Doubt

Bible verses about doubt.

Doubt is something that everyone faces at some point in their life, no matter how strong their faith may be. Doubt can shake your beliefs, but it can also serve as an opportunity to re-evaluate and strengthen your faith. That’s where the Bible comes in. There are countless verses in the Bible that offer words of encouragement and guidance in times of doubt. In this blog post, we’ll be sharing 10 of our favourite Bible verses for combating doubt.


Hebrews 11:1 - “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” This verse reminds us that faith is about trusting in what we cannot see. It can be difficult to believe in something that we cannot physically touch or see, but our faith is what gives us confidence in our hope.


Isaiah 43:2 - “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.” This verse reminds us that God is with us through every trial and tribulation. He will never abandon us, and we can trust in His constant presence.


Romans 8:38-39 - “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” This verse reminds us that there is nothing that can separate us from the love of God. No matter what doubts or fears we may have, God’s love is always present and unchanging.


Psalm 18:2 - “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” This verse reminds us that God is our solid foundation. When doubts or fears creep in, we can take refuge in Him and find strength in His steadfastness.


Proverbs 3:5-6 - “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” This verse reminds us that our understanding is limited, but God’s understanding is infinite. By trusting in Him and submitting to His will, we can find clarity and direction in times of doubt.


Philippians 4:13 - “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” This verse reminds us that we are never alone in our struggles. Through the strength that God provides, we can overcome any doubt or fear that comes our way.


Matthew 17:20 - “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” This verse reminds us that even the smallest amount of faith can move mountains. By trusting in God’s power, we can overcome any obstacle.


Psalm 27:1 - “The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?” This verse reminds us that God is our light in times of darkness. When doubts or fears try to take hold, we can find safety and security in Him.


James 1:6 - “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” This verse reminds us that doubt can be a slippery slope. By believing in God’s promises and trusting in His power, we can avoid being tossed around by the winds of doubt.


2 Corinthians 12:9 - “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” This verse reminds us that our weaknesses can serve as an opportunity for God to display His power. By leaning on Him in times of doubt or struggle, we can experience His grace and strength in powerful ways.


Doubt may be a natural part of our faith journey, but it doesn’t have to hold us back. By turning to the Bible, we can find strength, hope, and direction in times of doubt. These 10 verses are just a starting point - there are countless others that offer words of wisdom and encouragement.
