There is power in the Word of God. Proverbs 18:21 tells us that the words that we speak can bring life or death. We can build up or tear down. We can encourage or discourage.
Rather than declaring your problems let’s declare God’s word.
Take some time to mediate on the following scriptures and declare them over your life and your situation. And the next time the devil tries to make you feel like there is no hope, afraid, etc. declare God’s word!

This is an example of the power of focus! They have discovered what they are good at and they stick with it.
If we aren’t careful we can try to do too many things and end up accomplishing very little. If you are a...
