“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV).
“But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3 NKJV). You cannot trust your body (“good to the eyes”) or your mind (“good to make one wise”).
“Among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind” (Ephesians 2:3 ESV).
“You are weak. You will be overpowered. You cannot stand any more. You are going to fall apart and lose everything.”
“God doesn’t love you. God has abandoned you. You are all on your own in this world. God has rejected you and turned His back on you.”
“You have no purpose. You are not accomplishing anything. You are drifting through life for no reason. You are confused.”
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad… For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are of sound mind it is for you”
(2 Corinthians 5:10, 13 NKJV, emphasis added). “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28 NKJV).
