Sometimes, we have this tendency to think that things are just the way they are, that they can't, they won't, change.
We have a bad habit that we just CAN'T break.
We have this relationship that's going nowhere good that just CAN'T be restored.
We have this unfortunate circumstance in our life that just WON'T go away.
We have this negative internal thought pattern that just WON'T quiet down.
We tend to accept things to be just the way that they are, and doubt that we have the power, will-power, man-power, status, strength, serenity, etc. to overcome whatever it is that makes us discontent. But this kind of thinking is NOT in alignment with God's word.
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
