The truth is, God is working in my life at all times. When I cannot see evidence of it in front of me, I can be assured that He is indeed exerting His strength and faculties behind the scenes, to bring about His good plan for my life. This is because of the greatness of His love, grace, and mercy, and not because I merited His working by works. This is the truth that the Bible teaches – He has not left me to sort everything out on my own. Thoughts and feelings of impatience and frustration are lies which the enemy lies to us. We do not have to accept those lies. We can reject the lies and believe the truth instead.
This is how I trained my heart and mind to receive and believe the truth:
“I am feeling __ frustrated __, but it is only a feeling brought on by my past. It is not a true reflection of my current reality. My reality is determined by the word of God, and this is what it says: ___ repeat Scripture ___.”
The word of God is powerful, living and active, the weapon of our warfare which is effective against all the lies of the enemy and mighty to tear down strongholds (2 Cor 10:4).
