My Word Against His


word-1 copy

My word says I am defeated, a loser.

His Word says:
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Romans 8:37

My word says it's impossible.

His Word says:
“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

My word says I am alone.

His Word says:
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8

My word says I am not important.

His Word says:
“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” 1 John 4:10

My word has a lot to say about me...mostly negative. Sometimes my word snuffs the life right out of me. Each syllable reminding me of mistakes, each a drop of remorse or guilt...or worse.

Why then should I believe my word? After all...it's my word against His.

“By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:4

Whose word do you believe?
