Who destroyed your zeal to win? You, because you said, you couldn’t get anything done so it affected the drive in you to keep fighting for what you want.
Words! If you think and speak failure, you will go down to that level. That is why the Bible says in Proverbs 21:23, "Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles."
Your own words can be as a poison to your system. Your words are sometimes deadly. When you say, “I don’t believe I will ever get over this,” you are taking in poison. If you don’t break the power of that confession, your progress can easily be put on hold. This principle works for both positive and negative confessions. The Bible says:
"Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. Job 22:28"
In the name of Jesus, I am a believer. I render ineffective every negative word I have spoken, every negative thing I have thought, every word and thought that has been contrary to the truth of God's Word. From this moment forward, I will acknowledge only the good things that are in me in Christ Jesus. I am saying it now: out of the good treasure of my heart, only good things will come to pass in Jesus name.
