You have an amazing idea for something, it is unbelievable and you can not wait to tell someone and share that vision and plan.
Then doubt sets in, the familiar cold feel of hard doubt. Who would want to listen to your idea anyway? Who would take that seriously – take you seriously?
I can’t recount how many times this has happened. So many great ideas, down the pan because I haven’t been able to jump that fence of unbelief and so it has pestered me into thinking I am not good enough and not capable of anything.
What can you do when this happens?
I asked a few people in the music and media industries their advice on this subject;
Sly Montalvo, Vice President of Operations at hopebeat.net says,
“If a battle is not between you and your God-given destiny, it is simply a distraction. Don’t fight battles that don’t matter.”
Tennessee CHH Rapper, Godz Warriah, spoke on it like this;
“Well, basically, self doubt stems from comparing your life with others. When you accept the land that God has for you and walk in it and be comfortable with that, you will be better off.”
Both are great answers and ways forward, basically, put God first in your life at every turn and then mostly everything will be right and true, obviously you will still get times of testing but you’ll be on the road to begin with and will therefore know, straight away, how to deal with each problem that comes your way.
The way of following Jesus, is the right way to travel and I think most people in the world know this to be true, even some Atheists, they just choose to try their own wisdom and push their own luck for as long as possible, before they fall off of the bandwagon or the Holy Spirit knocks them from their perch – we’ve got to pray for these folk!
Stay strong in the spirit! Walk the righteous road! Share ideas! Pray hard for everyone!
