The 20 Cans of Success from God’s Word

Success comes in “a can” and failure in “a can’t.”  Place the following “20 Cans of Success” in a visible location so that you can read, meditate, and confess God’s Word daily. In the process, you will develop the power of positive believing.  I suggest you break the “cans” into fours for each workday.

  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 27:1Daniel 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 God always 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 1:30James 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)?
  10. Why 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 28:20Hebrews 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)?
