Show confidence that God has heard!

The Lord said to me, 
“You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.” 
- Jeremiah 1:12 (NIV)

Show confidence that God has heard your request and is performing His word, as Jeremiah 1:12 mentions. Let the peace of God keep you focused as you guard your thoughts.

Control your thoughts, even in the midst of trouble

I had faith in my God and His promises, but doubtful and fearful thoughts kept hammering away at my mind. I knew, however, that just because I had doubts that provoked me into fear and anxiety, it did not mean I had to give in to them. It is possible, even in the midst of trouble, to control one’s thoughts, as Philippians 4:8 verifies! So, I began to resist those negativities with God’s Word in order to get on, and stay on, the path of healing.
