Overcoming self-doubt

Romans 12:19 My friends, don’t try to get even. Leave room for God to show his anger. It is written, “I am the One who judges people. I will pay them back,” says the Lord.

Forgiveness is stronger than revenge. When I felt offended or hurt by someone in my using days my response was “Don’t get hurt get even.” My philosophy was if someone hurt me I would hurt them back, but worse. Always trying to prove I was stronger and tougher than everyone else. Even though I often didn’t feel that way.

Often we try to prove our authority and strength over others. Which in my own experience is usually an indication of our fear and self-doubt. Instead of feeling fear and self-doubt we need to hand our hurts and offense over to God and trust him to deal with it.

  • In what areas are fear and self-doubt stopping you from repairing relationships?

Prayer: Lord help me today to overcome my feelings of fear and self-doubt
and put my faith in You.
