1 Samuel 30:6 And David was greatly distressed; for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.

Satan sends an attack in our minds, telling us we will never be this or that and telling us we will never have this or that. We must counter those attacks by preaching to ourselves.

We must open our mouths and declare what God says about us. We must tell ourselves…
“I am victorious.”
“I am strong.”
“God loves me.”

It’s very beneficial to find scriptures that correlate with our confession. Such as…
“God shall supply my needs.” -Philippians 4:19
“God takes care of me.” -1 Peter 5:7
“By His wounds, I am healed.” -Isaiah 53:5

Satan will try to make us think we look silly by talking to ourselves, but don’t listen to him. He knows our consistency with our confession will stop his attack and give us the victory. So, preach preacher!!!
