Last week in my JWC department meeting, we were taught a lesson in self-defense. How to protect ourselves if ever under attack. This got me to thinking….everyday we have thousands upon thousands of thoughts. What do we use as protection against negative, ungodly thoughts? How do we shield ourselves against the thoughts that keep us bound in fear, anxiety, and worry? Thoughts of can’t, won’t, and not good enough?
Over the next couple of days I will share some scriptures that are my “go to” verses. We are to hide the Word in our hearts so that when the enemy attacks us we don’t have to dig deep to be reminded of what God says about us. Believe it or not, God has a word for every situation. Isn’t He awesome! He does not want His children to be misguided, confused, or chained to mediocrity. He wants us to be the best, and unfortunately, our thoughts can keep us from being just that. Join me as I share scriptures that have helped me overcome those unwanted thoughts.
So let’s start with self. We can be our own worst enemy. Psalm 139:14 says, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well.” God made us in His image. He made us exactly the person He wanted us to be. Everything we need to be great we are already equipped with or able to obtain. Go be great!
