you mean by losing faith in yourself? This can go from self-esteem/self-confidence to Christ-confidence. I’ll try to share on both :)

Self-esteem/self-confidence is grounded on self. It’s basically looking and dwelling on what we can do, what we can’t do, what we want to do, and what we expect from ourselves. Christ-confidence is a whole new thing, it does go about being confident, but it looks and dwells on what we can do, what we can’t do, and ultimately on who God is and what He can do for us through the Lord Jesus.

Followers of the Lord Jesus will experience discouragements every now and then. We are in a dark world that needs saving, and the Lord Jesus wants to use us. Satan and his forces is always at work to change that, hurt us, and pollute our lives with doubt. This may or may not be able to shake us, but the battle is real and we can do something about it :)

  • Process in prayer. Let God know how you’re feeling, what your thoughts are, and even your worries. Then ask God, “Where is this doubt coming from, Lord?” Ask for the Holy Spirit to lead you into understanding what happened, what started this doubt and how it got you to losing faith. Open up your heart to God, keep praying esp when you feel like you don’t know what else to say. Dwelling in God’s presence - that is prayer :) And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. (Romans 8:26-27)
  • Read God’s Word. Make time every day, esp as you open up your heart to God, to open your Bible and read from the living Word. Christ-confidence comes from knowing the Lord Jesus, we can only get the right perspective of the Lord if we invest our time reading about Him. We take courage in knowing that The Word is God. We can count on the Bible: For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. (Hebrews 4:12)
  • Walk by faith. With everything that God has impressed upon you through the Holy Spirit and the Bible, dwell on it and walk with it. The followers of the Lord Jesus mature as they actually follow. This means we receive as we experience :) Pray, read God’s Word, and walk by faith. As our circumstance is revealed to us, look to what God has revealed to the world. Dwell on what He has prepared and what the Lord Jesus is doing for us. See Philippians 2:13, John 10:27-28, and Romans 8:34.

Carrying faith on our own strength will not take us far, only God’s grace can do that for us. We should surrender our hearts to God and be fascinated by the experience of being constantly saved by grace.

As you feel that God’s taking you on a journey to getting to know yourself, make it a goal to walk in obedience but align your heart with the desire to get to know Him more :) That will make the difference and the Lord Jesus will not disappoint. Life’s journey in His sovereign power.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

God loves you :) A BLESSED WEEK IN GOD’S EMBRACE

I am a woman seasoned with experiences — only redeemed by the grace that comes from the Lord Jesus — and I agree with the apostle Paul. This brings us back to God’s design :)
Women should learn quietly and submissively. (1 Timothy 2:11)

"Why is it so hard to follow Jesus? Because we want Jesus and our sin. Sure, we don’t call it sin but anything that is in contrast to Father’s character and will are sin." -- Ptr. Paul Van Buren →

lorraineanne:

A timely reminder…

Repentance sets apart God’s people from those who speak of God but still do not follow God. Repentance acknowledges sin and says no to sin. Repentance is longing to experience being like the Lord Jesus. Repentance is only driven by God’s grace. Repentance is always and…

Is this true for you?

While you have your breath and ability to search and experience, make time to be in Christ right now wherever you are. Look into the Book of John chapter 3:16-17 and pray to God with the trust in the Lord Jesus. God is faithful, every Word of God proves true. In the Lord Jesus, we are alive and new, old nature gone, and with more to look forward to. Seek God knowing He loves you :)
