Remember that I have told you in this world you would have trials and tribulations, but to be of good cheer because I have overcome the world. You must continually keep these truths in the forefront of your mind. Do not say that it is too difficult for you to believe. Truth is what I say, but you can sabotage what I say when you believe the enemy's lies.
Whenever you encounter a lie, you must be on the offensive and speak the truth. That is why I instructed My people to wear the scriptures on their head and post them on their doorposts. They were to be a constant reminder of the truth. You must do the same. You must meditate on what I am teaching you each day.
Never let your guard down. Your weapons for this battle are prayer and gratitude. This is not too difficult to do, but you have become careless and let your thoughts go down the road of worry, anxiety and negativity. Pray continually and whenever you see yourself going down the wrong path, stop and pray. Thank Me for the battles we have faced and won together. Keep your eyes on Me and keep an eternal perspective. The weight of glory to be revealed will be worth the trials that you have faced.
Do not be overcome with fear, anxiety and worry. No matter what you face, I will be with you. If you have sinned, My grace is greater. I will help you with whatever I ask you to do. Do not be afraid. Only believe, trust and obey.
Deuteronomy 11:18-21 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
18 Memorize these laws and think about them. Write down copies and tie them to your wrists and your foreheads to help you obey them. 19 Teach them to your children. Talk about them all the time—whether you’re at home or walking along the road or going to bed at night, or getting up in the morning. 20 Write them on the door frames of your homes and on your town gates. 21 Then you and your descendants will live a long time in the land that the Lord promised your ancestors. Your families will live there as long as the sky is above the earth.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Amplified Bible (AMP)
16 Rejoice always and delight in your faith; 17 be unceasing and persistent in prayer; 18 in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.
