Our morning message was brought by Rev. Marcus McDougle his scripture Jeremiah 20:1-13. Subject: Let it out.

Food For Thought:  We cannot perhaps hinder the suggestion of doubt from coming to us any more than we can hinder someone in the street from swearing as we go by; consequently, we are not sinning in the one case any more than in the other.

Just as we can refuse to listen to them or join in their oaths, so can we also refuse to listen to the doubts or join with them. They are not our doubts until we consent to them and adopt them as true. When they come we must at once turn from them!

We must turn this matter over to the Lord’s side and trust him to keep us from falling. Tell him about our weakness and our long-encouraged habits of doubt. We must keep our eyes on Jesus looking away from ourselves and away from our doubts, holding fast to our faith without wavering because he who promised is faithful.

Rely on his faithfulness, not on our own. If we cultivate a continuous habit of believing, then sooner or later all of our doubts will vanish in the glory of the absolute faithfulness of God.
