This week in “A Confident Heart” Online Bible Study, we have learned about AM thoughts (Against Me) and FM thoughts (For Me). Your mind is such a powerful thing, but you need to determine who you want to be in control of your thoughts… Satan or God? “Our enemy knows if he can influence the way we think, then our thoughts will determine how we feel, and our feelings will shape how we live.”
There have been so many times I’ve let the enemy be the one to tell me all of these things that are untrue that cause self doubt and worry. I don’t want to let that happen anymore. It’s time for me to clear my mind by asking Jesus to replace the negative thoughts of insecurity, worry, doubt, and all of Satan’s lies with His truth and His word. I want God to be the one that shapes the way I think, the way I feel, and the way I live.
When doubt comes against me saying I’m not strong enough, capable enough, I’m not the right person, I’m not secure enough, or I’ve made too many mistakes to carry out a role that God has put me in, I am going to remember that “I have been chosen and appointed to bear fruit” -John 15:16 and “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”
– Philippians 4:13
I must remember that God’s love and grace determines my value.. not anyone else’s opinions or standards.
