Overcoming Uncertainty (1 Peter 4:8-19)

Overcoming Uncertainty (1 Peter 4:8-19)

“Uncertainty surrounds us, and can cause stress, anxiety, and doubt. There are many examples in Scripture of uncertainty in people’s lives and how they responded to it, like Joseph and his family situation (Gen 37-50), Malachi questioning God (Mal 1:1, 2:17), the invalid man that Jesus healed in the gospel (Jn 5), Paul in prison, and the list could go on. There are many ways that we see in the Bible to help us overcome anxiety. We need to remind ourselves of God´s love for us as that is ultimately reassuring (1 Jn 3:1-3), helps us to focus on loving him and others, and not on our uncertain situation (1 Pet 4:8-19). We also need to remind ourselves of checking our responses to the situations in our lives. How we respond is a large part of who we are as a person, and can help us temper our approach to uncertainty. We also need to surround ourselves with friends who will go the extra mile in speaking truth to us and encouraging us in our walk (Mk 2:3-11). We also need to feed our faith that God will always provide. If we don’t feed our faith, complacency can set in, and complacency breeds uncertainty and discontentment. This can be done by expressing gratitude to God (Ps 9:1-2). If we ask God to help us do all these things we talk about, it won’t get rid of uncertainty in our lives, but it will certainly help how we respond to it and approach it.”
