We all face the same obstacles and ask ourselves the same hard questions when going after our dreams.
- Will there be enough money?
- What if I fail?
- How am I supposed to get there?
- Is God really good?
- Does He really have a plan and purpose for my life?
When we say negative things about ourselves and believe that we don’t have what it takes to succeed in life, we actually disempower ourselves in respect to our destiny.
When we doubt that God will provide for our needs, we inadvertently work against God’s provision in our lives. When we question God’s commitment to defend and protect us, we set ourselves up for greater vulnerability. What we choose to believe directly affects what we receive. It is vital that we train ourselves to think only what God thinks and to say what God says. From this foundation, we are empowered to do what God does.
So the real question is what are we going to choose to believe?
We can choose to believe the fears that come up, the lies that the enemy throws us, the feelings inside of us that are screaming at the unknown, or we can choose to believe that God was actually telling us the truth when He said that He is able to do exceedingly above all we can ask or think.
