The Instant Replay
Replacing the Negative
We can fill our minds with positive biblical principles. By reading and memorizing God’s word and also through biblical self talk. It helps us to replace and push out those negative thoughts that steal confidence and joy. We renew our minds by training ourselves to recognize what is true. The only way to know what is true is by what God has told us in His Word.
Biblical Self Talk
This is the Worst Road
Picture this, you are driving down a road that has several potholes in it. In Michigan this is pretty much the norm. In your mind you think, “This is the worst road.”
Every time you come to this road you repeat that same phrase. “This is the worst road,” and the same for the next time, and the next time. Before long, you believe that this road is in fact, “The worst road.”
Likewise, if we tell ourselves, “I, Sonya, am a daughter of the King. I am in the will of God, and can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength.” If I keep repeating this to myself, then I am replacing a negative belief with biblical truths.
The Distinction Between You Are and I Am
Is Their a Difference?
“You are the Lord, the Famous One, Great are you Lord.”
In my experience, the same is true. By addressing myself with “I am’s”, I claim and develop these biblical qualities. As a result, I will believe and become who God created me to be. My self–talk will change. I will be more confident, peace–filled, and grateful.
