I Say vs. What God Says

We discussed this in my branch a few weeks back. The next time you're tempted to say any of the things below, remember what God has already said to you.

I say, "It’s impossible.”

God says, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” (Luke 18:27) (See Gen 18:14)

I say, “I’m too tired.”

God says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…” (Matt. 11:28-30) (See Jer 6:16; Hebrews 4:1)

I say, “Nobody really loves me.”

God says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son…” (John 3:16)

I say, “I can’t go on.”

God says, “…My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness…” (2 Cor. 12:19) (See Exodus 4:10-15, Joshua 1:9, Isaiah 43:2; Jer 1:6-9; 1 Cor. 10:13; Hebrews 4:16)

I say, “I can’t figure things out.”

God says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

I say, “I can’t do it.”

God says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthenth me” (Phil. 4:13)

I say, “I’m not able.”

God says, “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.” (2 Cor. 9:8)

I say, “It’s not worth it.”

God says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

I say, “I can’t forgive.”

God says, “If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.” (Psalms 130:3-4) (See Matt 6:14-1518:23-35; James 2:13; Eph. 4:32)

I say, “I can’t manage.”

God says, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Phil 4:19) (See Ps. 23; 84:11; Isaiah 40:31; 2 Cor 4:7-10; 9:8; 1 Thes 5:24)

I say, “I’m afraid.”

God says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Tim 1:17) (See Luke 1:74-75; Acts 20:24; Romans 8:15; 1 John 4:18)

I say, "I'm always worried and frustrated."

God says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)

I say, “I’m not smart enough.”

God says, But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” (1 Cor 1:30) (See 1 Chron. 22:1-2; Proverbs 2:3-6; 8:5; James 1:5)

I say, “I feel all alone.”

God says, “…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:15) (See Deut. 31:6-8)

Remember that “… in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37).
