RIGHT TALKING CURES WORRY
I sure bring up talking and the mouth many times in my devotions. That is because our mouth can either help us or hurt us and we need to get it under the control of the Holy Spirit.. It is a daily process. In James chapter 3 it says "No man can tame the tongue." Isn't that the truth? Take some time and read that entire chapter.
Positive confessions spoken out loud help cure worry. If you tune in to God the cares of the world seem to fade. What good does sitting around speculating about what might happen going to do? Answer. Nothing. So what is the alternative? Speaking God's word out loud and letting it get own in your spirit. I guarantee you if you do this you will feel better. No matter what the situation, turn it over to God.
Here are just a few good positive scriptures to read out loud.You may not be where you can speak out loud and if not still read them but later when alone read them out loud.
I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. See 2 Corinthians 5:21
I am the head and not the tail. See Deuteronomy 28:13
My children shall rise up and call me blessed(for moms) See Proverbs 31:28
I am precious in God's sight. See Isaiah 43:4
I will run and not be weary. See Isaiah 40:31
I will resist Satan and he has to flee. See James 4:7
God has a plan for my life. See Jeremiah 29:11
My children will not depart from the godly training they received. See Proverbs 22:6
I can do all things through him who gives me strength. See Philippians 4:13
No weapon formed against me shall prosper. See Isaiah 54:17
I will give God my worries as he cares for me. See 1 Peter 5:7
He is my shelter in a storm. See Isaiah 25:4
God is my help in times of trouble. See Psalm 46:1
God will direct my path. See Proverbs 3:5-6
I am not afraid because God is with me. See Psalm 23
Not afraid of what mere man can do to me. Psalm 118:6
There that should help you for the day and for the week. Saying things out loud helps. Try it. When you know that you know that you know that God is in control and say so what reason do you have to keep worrying?
PRAYER: Father I want to lean on you for freedom from doubt and worry. Help me not listen to wrong or negative messages but to fill my head with good and positive thoughts and Bible verses. I am thankful you are in control. In Jesus Name. Amen.
