“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8).
Are you losing hope? Are you feeling hopeless because you find it difficult to see a bright future?
Overcome With God’s Word
The secular media is good at inundating us with sad news.
But before we get too overwhelmed with depressive news let’s not forget that the greatest threat is not the evil forecast but fear itself! There are staggering reports of millions of people affected by anxiety, depression and other mental health-related conditions.
The devil is an opportunist! The Bible tells us, the devil is not lazy but he is roaming about looking for opportunity to take advantage of the vulnerable. “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8). That is why it is important to learn how to stay in faith.
The cares of life can steal our peace of mind if we don’t know how to win the victory over wrong negative thinking by guarding our minds with the promises of God. Instead of talking defeat God wants us to think and talk His promises.
The Bible tells us God’s Word will accomplish His will in our lives. Scripture tells us in Philippians how we can experience God’s peace. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7).
I wonder what you are focused on today? The predictions of this world so called “experts” or what God says in His Word.
God Is Able To Deliver You
When we are weak God wants to show His power and reveal His glory to us. Jesus said, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” (Luke 18:27). In the natural you may not see a way out of the problem but in the Spirit, there is a way. With God there is always hope. Choose to believe the promises of God for your life. Instead of taking on the stress of your situation give all your burdens to Jesus and trust Him to give you His peace in exchange.
God is faithful in every situation. And we can rest in His Promises. Why don’t you take a moment now and download the FREE PDF – 30 Day Faith Confession below as a prayer guide for meditation and speaking the blessings of God over your life. Please download PDF here.
