I believe that from the very beginning, people were destined to be free from poverty. Until one day our original parents exercised wrongly their gift of free will.
Fast forward thousands of years thereafter, we are witnessing the horrible situation of the world we are in today.
Racism is resurrecting in the West. North Korea threatening a nuclear war. Drug war in the Philippines killing a grade 11 student. Stock markets getting more volatile. What else do you see in the news?
Some people despair but I choose to think with those who try to make this world a better place while alive. One effective method that works for me is through (positive) declarations.
Here are some declarations in my collection that have been very helpful to me in getting through each day. They’re especially helpful during rough days; they get you on track.
I like who God made me. He loves me, and I am special to Him. I have gifts and abilities that He has given me, and I am thankful for them. I also have weaknesses, but I trust God to show His strength in these areas. I have been made right with God through Jesus Christ. I can do nothing without Him, but I can do all things through Him. (Psalm 139:14; Romans 8:39,12:6; Jeremiah 1:5; 2 Corinthians 5:21,12:9; Philippians 4:13)
Here’s another one.
Know the truth and be set free (John 8:32) to live a life of abundance (John 10:10) Jesus died to give you because God loves you and want your joy to be complete (John 16:24)
They are life-changing. I got them, by the way, from the literature of Joyce Meyer. (Image above taken from bible.com app).
