Every time when I use to hear someone say you need to believe in your self, I would say under my breath, "You aren't suppose to believe in yourself, you are suppose to believe in God."
But recently when I really pondered that phrase, I realized there really is some truth in it after-all and it is really not that far off.
Because when we truly believe in God, then we believe who he said He is. And we believe He does what He says He can do. We believe we are who He says we are. And we believe we can do what He says we can do!
Wow, isn't that so powerful and amazing!
So If we believe God is who He said He is, does what He said He can do, and we know who we are in Christ, and what He says we can do then we can believe in our selves. We can believe that we can do all things through Him who strengthens us.( Philippines 4:13)
We can believe that we can be overcomers. We can believe that we can be victors. We can overcome addictions, fears, strongholds of bitterness, anger, and unforgiveness. Because greater is He in us than he that is in the world. ( 1 John 4:4 )
And true love cast out all fear! ( 1 John 4:18 )
He has equipped us with what we need. We only need believe that He is for us and not against us. He is our strength. Our refuge. Our strong tower.
~ It's time that we believe that we are who He said we are and that we can do what He said we can do!
