We all have a running inner dialogue. Sometimes it is not very nice. It’s like a peanut gallery. The peanut gallery says things like – you’re so weak – what is wrong with you? Why can’t you stop overeating or overspending or talking so much or why are you so shy or messy or disorganized?
Join me on this video as we discuss How to Fire the Peanut Gallery in Your Head!
For some – to quiet the inner dialogue — they turn to substances like alcohol, drugs, or pills. For others they turn to work or busyness on the calendar to stay distracted. It does not work because as soon as you are quiet – that inner dialogue starts back up.
The enemy does not rest! He wants to lie to us.
But in 1 Samuel 30 – verse 6 – when David was all alone and had absolutely no one – he did not listen to the peanut gallery. It says:
But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
But David STRENGTHENED.
But David strengthened HIMSELF.
But David strengthened himself IN THE LORD HIS GOD.
He grew strong. He did it for himself. He did it, through the Lord His God.
Are you discouraged today?
In what areas do you struggle with a peanut gallery, in your head?
Turn to God – all by yourself – and be strengthened.
God loves you so.
Walk with the King,
