You are an overcomer!
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8
I do believe this single verse in the Bible would solve about 99% of our problems if we could truly apply it to our lives every day. Some of the biggest battles we face are battles of the mind. Worry, doubt, fear, sadness, and so many other negative thoughts bombard us as we go through the day. This should not be! As children of God, we are on the winning side. We are more than conquerors...we are victorious through Jesus Christ!
Try this. Make a set of flash cards with encouraging Bible verses, and every time a negative thought comes through your mind, get out your flash cards and read one of them, out loud if you have to! Don't entertain the thoughts Satan attacks you with...but counteract them with thoughts of victory! He will eventually get tired of hearing you quote the Word and he will have to move on! We are overcomers through the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony! Proclaim it!
