Feeling Confused?

Are you feeling confused about your situation? Maybe you’re just not sure what to do when life seems so crazy and unpredictable? Is God still there? And if he is, why isn’t he showing you the way…?

Wait! Stop everything! While it is very easy to fall into this trap of doubt, remember it is just that, a trap. God is not the God of chaos or confusion. He brings clarity and confirmation to all our situations, if we trust in and rely on Him.

So what do you do? First, don’t trust your own feelings of confusion. Lean on God and His Word for clarity and trust that He’s right all the time.

Just as confusion is fed by doubt, so clarity is fed by conviction and belief.

Use the verses below to help redirect your thought-life and focus on the clarity that God wants us all to have. We don’t get to know the future, but we are blessed with promise after promise from His Word about our life. What happens next is up to Him, but trust that He hears you, He sees you, and He knows your heart.
