Fighting Negative Thoughts

I know the Lord is working in my life at the moment because Satan has been doing everything possible to get me down.

I have been fighting negative thoughts and the enemy has been using every insecurity, fear and past failure to get the best of me.

I have to admit that on my than one occasion I have wallowed in my pit of insecurity and self-pity and allowed the enemy to get the best of me.

Even Jesus was tempted by Satan

The enemy tempted Jesus on many occasions. After one such temptation Jesus said “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'”   {Matthew 4:10, NIV}

What a great reminder for us. When facing spiritual warfare we can follow in Jesus footsteps and say “Away from me, Satan.”

I find it beneficial when I begin praying or quoting Bible scripture.

How do you combat the negative thoughts?
