4. Why should I lack faith to fulfill my calling knowing that God has allotted to me a measure of faith? (Rom. 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? (Ps. 27:1, Dan. 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 lack wisdom, when Christ gave wisdom to me from God and God gives wisdom to me generously when I ask for it? (1 Cor. 1:30, James 1:5)

8. Why should I accept defeat when the Bible says that God always leads me in triumph? (2 Cor. 2:14)

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

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

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

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

 15. Why should I be discontented when I, like Paul, can learn to be content in all my circumstances? (Phil. 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 Cor. 5:21)

17. Why should I have a persecution complex, knowing that nobody can be against me when God is for me? (Rom. 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 Cor. 14:33 & 2:12)

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