If you started today worrying about what might go wrong, I encourage you to stop and refocus your mind on these five words:.
Slow: Take a deep breath and slow down. When you walk in step with God, you will learn that His love is not measured by a teaspoon—it’s measured by the bucket loads.
- God’s love is deep and wide.
Time: Take a minute or two to consider God’s goodness.
- Psalm 34:8: Taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oppose: Don’t yield to catastrophic thoughts that are characterized by words like must, never, and always. These three words are usually false. Discipline your mind so you think about the hope and joy you can have in Jesus.
- Romans 15:13: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Promise: Claim the promises the are rightly yours. You are not some pauper, you are a child of the King.
- The key that gives you access to God is not your strength—it’s God’s grace.
I’ll close with some words that can open the door of your mind to some life-changing thoughts:
Deuteronomy 31:6: Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
