Step out doubt with faith
God loves boldness and He
wants us to be confident of His
love for us. He wants us to
know without a doubt that we
are made right with Him
through the sacrifice Jesus
made for us on the cross-espe-
cially on those days when we
feel unworthy of His love.
To live boldly means that
we’re willing to step out in
faith to try new things and pur-
sue our God-given dreams and
passions without letting the fear
of doubt overshadow our
faith.
Doubt is a fear that can bring
a lot of confusion: Did I make
the right decision? I don’t
know. Maybe I did. Well,
maybe I didn’t.
We can go back and forth
like that in our heads forever
but I’ve found that when I’m
confused, it’s better to stop,
turn off my brain and just look
at what’s in my heart — not for
what I think I should do, but
what I believe I should do.
Sometimes it becomes very
clear what God wants us to do;
other times it’s less obvious.
But before you jump ahead,
give God a chance to speak to
your heart.
God is on your side,
no matter what
James 1:5-6 (AMP) says, “If
any of you is deficient in wis-
dom, let him ask of the giving
God [Who gives] to everyone
liberally and ungrudgingly,
without reproaching or fault-
finding, and it will be given
to him. Only it must be in
faith that he asks with no
wavering.”
I hope that you noticed it
says, “If any of you” need wis-
dom. God isn’t looking for per-
fect people; they don’t exist. So
no matter where you are, God
wants to help you. Isn’t that
good news?
God will never leave you or
forsake you, and He will
always remain faithful to His
Word. All you have to do is ask
and receive, dismissing the
doubts that set themselves up
against His Word. If you can do
that, there’s no telling what
God will make happen in your
life.
Words of faith bring clarity
and confidence
Romans 4 gives a wonderful
account of the story of
Abraham, one of the great
heroes of faith. Verses 18-19
(AMP) say, “[For Abraham,
human reason for] hope being
gone, hoped in faith that he
should become the father of
many nations, as he had been
promises. ... He did not weaken
in faith when he considered the
impotence of his own body,
which was as good as
dead because he was about
a hundred years old, or

shorter than it would be if we
decided we’d rather murmur
and complain.
God wants to use the chal-
lenges we experience to draw
us closer to Him so that when
our prayer is finally answered
and our day of breakthrough
comes, we’ll be stronger in our
faith and able to withstand any
opposition that comes against
us.
Hebrews 10:36 says, “For
you have need of steadfast
patience and endurance, so that
you may perform and fully
accomplish the will of God,
and thus receive and carry
away what is promised.
It takes boldness to believe
God’s promises are for you and
not just for everyone else.
It takes boldness to cling to
His promises when the world
around you says: It will never
happen.
And it takes boldness to step
out in faith and try something
new. But be encouraged. God
isn’t concerned about you mak-
ing mistakes. He knows you’re
not perfect and He wants to
give you His wisdom and
strength to do everything He’s
put in your heart.
So stop doubting and step
out in faith … and believe
God can do something amaz-
ing in you and through
you.
He wants to see boldness in
you.

the barrenness of Sarah’s
womb.”
Abraham considered the
facts. But he still believed God
was greater.
Verse 20 says, “No unbelief
or distrust made him waver
concerning the promise of God,
but he grew strong and was
empowered by faith as he gave
praise and glory to God.”
Instead of relying only on
what we see around us, you and
I can choose to believe God’s
Word. And we can open our
mouths to speak words of
thanks, like this:
“God, I remember the good
things You’ve done for me and
how You’ve been faithful to
those who’ve trusted in You
through the ages. I’m giving
You praise today because I
know You’ll always be faith-
ful.”
Doubt cannot make you cave
in if you will open your mouth
and war against it with words
of faith.
Be ready to be stretched
in times of waiting
Like Abraham, we all have
times of waiting that God uses
to test and stretch our faith. But
He promises to work all things
out for the good of those who
love Him and are called accord-
ing to His purpose (Romans
8:28).
Honestly, if we can keep a
good attitude throughout the
process, our wait time might be

Dr. Glenn to speak on civil
rights struggles Saturday
YACHATS — The Yachats
Academy of Arts and
Sciences will present local
resident Rev. Dr. Max
Glenn, who will share his
reflections on three decades
of civil and human rights
struggles
and
personal
experiences on Saturday,
May 30, at 6:30 p.m., at the
Yachats Commons.
Among his many accom-
plishments and various
leadership roles, Glenn was
intimately involved in the
Appalachian struggles for
human and civil rights
in the early 1960s; the
desegregation of public
schools in the 1970s; and
the 1980s’ Family Farm
Crisis.
This is his first-hand histo-
ry of events, experiments in
social engineering and major
cultural changes during our
lifetime.
From organizing grass-
roots folks to participate
in decision making, develop-
ing economic alternatives
and lobbying in Washington,
D.C., and state legislatures,
Glenn will share first-hand
experiences.
There is no charge for
this presentation. A donation
of $5 will help cover publici-
ty expenses.
