Last week, I learned that I can’t stop a thought with a thought, I have to speak and not just anything but what God’s word says concerning the matter. I must say what God has said.
I was praying and I had this flood of thoughts from no where that “I was wasting my time, I’ll never amount to anything, I’ll always struggle and that I should stop sharing my faith”.
I knew these thoughts were not from God but in the moment, I couldn’t stop them and right when I was going to give in, another thought came “Ask Me for help”. This was the Holy Spirit speaking to me.
Immediately I did, the negative thoughts stopped and I felt this flood of peace and heard “You’re My child, I love you”.
This is a perfect example of 1 John 4:18 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment”. If I didn’t experience / receive His love, I probably would have spent days or weeks depressed and just feeling so heavy.
The next time you experience a flood of negative thoughts, in that moment, immediately ask God for help or you could start speaking what God has said about you. Start speaking out ALL the promises you know that’s in the word because through Christ, those promises are available to us.
Have a amazing week ahead! ❤️
