David said, The Lord who delivered me out of the paw of the lion and out of the paw of the bear, He will deliver me out of the hand of this philistine. And Saul said to David, Go, and the Lord be with you! –1 Samuel 17:37
To be honest, a lot of us are negative thinkers when we find ourselves in challenging situations. But to move past trying times, you have to take your negative thoughts and turn them into positive thoughts.
God wants to take you on a “truth journey.” through studying His word, which produces amazing results. It will help you purge your negative thoughts and give you the ability to see the positive in your situation.
Being positive is powerful. And a big part of being positive is simply reminding yourself of your past successes.
When David faced the giant goliath,, he remembered the lion and the bear he’d already defeated, and it gave him courage in his current situation.
If you’re going through a difficult time right now, let me remind you that this probably isn’t the first challenge you’ve faced. You survived the last one (and probably learned some valuable lessons through it) and you will survive this one too.
Like David, remember your past successes. Then go to the Word and see what God says. Better days are on their way. God promises it!
