I say… But God says

When discouragement and hopelessness find us, we often remain stuck in the lies we tell ourselves. For every word of negative self-talk we utter, God is there with a word of truth and encouragement.

I say…

I am all alone.

But God says…

Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. Hebrews 13:5

I am with you always, to the very end of the ageMatthew 28:20

I say…

I have no more hope.

But God says…

Those who hope in me will not be disappointed. Isaiah 49:23

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10

I say…

I have no value.

But God says… 

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Matthew 6:26

I say…

I have no more strength.

But God says…

I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9

I say…

I am so tired.

But God says…

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

I say…

I am not enough.

But God says…

I have summoned you by name; you are mine. Isaiah 43:1

You are in me and I am in youJohn 14:20b

I say…

I must have done something to deserve this.

But God says…

As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth.  His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.   John 9: 1-3

I say…

I am afraid.

But God says…

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

I say…

I can’t see God in this.

But God says…

God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Number 23:19
