We all have an inner voice and sometimes it can be filled with negative thoughts. Those days can spiral into a day filled with anxiety. But that's when we can stop, take a deep breath, and take control of those thoughts. We may not be able to do it on our own, but WITH GOD WE CAN! When we remember that all good things come from up above and all the negative self-defeating talk is not from Him, we can begin to claim those thoughts as LIES! We can replace those lies with truth.
I read a great blog today about one way we can fight those negative, self-defeating thoughts. Take time to prayerfully read through Ephesians 1. Make a list of everything God says about you and ask Him to help you believe those statements are true: (I went ahead and made the list for you!)
God has blessed you with every spiritual blessing!
You are united with Christ!
Even before he made the world, God loved you and chose you!
You are without fault in his eyes!
With great pleasure, God has adopted you into his own family through Jesus!
He has poured glorious grace on you, who belongs to Jesus!
He purchased your freedom!
He forgives your sins through Jesus!
He has showered his kindness, wisdom, and understanding on you!
You are a part of His plan! At the right time he will bring everything together in Heaven and on Earth under the authority of Christ—because you are united with Christ, you have received an inheritance from God, and he makes everything work out according to his plan!
He makes everything work out!
God saves you!
He identifies you as his!
He gave you the Holy Spirit becasue you believe in Jesus!
The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give you the inheritance he promised!
He has given you confident hope!
He is above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come, and YOU ARE HIS!
You are made full and complete by Jesus!
..now ask Him to help you believe those statements are true.
