The Bible teaches the principle of replacement. “Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right … Think about all you can thank God for and be glad about” (Philippians 4:8 TLB).
In other words, don
’t think about all those weaknesses in your life. Focus on who God wants you to be and what God wants to do in your life. I don’t know a better antidote to low self-esteem (or to facing your hurts, habits, and hang-ups) than to read God’s Word every day — study it, memorize it, meditate on it, and apply it in your life.
“Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.”
-Proverbs 4:23 (Good News Translation)
