A Confident Heart Chapter 1: Are you ready to take God’s hand and trust His heart?
Day 2: Beat Up or Built Up
Day 3: Trigger Points
- Day 4: Sometimes Worry Makes Me Wonder
- Day 5: But I don’t Have Anything Special to Offer
Day 6: Measuring Up
Taken in part from Chapter 6
Food for thought: “When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.” (2 Cor. 10:12 NIV)
- If you are breathing you have something to offer. God is not finished with you yet, you are so special to him.
- I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Jeremiah 29:11
- You are enough just the way you are.
- God isn’t waiting for you to be perfect.
- We will disappoint people who love us, because we won’t always meet their expectations. That is okay, God didn’t create us to keep other people happy.
- If you lost a job, or are waiting for a house to sell – nothing is too big for God. The state our economy is in did not take him by surprise. He is able. (Ephesians 3:20)
- This one is for me too – Stop! Quit allowing the enemy of our soul access to our mind and heart. Kick his tail out. If we hear a negative thought, doubt, shame, insecurity, etc in your head it’s not God. Therefore, let’s commit to each other that instead of believing his truth lets expose it as a lie.
Just like on day 2 – It won’t happen just because it’s possible.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I need God the most I resist getting into the word. I know it will make me feel better, I know it will give me peace. Can you relate? After hearing how the 7-day Doubt Diet has resonated in so many hearts I am certain that God wants to use this time, this season to begin plowing up our minds. Out with the old, in with the new. We have but one choice to make, will we cooperate?
I pray for each of you that you won’t stop fighting, you won’t stop running after God until you receive what is yours – A Confident Heart.
Excerpt From Day 6 – A Message from Renee
Yet Satan wants us to focus on our flaws and feelings of inadequacy, then exhaust our energy figuring out how to hide them. But we don’t have to go along with his schemes. Instead we can recognize his lies, refute his temptations with truth, and focus on God’s acceptance, security, and significance. Then we can thank God for His provision and His promises that remind us of who we are in Him.
I am accepted . . .
Ephesians 1:3–8 I have been chosen by God and adopted as His child.
Colossians 1:13–14 I have been redeemed and forgiven of all my sins.
Colossians 2:9–10 I am complete in Christ.
I am secure . . .
Romans 8:28 I am assured that God works for my good in all circumstances.
Romans 8:31–39 I am free from condemnation. I cannot be separated from God’s love.
Philippians 1:6 I am confident God will complete the good work He started in me.
I am significant . . .
Ephesians 2:10 I am God’s workmanship.
Ephesians 3:12 I may approach God with freedom and confidence.
