The best way to combat negative thoughts and overcome negativity in general is to fight back with God’s Word. The following 4 step process on eliminating negativity will help with identifying lies you’ve agreed with so you can replace them with God’s truth from the Bible.
I remember a time in my life when I believed I might be “joy immune.” Depression had stolen my joy. I learned through that experience that we sometimes have to fight for joy (and, some days, our fight is harder.) On the days when I have to fight for joy, these are promises that I stand on.
When it seems impossible and your search turns up no answers, doubt and despair may tempt us. We must remember, God is able and faithful despite our difficult circumstances.
When God makes a promise, He fulfills it. Are you waiting for a move of God in your life? As you watch and wait for God to fulfill promises, what are you looking for? What do you see?
God is faithful. The question is can we trust Him in the midst of our trials? When we believe God will fulfill His promises to us, we can look at our difficult circumstances and maintain our hope.
