And to be renewed in the spirit of your minds.

Ephesians 4:23

Have you ever faced a situation in which you felt inadequate? It could be an upcoming test in an area you are completely unfamiliar with? Or perhaps you have a work project that you can’t seem to wrap your mind around. In these situations, most of us cave into the thinking that we will fail or that our efforts will be fruitless in the end.

It’s in these times we must change our mindset about the situation. Instead of thinking about how hard the test is, we can instead focus on asking the Lord to enlarge our understanding and begin to study with the hope that we will accomplish the task. Instead of allowing the work project to overwhelm us, we can turn to God, Who knows everything, and ask for wisdom and insight to resolve the issue.

Many times we fall into the negative mindset because we feel that we aren’t smart or savvy enough to figure things out. However, as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, we are given grace to overcome our weaknesses if we turn to the Lord. He allows us to experience the places of difficulty so we can know Him and His power to help us in our time of need.

This doesn’t mean that we sit back and do nothing. We have to do our part, which will mean opening the book and reading it for a test or assignment. We will have to study the work project more thoroughly and do our research. We will have to resist the temptation to be paralyzed by fear and instead push ourselves past the mental roadblocks of negativity.


Dear Lord, I need Your grace to overcome my weakness in this area. Help me to have the mind of Christ to push past negative thoughts and to embrace your peace onto accomplishments.

In His Service,
