You can’t reason with anxiety, negotiate with doubt, or compromise with fear. They’re like fire, consuming everything in your mind and heart until they leave them darkened and scarred.
When a negative thought begins to burn, remember you’re fully empowered to overwhelm it with what God is saying about who you really are, and what’s possible in your circumstances. Jesus said when we receive him into our lives, we have a constant stream of living water in us. Dwelling in what you’ve read in his word, heard from him in your heart, and experienced with him in your life, releases that river of righteousness, peace, and joy. You displace the negativity in you, and bring blessing to everyone around you.
