How To Make Changes That Last! Part 2

GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU TRANSFORMATIONAL THOUGHTS FOR OLD FEELINGS
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord...” Isaiah 55:8-9

You make changes that last when you exchange your thoughts for God's thoughts. When you change your thoughts you will change your actions and ultimately your feelings. Here are some examples of how you can change your thoughts for God's!

I’m isolated and I feel all alone. Solution: Build new, godly relationships.
Psalm 92:13-14, “... planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green...”
Proverbs 22:11, “He who loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have the king for his friend.”
I’m too depressed and discouraged. Solution: Focus on God’s strength.
Romans 8:28, “... we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him...”
2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
1 John 4:4, “You... are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”(see also Joshua 1:8-9)
I’m not as good as everyone else. Solution: Stop making comparisons.
2 Corinthians 10:12, “For we dare not... compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
Psalm 139:14, “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made...”
I’ll never get it right and I’ll never be happy. Solution: Remember God is working in you.
Philippians 2:13, “for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”
Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Romans 8:28
The future scares me, what if I mess up? Solution: Fear not-- God is leading you!
Psalm 37:23, “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.”
2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
I just don’t think that I can do it. Solution: Doubt your doubts & believe your beliefs.
Mark 11:22, “And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God.”
Romans 10:17, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

My Back Story- Week 1- How To Break Your Confidence Crisis

My Back Story-  Part 1 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”   Hebrews 10:35 Confidence maintained in your mind, produces rich rewards in your life. @KevinGerald Key Thought-  Life Is Better When Confidence Is Bigger “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”   Hebrews 11:1-2 (NLT) Faith  is an action, based on a belief, supported by confidence  Confidence  is trust, certainty & boldness in a person or thing.  “The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?  When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.”  Psalm 27:1-3 (NIV) When You Are In A Confidence Crisis, You Will Feel: Inadequate  --  Inferior
