This statement Bobby Conner brought to us last month has been anchored like an arrow lodged in my chest ever since. He said, "God and the Devil are both asking you the same question." So much of what we do or don't do, the choices we make, the risks we take, and even down to the way we think are rooted in our belief about ourselves.
A few years back I discovered a life-giving tool that saved my mind from darkness. That tool was speaking, declaring, and praying God's blessings & scriptures over myself. I began by using a cool little book that I found tucked away that was given to me by a spiritual mom years ago, the cover tattered reads, "Who I am in Christ". Inside that torn red cover are scriptures listed, "It is written, My Heavenly Father says I am..."
Most of the time we are, in our thought life, agreeing with what the world says about us, or what the enemy says about us, but if our thoughts were filled with what the Word of God says about us, how would that change the way we live?
Think about it! What if the broken record that played in your head was;
According to 1 John 3:22, this is the truth of God in my life!
One thing that really changed in my life when I began, not just reading the Word, but personalizing it in prayer over myself, was that my thought life began to change. Negative thoughts, like a cloud covering, rolled away, and I saw life brighter, which in turned allowed me to walk in confidence in my identity in God. Wanna try it? Today I am gonna list a few promises from the word for you to pray & declare over yourself, try it every morning like a daily vitamin and see if your days get brighter!
