What We Tell Ourselves

Our words are powerful! I came across this quote recently, and wanted to share it here:

Self-talk is so very important! To that end, it’s absolutely vital for us to meditate on God’s truth about us, and let Him change us from the inside out each day.

Otherwise, this thing called life simply won’t work for us. Shoot – even (especially?) when we do these things, life can still be very challenging, but at least we’re not alone. The Holy Spirit is always with us, and guides us through the peaks and valleys of our lives.

Dear God, thank You for reminding me that my words are powerful, and can impact my life – and the lives of others – for good if I choose to believe and trust in the promises that You’ve laid out for me in the Bible. Help me to remember that whatever You say is always right and true; and the more time I spend reflecting on Your Word, the more You will continue to change me – including my thoughts, feelings, and emotions – for good from the inside out. In Your name I pray, Amen.

  1. It is nice to know I am not the only one that talks to myself.
    I regret that there is cell phones now. It used to be fun the looks on peoples faces when I would get in an argument with myself in say a grocery store on whether to buy something and then get the folks around me to take opposing opinions on it. I learned that in psycho cybernetics class (a form of psychiatry).
    Rather than have self thoughts I take them captive with Bible verses because really it is just satan trying to get under my skin.

  2. So true, we can actually unknowingly put curses on ourselves too. “I hate myself”, “I’m useless”, “I’m so ugly and worthless”. I used to say things like that and oh boy… Now I’ve stopped after it manifested so horribly over a couple of years to oppression. I didn’t think it was that serious until I realised I was giving the devil power over me. I prayed, deliverance, and I’m free! I still struggle with it but I use all my might to not say words like that but instead tell myself how beautiful I am. 🙂

    1. Praise God, Faith! 🙂 Thank you for sharing a part of your testimony here with me. I too have struggled with negative and anxious thoughts, and you’re right – it invites a certain level of demonic activity into our lives that we certainly don’t need.

      Thank you for this important reminder! God bless you, my friend.
