During this pandemic fear and doubt are running rampant in our world. Some people are depressed and experiencing anxiety attacks because of what’s going on.
Today, I’m calling you to be a doubt-breaker. I’m calling you to dismantle and destroy every satanic thought that tries to get you to doubt God’s goodness, protection, love or mercy. I’m calling you to help others demolish doubt in their lives with the good news of Jesus Christ. Here are some powerful doubt-breakers you can use to overcome the attacks of the enemy:
1. You are greatly beloved.
Closed to end of Israel’s 70 year captivity in Babylon, the angel Gabriel came to the prophet Daniel to deliver a message to him. During the message he says to Daniel, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!” (Daniel 10:19) I believe this is what the Lord is saying to you today. You are greatly beloved. You have nothing to fear. Nothing to doubt. He’s with you and He’s giving you His peace and strength during this pandemic.
If you didn’t know it, God’s love for you is so huge that it can’t be measured. It has no beginning and it has no ending. Isn’t that amazing? Every time you sense Satan trying to attack you with doubts about God’s love for you, strike him with these words, “I am greatly beloved. I have no fear!” It kills him to hear that and for you to know and believe that. This is what it truly means to submit to God and resist the devil. The result? The devil will run from you.
2. It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Jesus used this statement to cancel fear and doubt in the disciples’ lives about God’s care and provision for them. He told them not to run after money like the world does. He told not to belittle themselves by doubting how much God cares for them. I love this statement from Jesus,
Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? – Luke 12:24
Always know you are more valuable than the birds or any part of the animal kingdom. The point Jesus is making is – if God is taking care and providing for them, then surely He will take care and provide for you.
3. Your prayers are heard.
In this pandemic season and in all seasons of life, it’s vital for you to know that God is hearing you. Satan loves to cast doubt in the minds of believers of whether or not God has heard their prayers. The apostle John dismantled and destroyed that thinking in his epistle. Look at what he said,
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. – 1 John 5:14-15
Look at this confidence booster! The apostle John is encouraging us not to let uncertainty and distrust ruin our prayer life. As long as we are praying in the will of God, we can have deep assurance that God has heard us and is granting us our requests. Sounds incredible? It is! ??
