Our pastor recently posed the question, "Are you for you?" A personal question to grapple with and honestly consider. Are you for you, or are you your own worst critic--one who critiques, looking for flaws, highlighting mistakes, ruminating on bad decisions, and evaluating personal short-comings? Do you find yourself routinely talking yourself out of a God-given dream, desire, or ambition because, at the core of your inner being, you have become your own heckler? That inner voice that whispers or screams, "How could I be so stupid?" "I can't do anything right." "I am no good." If this is sounds vaguely familiar to you, then you are not for you. You are being unduly hard on yourself.
Seeing ourselves as God sees us is vital to living an abundant, successful life. God is already on your team, isn't it time you began to be excited about you and the life that God has predestined for you?
1. Is it difficult to believe God is for you? If so, why?
2. Are you for you? If not, list every reason why you are not for you.
3. For every reason that you have listed, identify its origin.
4. Begin to pray and declare biblical truths (scriptures) that will dismantle every reason you are not for you. (See the "Words of Life" page for suggested Biblical decrees.)
Overcoming negative core-beliefs may be challenging to do alone. I encourage to call:
