Fear is a powerful concoction that holds us back from moving forward. Maybe these words sound familiar:
“I’m not good enough.”
“I’ll never amount to anything.”
“No one likes me.”
“No one will notice if I’m gone.”
Fear allows these thoughts to rattle around in our minds and take root. With words like that being spoken out of your mouth, it’s easy to fall in step and believe the lies.
Today, take hold and capture those thoughts! Don’t let your mind wander aimlessly, but allow your self to take hold and train your mind to think positive. For every negative word you speak, replace it with a positive one. Also, tell fear that today is its eviction notice. You will no longer be the pawn in its twisted game that leads to destruction and hopelessness. Today, you are going on a path towards joy.
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Jesus has already overcome worry and fear. It can no longer reside inside of you! Have peace in knowing that Jesus bared it all, so that we could live with total freedom.
Help me to find perfect peace in you. Instead of listening to the voices around me help me to hear your voice the loudest. Help me find positive influences in my life that push me forward towards you rather than pull me backward away from you. I love you.
In Jesus name,
