“For as he thinketh in his heart,” Proverbs 23:7 KJV
“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21 KJV
In the midst of my own discouragement and depression I realized through the Spirit that anytime I get this way I am lacking in hope I’m basically saying I do not believe what God says about me is true. Therefore we should tell ourselves everyday
1. I am a son or daughter of the King
2. I am full of hope because I believe Gods word is true
3. I am full of His grace, his grace is limitless
4. I have The Holy Spirit of the living God right inside my heart that I carry around with me 24/7
5. The God that created all that we see from nothing can and will create victory in seemingly hopeless situations
For what you concentrate in your mind on the most your will and your body will go into action. For what the mind thinks on good or bad everything else will usually follow it. First you think it then you do it. So, therefore when you focus on your failings, focus on your defeats, focus on your weaknesses you will never climb up out of that pit until you start thinking differently. If you think about how often your carnal flesh gets the best of you as long as you think on it the carnal flesh it will continue to defeat you.
“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 KJV
The above verse is your victory statement. Think on these things, your will and body will start walking a different path. We must believe what God says in His word is true if we do believe this discouragement and depression cannot be found in your neighborhood. Why? Because you refuse to give it a place in your mind. I will align my mind with the Holy Spirit and walk in victory.
