31 Days - Day 22

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life




As we fill our hearts and minds with Truth, we can defeat the lies we tell ourselves, and the lies Satan whispers in our thoughts.

Compare negative thoughts to the Truth God’s Word, the differences amaze me:
My thoughts: I want to give up.
God’s Word: Be committed (Philippians 4:13, Galatians 6:9).

My thoughts: I’ll feel lost.
God’s Word: He watches my paths and establishes my ways (Proverbs 5:21, 4:26).

My thoughts: No one loves me.
God’s Word: He loves me more than life (John 3:16).

My thoughts: I’m ugly.
God’s Word: I’m wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).

My thoughts: I’m all alone and no one understands me.
God’s Word: He will never leave me. He has plans for my life (Deuteronomy 31:6, Jeremiah 29:11).

My thoughts: I’m just not good enough.
God’s Word: I was created in His image (Genesis 1:26).


When the enemy tries to slither in with false accusations, we must be ready to combat him with what God’s Word says about us. To get started, evaluate your thoughts and pray for wisdom to distinguish the voice of the enemy.

Condemning thoughts that steal your confidence of who you are in Christ aren’t from God. Let’s commit today to renew our minds with the Word of God each day, and replace those worn-out, deceitful lies with truth.
