In Others’ Words: If …
Sometimes it’s good to go back to the anchor truths that hold me steady. The faith-realities — no contradiction there — that I turn to over and over again when doubt whispers in my ear or failure taunts me or an invisible someone insists I’m not good enough.
- God is with me. His very name is Immanuel, God with us — with me. (Matthew 1:23 NAS)
- I don’t have to be afraid of anyone or anything — because God is with me. (Isaiah 41:10 NAS)
- God watches over me. Amazing to think that El Roi, the God who sees, watches me. My rising up and my lying down. All my ways. (Psalm 121:5 NIV)
- God holds onto me. There was a time when I turned my back on God, but God never let me go. (Isaiah 41:13 NIV)
- God listens to me. One of my favorite promises: He hears when I call to him and asks for his help. (Psalm 34:15 NLT)
- God’s grace is sufficient for me. I don’t have to be perfect. I can “stand in the wide open spaces of God’s grace.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV; Romans 5:1-2 The Message)
- If God promises it — yesterday, today, or tomorrow — it stays true forever and ever amen. God is trustworthy — and I don’t ever have to doubt him. (Psalm 18:30 NLT)
Am I doubting myself? No. Am I fending off failure? No. Am I allowing someone, other than God, to evaluate my worth? No.
Today I’m just testing the anchors. And they’re holding steady.
