New You - Thinking - Old You

What does your inner talk tell you? How do you view yourself? Do you tell yourself you are a son of God, righteous, holy, justified, redeemed, and blameless?

Is your talk – loser; stupid; ugly; dumb; I can’t do anything right; it is my fault; I am the one to blame; guilty; unlovable; unimportant; trapped; I can never change?

Romans 12: 2
- What is your inner talk?

1Peter 5:8 and 9

He was trained and prepared. He did not get cold cocked.

Jesus was not surprised; he was prepared. He visualized what would happen; he memorized the Scripture; he asked for help and quoted the Word.
