Take control before they take control of you. Negative thought patterns are working hard to become your default thought process.
WORRY AND FEAR are devastating and debilitating. Worry is meditating on the devil’s thoughts. Worry is full of doubt.
I can’t say it any plainer than this, worry is a lack of trust in the Lord. When you worry, you are trusting in yourself and not God. When you are trusting in your own strength, you have cause to worry. When you are worried or fearful you are really saying to God, “I believe you will forsake me. I believe you will fail me.” That is what God hears every time you worry.
Read these scriptures below and believe they are meant for you.
- Deuteronomy 20:4 “For it is the Lord, your God, who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies and give you victory.”
- Deuteronomy 3:22 “Do not fear them, for it is the Lord, your God, who will fight for you.”
- Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and steadfast; have no fear or dread of them, for it is the Lord, your God, who marches with you; he will never fail you or forsake you.”
When you are worried or fearful it may help to remember these are just thoughts trying to steal your peace. You don’t have to be controlled by them. You have authority over your mind and your thoughts. You get to choose what you meditate on.
