You Say This, God Says That

Throughout life, we love to feed off of the thoughts and lies we tell ourselves in our head over and over again. “I can’t do it.” “I’m not worth it.”…

Throughout life, we love to feed off of the thoughts and lies we tell ourselves in our head over and over again. “I can’t do it.” “I’m not worth it.” “No one loves me.” Sound familiar?

We love telling ourselves lies that linger in our head and tear us down. These thoughts are thoughts of the world that society loves to tell us. It’s easy for a thought like this to repeat in our heads when we’re feeling down in the first place. God never wants us to feel the pain of feeling like we’re alone and not enough. There are so many things that we say that God proves false.

“I can’t do it.” –> “You can do all things through me.”

We all have our struggles and times when we think we can’t keep going. It’s human nature to want to give up on something when it becomes too hard, whatever it may be. God wants us to know that through him, anything is possible.

Matthew 19:26 says, “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’” There are so many things that have occurred in my life that I can attribute 100% to God. I know that so many of my circumstances are because they appeared through God and in God. So please, don’t give up just yet! God is working without you even realizing it.

“I’m all alone.” –> “I am always with you.”

The world does a good job at making us feel lonely and afraid. While friends and even family can leave you all alone, God never leaves your side.

Isaiah 41:10 says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Not only is he with us always, but he gives us the strength and power to get us through each and every day. Talk to him and lean on his guidance. You’ll realize you aren’t as alone as you think you are.

“No one loves me.” –> “I love you unconditionally.”

How much does God love us? An incomprehensible amount.

We, as humans, can’t even feel the amount of love that God has for us. He is the perfect, caring father that loves each and every one of us unconditionally.

Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

This verse reassures me of God’s love every time I feel like it starts to fade. God’s love never fades! Nothing can separate us from Him and how much he cares for us. He is the most loving a father could possibly be!

Next time one of these thoughts pops into your head, remember the truth of who God is. He is loving, caring, honest, trustworthy, and so many other things. Now it’s up to you to believe that!
