What do you do with doubt?

 

Song 518 – Standing on the Promises

 

1

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,

Thru eternal ages let His praises ring;

Glory in the highest I will shout and sing,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

Refrain

Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises

of God my Savior;

Standing, standing,

I’m standing on the promises of God.

 

2

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

By the living word of God I shall prevail,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

3

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,

Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,

Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,

Standing on the promises of God.

 

Isaiah 26:3, 4, John 14:27, 16:32, 33 – It’s peace you need

 

Matthew 9:6 – The same power that healed diseases is the same power that speaks to your depressed heart

 

SC 51. 1, 2 – Your past evil experience should not determine your present trust in God

 

Mark 11:24 – Faith and Prayer

 

Colossians 2:6 – Walk in the Spirit of the one you have received

 

“IT IS NOT YOUR SPIRIT THAT IS GOING INTO HEAVEN; IT IS CHRIST’S SPIRIT.” Will you have it? Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” [Revelation 3:20.] Then I ask, How is it that so many of you are saying you do not know whether you are accepted of God or not; that you want to find Jesus? Don’t you know whether you have opened the door? Don’t you know whether you have invited him in? If you have not, invite him now. Don’t wait a moment. Open the door, and “LET JESUS” IN.” {Ms48-1891.52} – {1888 905.2}

 

Luke 15:18-20 – God sees you a far off. He’s not the one withholding himself but it’s you lingering to draw to him

 

Isaiah 49:15 – God is not a man

 

KJV Psalms 32:1-2, 5-8, 11

1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. 5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. 6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. 7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. 8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. 11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

 

KJV Hebrews 11:6

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

 

Oh, the Christian’s last days may be fragrant because the beams of the Sun of righteousness shine through the life, diffusing a perpetual fragrance. Oh, what reason have we for joy that our Redeemer poured out His precious blood on the cross as an atonement for sin, and by His obedience to death brought in everlasting righteousness. You know that today He is at the Father’s right hand, a Prince of life, a Savior. There is no other name wherein you can trust your eternal interests, but in Christ you may rely fully, implicitly. “Christ has been loved by you, although your faith has sometimes been feeble and your prospects confused. But Jesus is your Saviour. He does not save you because you are perfect, but because you need Him and in your imperfection have trusted in Him.” Jesus loves you, my precious child. 3LtMs, Lt 46, 1879, par. 6

 

KJV Luke 17:10

10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, “We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.”

 

Shall I ask for a sign?

 

Isaiah 7:10-12 KJV

[10] Moreover the Lord spake again unto Ahaz, saying, [11] Ask thee a sign of the Lord thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. [12] But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the Lord.

 

I have thought how it must grieve the Spirit of God to see how little confidence those who claim to be children of God place in their heavenly Father. There are many who claim to be traveling the Christian road to a better country, but they seem to be led into great uncertainties. They express a great desire to have confidence that they are indeed the children of God, and they have pled before God that He would show them in a dream or give them some wonderful exercise of feeling as evidence that He did bless them. Is there anything equal to the promises in the Word of God? Here is my assurance. I plant my feet upon the promises of the Word of God. If God has so loved fallen man that He has not withheld His beloved Son in their behalf, how much more shall He not with Him freely give us all things! We want to gather the precious pearls of God’s promises and present them right before Him. Our God has said it, and His Word stands in truth from everlasting to everlasting.  . 5LtMs, Ms 16, 1887, par. 6

 

Many seem to think that they must beg pardon of all the world for being a Christian. John did not regard it so. He says, “Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.” [1 John 3:1.] The Christian does not take a step down to a low level; he is constantly progressing forward, and the religion of Jesus Christ never degrades the receiver. It refines his taste; it sanctifies his judgment. Why should it not, when he is in connection with a pure and holy God, and the power which is invested in God He imparts to His sons and daughters? “Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, … and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” [2 Corinthians 6:17, 18.] Do we esteem the favor of high heaven above all the favors upon the earth? Here is the promise that we shall become members of the royal family, that we shall be children of the heavenly King. And when heart and flesh shall fail here, we have a hope as an anchor of the soul cast into that within the veil, both sure and steadfast. That anchor fastens into the broken body of Jesus Christ; and there is not one of us who is living in harmony and obedience to God [who] should [not] be full of joy.  . 5LtMs, Ms 16, 1887, par. 16

 

How many can comprehend the full meaning of these words spoken by our heavenly Father? Here He says to man, “You are accepted in the Beloved.” [Ephesians 1:6.]. There is no excuse for man to remain in transgression and sin; because strength has been provided for him in Jesus, that he may overcome. The God of heaven Himself is working by His Spirit.. 5LtMs, Ms 18, 1887, par. 5-5LtMs, Ms 18, 1887, par. 6

 

You are to believe God just as you would believe and trust a friend who stood by your side, and that friend had never denied you a request, never deceived you. You are to believe that Jesus knows just what you want, and He will give you the very things that you need. Thus you are to go right along, saying, I have laid my burden upon the Lord, and will not lay it upon any human being, God will hear and answer my prayers. The devil may say, You don’t feel any better, you feel just as miserable as ever. Tell him, I believe God will do just as He said He would; Jesus has said it, and I believe it. 5LtMs, Ms 20, 1887, par. 10-5LtMs, Ms 20, 1887, par. 11

 

We have nothing to discourage us, because the end is nearer than when we first believed, and we know how we felt when we first believed. Why, we did not think of talking unbelief or against each other. We had no time for this. Let us come up to the help of the Lord now, to the help of the Lord against the mighty. I never loved Jesus more than I do today, and if one half of you should pour out your bitter words against me, it would not change my course one hair. I know the devil will take me as a target, and I know that he wants me to take such a course as to make you ashamed and discouraged. But I will look to Jesus and in His name go right ahead. We have a truth that will sanctify the soul and make us holy, if we will only let it. Will we be sanctified through the truth? God help us to let His help and grace into our soul.. 5LtMs, Ms 20, 1887, par. 19

 

What do you do with doubt?

 

You have been on the doubting line, but now take your feet right off this, and tell what God has done for your soul, and rejoice in the light of truth. When Satan tells you you are too wicked to be saved, tell him, Christ came to save just such sinners as I, and throw the promise of God right in his face, and you will come out all right.. 5LtMs, Ms 20, 1887, par. 15

 

Revelation 12:11 KJV

[11] And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

 

Song 282 – I Hear Thy Welcome Voice

 

1

I hear Thy welcome voice,

That calls me, Lord, to Thee;

For cleansing in Thy precious blood,

That flowed on Calvary.

 

Refrain

I am coming, Lord!

Coming now to Thee!

Wash me, cleanse me, in the blood

That flowed on Calvary.

 

2

Though coming weak and vile,

Thou dost my strength assure;

Thou dost my vileness fully cleanse,

Till spotless all, and pure.

 

3

‘Tis Jesus calls me on

To perfect faith and love,

To perfect hope, and peace, and trust,

For earth and heaven above.

 

4

All hail, atoning blood!

All hail, redeeming grace!

All hail! the gift of Christ, our Lord,

Our Strength and Righteousness.
