Tell Yourself the Truth!
The most important conversations we have every day are not those we have with other people but those we have with ourselves! Your spirit talks to your soul, and your soul—which involves your mind, will, and emotions—speaks back to your spirit. When your spirit is in communion with God, it speaks truth to your soul, but your soul usually responds with resistance, unbiblical ideas, or discouragement. David gives testimony to this inward dialogue: “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance” (Psalm 42:5).
