A Thought for the Day


Why should I say I can't when the Bible says:
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength?"
(Philippians 4:13)

Why should I fear when the Bible says, "God has not given me a spirit of fear,
but of power, love and a sound mind?" (2 Timothy 1:7)

Why should I lack faith to fulfill my calling in life, knowing that God has allotted me a measure of faith? (Romans 12:3)

Why should I be weak when the Bible says: The Lord is my strength of my life and that I will display strength and take action because I know God? (Psalm 27:1 & Deuteronomy 11:32)

Why should I allow Satan supremacy over my life when He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world? (1 John 4:4)

Why should I accept defeat when the Bible says: God always leads me in triumph? (2 Corinthians 2:14)

Why should I lack wisdom when Christ became wisdom to me from God and God gives wisdom to me generously when I ask Him for it? (1 Corinthians 1:30 & James 1:5)

Why should I worry and fret when I can cast all my anxiety on Christ who cares for me? (1 Peter 5:7)

Why should I remain in bondage to my sins knowing that there is liberty where the Spirit of the Lord is? (Galatians 5:1)

Why should I feel condemned when the Bible says I am not condemned because I am in Christ? (Romans 8:1)

Why should I feel alone when Jesus said He is always with me and He will never leave me nor forsake me? (Matthew 28:20 & Hebrews 13:5)

Why should I feel cursed or that I am the victim of bad luck when the Bible says:
Christ redeemed me from the curse of the law so that I might receive His Spirit?
(Galatians 3:13,14)

Why should I be discontented when I, like Paul, can learn to be content in all my circumstances? (Philippians 4:11)

Why should I feel worthless when Christ became sin on my behalf that I might become the righteousness of God in Him? (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Why should I have a persecution complex knowing that nobody can be against me when God is for me? (Romans 8:31)

Why should I be confused when God is the author of peace and He gives me knowledge through His indwelling Spirit? (1 Corinthians 2:12)

Why should I feel like a failure when I am a conqueror in all things through Christ? (Romans 8:37)

Why should I let the pressures of life bother me when I can take courage knowing that Jesus has overcome the world and it's tribulations? (John 16:33)


Dear God, help me to trust Your promises and live them every day. Amen
