Spiritual Pep Talk

Given April 3, 2005

Being a former athlete and coach, I've been involved in many a pep talk. They're designed to, well... pep you up, and get you ready for the game. A good coach can really inspire you to go out there, do your best, and be confident you can defeat your opponent. Right?

I've discovered I can do the same thing to myself as I get ready to face each day. I give myself a spiritual pep talk from the Word of God as soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning! And, sometimes during the day as well. It goes something like this:

  • I am a child of God. 1 John 3: 2
  • I’m an heir of God and joint heir with Christ. Romans 8: 16-17
  • He has made me a king and a priest. Revelation. 5:10
  • I look like God. Genesis 1:26
  • The Spirit of God dwells in me. 1 Corinthians 3: 16
  • I am more than a conqueror through Him who loved me. Romans 8: 37
  • He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4: 4
  • I’m the head and not the tail; above only, and not be beneath. Deuteronomy 28: 13
  • By His stripes I am healed. Isaiah 53: 5
  • I am His workmanship. Ephesians 2: 10
  • I have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2: 16
  • Behold, I have authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means harm me. Luke 10: 19
  • I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4;13
  • My God shall supply all my need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philipians 4:19
  • The joy of the Lord is my strength. Nehemiah 8:10
By the time I get downstairs, I'm fired up and ready to meet whatever the day brings. Memorize some of these verses or find your own and try it yourself. You'll "scripture" yourself happy, confident, and powerful!

Re: Luke 10:19 I like all these Biblical clues to our identity.

Re:Luke 10:19 I love a cup of hot tea. The other morning, I was half asleep when I poured the scalding water into the cup - and all over my hand. It hurt. And yet I put it under cold water, and there has not been a sign of burn.

Maybe you have an answer as to why this will happen sometimes, like a miracle, and other times you do manage to hurt yourself. One of God's mysteries I guess.
