When in Doubt Seek Him Out

Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.

(Psalm 62:8 NIV)

The enemy always tries to bombard me with doubt, making me rethink certain things. Thankfully, when I seek Him out, God comes to my aid and protects me from the enemy’s attacks, so I can once again see things from His perspective and trust Him.

I’m sure you’ve been there too. Those times when Satan made you doubt your choices in life, especially the ones that you strongly believed were God’s will for your life. It doesn’t take much. Satan will use anyone and anything to make us question God’s will. He did it to Eve and he’ll continue to do it to us, especially if we’re choosing to follow God. The good news is that if we seek Him, God can shield us from the devil’s lies. In today’s verse, David, who had experienced the enemy’s fiery darts first hand, urged the people – including us today – to join him in trusting God, pouring our hearts out to Him because He is our refuge (Psalm 62:8). So the next time the evil one throws another one of his fiery darts at you, extinguish them with the truth of God’s Word and pray.

In times of doubt seek God out.
