Lamentations 3:24 I say to myself “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore I will hope in him.” (NLT)
Child – What are you saying to yourself? Who or what is your focus today? Is it worry and despair or gratitude and hope?
Your peace can come only when you direct your self-talk to Me and My blessings. Listen to what you are saying to yourself. I AM still in control no matter how frightening the world seems to be. And I promise to never leave you nor forsake you.
You are My beloved child, bought by the precious blood of My Son. You are fully adopted into My family. As My child, you can rest in complete assurance that you are loved and will be taken care of because you belong to Me.
Pay attention to your thoughts. Bring them in line with the truth of My Word. It tells you that you are chosen and special to Me. Thank Me for that truth and concentrate on the blessings you already have. Gratitude and praise will lift your thoughts to Me and I will bring you joy and peace. But you must choose to bring all thoughts in line with what My Word says.
What you think and say to yourself is vitally important. Don’t let Satan steal your peace. You really are in charge of what you allow your mind to think about. Choose life, child! I am always here with you and I want the best for you.
