Over the past 15 years, I have worked at leaving my past behind and walking in my new identity in Christ.
One thing that has been critical to this journey is surrounding myself with verses about what God says about me and my new identity in Him.
The Bible is filled from cover to cover with verses about who we are in Christ and about the fact that:
- God's thoughts about us are numerous.
- God's plans for us are prosperous.
- God's redemption of us gave us new life.
- God's sacrifice secured us in His family.
And these verses line my war room wall (part of it is now located in my pantry and the other part in my journal) to remind me of what God says about me in those times when the enemy wants to remind me of my past.
And when he reminds me of my past, I remind myself of what God's Word says because that's even better than reminding the enemy of his future.
It's better because instead of being focused on the enemy, I turn my focus immediately to God's Word.
I fill my mind with Scripture.
I replace the lying thought with biblical truth.
I catapult myself out of negativity into victory!
