Befriend Yourself | Sunday | February 3


Being confident of this, that he who began this good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. –Philippians 1:6 NIV

Many people think that Satan is their worst enemy. However, we’re often our own worst enemy. When we reject and dislike ourselves for whatever reason(s), it makes it difficult to accept and love others. What’s the cure? You need to befriend yourself in a healthy way. Let go of your inner critic and reprogram your mind to think favorably toward yourself.

When you change the dialogue of your thought life from critical to constructive, you build yourself up rather than tear yourself down. Put an end to negative thinking and unsupportive chatter. From A to Z think, speak, respond, and be:

Be Amazing. Befriend yourself. Be Changed. Be Daring. Be Encouraging. Be Faithful. Be Genuine. Be Honest. Be Involved. Be Joyful. Be Kindhearted. Be Lovable. Be Mindful. Be Nice. Be Optimistic. Be Polite. Be Quiet. Be Renewed. Be Sincere. Be Teachable. Be Unique. Be Victorious. Be Wise. Be eXceptional. Be Yielding. Be Zealous in all you do.

Resolve to become all that God destined you to be. Let God’s Holy Spirit transform you into a new person, which starts within your thoughts. From the inside out, and from glory to glory, be reshaped, refashioned, and renewed into the image of Christ.

Prayer Focus

Pray that the Holy Spirit would renew your mind so you will think and become the person God desires.

Ask God to make known to you who He would have you encourage and build up through powerful, positive, life-affirming words.
