The following truths are designed to bury bad habits and renew our thinking so new habits can be built. Repeat these daily for thirty days and watch what God does in your mind and life.
1. I’m free to step out in faith because God is ready to take the weight of my fears. “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:6–7).
2. When I aim for eternity and holiness, my earthly needs will be fully met by God. “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).
3. I can be certain that God will reward every single step I take to honor Him. “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).
4. My next big step of faith is not reliant on my natural ability, but God’s supernatural strength. “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control” (2 Timothy 1:6–7).
You never have to get stuck again. These truths will strip off the old thoughts that have covered our minds and allow truth to give us hope. It’s more important to invest time in speaking truth to yourself than trying to fight off lies. Repeat these often and watch radical change continue in your life.
