Peace, Love, and Confidence

1. Why should I say I can't, when the Bible says I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength (Philippines 4:13)

2. Why should I fear, when the Bible says God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7)

4. Why should I allow Satan control over my life, when He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4)

5. Why should I accept defeat, when the Bible says that God always leads me in victory (2 Corinthians 2:14)

6. Why should I be depressed, when I can recall to mind God's loving kindness, compassion, and faithfulness and have hope (Lamentations 3:21-23)

7. Why should I worry and be upset, when I can cast all my problems on Christ who cares for me (1 Peter 5:7)

8. Why should I feel alone, when Jesus said He is with me always and He will never leave me nor forsake me (Matthew 28:20; Hebrews 13:5)

9. Why should I feel like I'm cursed or have bad luck, when the Bible says that Christ rescued me from the curse of the law that I might receive His spirit (Galatians 3:13,14)

10. Why should I be unhappy, when I, like Paul, can learn to be satisfied in all kinds of conditions (Philippines 4:11)

11. Why should I feel worthless, when Christ became sin for me so that I might become acceptable to God (2 Corinthians 5:21)

12. Why should I feel that others are out to get me, when I know that nobody can be against me when God is for me (Romans 8:31)

13. Why should I feel like a failure, when I am a conqueror in all things through Christ (Romans 8:37)

14. Why should I let the pressure of life bother me, when I can take courage knowing that Jesus has overcome the world and its problems (John 16:33)
