Focusing your thoughts on things that are of good report.
Jesus asks us in Matthew:
Well, faith comes by hearing the Word of
God (Romans 10:17). The more you hear and read God's promises to you,
the more your faith will reign over your worries.
kids don't live in lack:
"Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing" (Psalm 34:10 NLT).
will open doors for you:
"I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me." (Revelations 3:8)
can accomplish more than you
"In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us" (Romans 8:37 NIV).
God living in you is greater
than your tasks!
"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4).
will be your strength and
"The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army" (Habakkuk 3:19a).
will get you though stressful
"He makes my feet like hinds' feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!" (Habakkuk 3:19b).
You've just read what God's Word says about you and your life situations. If you are stressed about something that was not covered here, find scriptures where God reveals His truth about your circumstances.
Believe it or not, God has already given you a promise for every problem you will ever face. You just have to find out what it is, and stand on it.
There comes a point when you will have to decide – Do you believe God’s promises or not. Plain and simple.
Of course, you do believe Him. So, don't focus your thoughts on what you see, think or feel. Focus them on what you believe.
And then the things that seemed so
stressful, won't seem so stressful anymore.
