Thoughts to Give Strength Before My Surgery

Today is the day for my back surgery. As I thought about what to write for today, I wondered what do I need today? I figured what I need is some positive thoughts from God's word.  Here are twenty promise I came up with to hold on today and through all situations.

1 Why should I say I can't when the Bible says I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength (Philippians 4:13)?

2 Why should I lack when I know that God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus(Philippians 4:19)?

3 Why should I fear when the Bible says God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7)?

4 Why should I lack faith to fulfill my calling, knowing that God has allotted to me a measure of faith (Romans 12:3)?

5 Why should I be weak when the Bible says that the Lord is the strength of my life and that I will display strength and take action because I know God (Psalm 27:1; Daniel 11:32)?

6 Why should I allow Satan supremacy over my life when He that  is in me is greater than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4)?

7 Why should I accept defeat when the Bible says that Godalways leads me in triumph (2 Corinthians 2:14)?

8 Why should I lack wisdom when Christ became wisdom to me from God and God gives wisdom to me generously when I ask Him for it (1 Corinthians 1:30; James 1:5)?

9 Why should I be depressed when I can recall to mind God's lovingkindness, compassion and faithfulness, and have hope (Lamentations 3:21-23)?

10Why should I worry and fret when I can cast all my anxiety on Christ who cares for me (1 Peter 5:7)?

11 Why should I ever be in bondage knowing that there is liberty where the Spirit of the Lord is (2 Corinthians 3:17)?

12 Why should I feel condemned when the Bible says I am not condemned because I am in Christ (Romans 8:1)?

13 Why should I feel alone when Jesus said He is with me always  and He will never leave me nor forsake me (Matthew 28:20;  Hebrews 13:5)?

14 Why should I feel accursed or that I am the victim of bad luck when the Bible says that Christ redeemed me from the curse of the law that I might receive His Spirit (Galatians 3:13, 14)?

15 Why should I be discontented when I, like Paul, can learn to be content in all my circumstances (Philippians 4:11)?

16 Why should I feel worthless when Christ became sin on my behalf that I might become the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21)?

17 Why should I have a persecution complex knowing that nobody  can be against me when God is for me (Romans 8:31)?

18 Why should I be confused when God is the author of peace and  He gives me knowledge through his indwelling Spirit (1    Corinthians 14:33; 2:12)?

  19 Why should I feel like a failure when I am a conqueror in all    things through Christ (Romans 8:37)?

  20 Why should I let the pressures of life bother me when I can     take courage knowing that Jesus has overcome the world and     its tribulations (John 16:33)?

Dear Lord we thank You for Your word and the encouragement it can be to us. In Jesus' name, Amen.
