God's Words to You

Sometimes there's a big difference between what you say and what God says.

You say: “It is impossible.”

God says: “All things are possible.”

You say: “I am too tired.”
God says: “I will give you rest.”

You say: “Nobody really loves me.”
God says: “I love you.”

John 3:34: “For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure.”


You say: “I can’t go on.”

God says: “My grace is sufficient.”

2 Corinthians 12:9: “He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 

Psalm 91:15: “He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.”


You say: “I cannot figure things out.”

God says: “I will direct your steps.”

You say: “I can’t do it.”
God says: “You can do all things.”

You say: “I am not able.”
God says: “I am able.”

2 Corinthians 9:8: “God is able to  make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”


You say: “It’s not worth it.”
God says: “It will be worth it.”

Romans 8:28: “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”


You say: “I can’t forgive myself.”

Romans 8:1: “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”


You say: “I cannot manage.”
God says: “I will supply all your needs.”

Philippians 4:19: “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” You say: “I am afraid.” God says: “I have not given you a spirit of fear.”

2 Timothy 1:7: “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”


You say: “I am always worried and frustrated.”
God says: “Cast all your cares on Me.”

1 Peter 5:7: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (NIV).


You say: “I’m not smart enough.”
God says: “I will give you wisdom.”
