Battling Doubt

Some good suggestions from Jared Wilson. Here's the outline:
  1. Concentrate on the historical fact of the cross.
  2. Do not seek refuge or advice with those who would shame you for doubting as if they never did.
  3. Pray. Or, more specifically, hurl yourself at God.
  4. Re-focus your doubts toward your own failings and inability. Doubt yourself, in other words.
  5. Read your Bible. More specifically, meditate on Scriptural promises related to your area of doubt.
Read the whole thing.
