Are defeated thoughts killing your divine dreams? 5 faith scriptures to replace stinking thinking 

Article by Jessica Hall // EEW Magazine Spiritual

Share I'm too old. It's too late. Good things always skip over me. I don't have enough of what I need to get anything done. Sound familiar?

Have you allowed negative thoughts just like these to pervade your mind, cloud your faith and cause you to doubt if your divine dreams will ever come true?

It's not easy to believe God for the best when you have faced the worst possible circumstances many times in your life. And yet, His word challenges you to keep on hoping, trusting and declaring that there are many good things to come, despite what it looks like today.

If you're having trouble kicking defeated thoughts to the curb, here are 5 faith scriptures to meditate on so you can stop the stinking thinking and begin your journey toward victorious living.

#1 Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)- “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Even when you don't see a way, believe God has already made the way. You must keep the faith! Remember that all things work together for the good of the one who loves the Lord and is called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).

#2 Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)- “But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

You can’t hope to see your divine dreams fulfilled while speaking curses over your life. God requires that you believe. Today, stop doubting the One who freely delivers every good and perfect gift. Know that God's will will be made manifest as you trust Him.

#3 James 1:6-8 (ESV)- “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

When you ask the Lord for anything, whether it be wisdom, strength, joy, peace, resources or even greater clarity for your vision, trust that He is willing, and more than able. Don't let the wind of doubt knock you down as you wait. Ensure that your faith for the fulfillment of every need and divine dream is built upon the Solid Rock, and His name is Jesus!

#4 Mark 11:24 (NIV)- “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Pray in confidence. Even if it takes longer than you hoped it would, don't waver. When you ask your Father for great things in faith, as the word says, BELIEVE that you will receive it, and you'll have that thing according to His will.

#5 Psalm 37:4-5 (ESV)- “Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your ways to him, and he will act.”

Last and certainly not least, don't just dream big without sacrificing big. That means live your life in such a way that you submit your desires to the Lord. Trade in your wants for His. When you do that, what you crave and how you behave will align with God's desire and design. You'll be in synch with the Father. There is no other way to ensure your divine purpose will be fulfilled.

 

Have faith for your divine dreams and say no to negative thinking. Furthermore, don't just speak positive confessions over your vision. Be sure everything you say is rooted in the word of God. Let His will be your will.

No more, no less.

And keep on dreaming. Expect the best, for the best is yet to come!
