August 16 The Truth of God’s Word

Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, [even then] in this will I be confident.
PSALM 27:3

I have discovered that being confident in who God created us to be is a key to living the joy-filled, overcoming life Jesus died to give us.
The devil is constantly trying to introduce thoughts into our heads to make us lose our confidence. The mind is the battlefield, and the devil lies to us through wrong thinking. He tries to tell us we aren’t good enough, we’ve made too many mistakes, God is angry with us—any thought that would make us doubt the love God has for us. If we meditate on those wrong thoughts, our confidence begins to fade.
The key to winning the battle of the mind is to fight against the lies of the enemy with the truth of God’s Word. You don’t have to dwell on wrong thoughts; instead you can believe the promises of God and boldly declare those promises over your life.
I encourage you to confidently declare what the Word of God says about you, such as: “I am more than a conqueror through Jesus (Romans 8:37). I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13). I am triumphant in every situation because God always causes me to triumph (2 Corinthians 2:14).”

When the devil tries to lie to you, boldly declare the truth of God’s Word over your life.

Readings: 2 Corinthians 2:14; Romans 8:37; Philippians 4:13
