But overcoming doubt isn’t just about feeling better; it’s about getting back into faith that only comes from the Word of God (Rom. 10:17).
The Holy Spirit in us brings us into fellowship with God the Father. The Holy Spirit does not build fear in us because, where the Spirit of God is, there is liberty and freedom.
For you have not received a spirit of slavery that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba! Father!”. -Romans 8:15 (ISV)
That’s the way it’s been since the beginning – the Spirit and the Word working together. Think of the creation narrative in the very first chapter of Genesis. The Holy Spirit hovered above the face of the deep when God spoke all things into existence. God the Father gave the command, the Word was released, and the power of the Holy Spirit partnered with that Word to bring about creation.
