- I’m not optimistic based on what I feel.
- I’m optimistic based on what God says.
Eight reasons I’m optimistic from Romans 8
1) My sins are forgiven and my eternity is secure.
Romans 8: 1-2
2) Jesus is at the right hand of God praying for me.
3) My future victory is greater than my present pain.
4) My mind is filled with the peace of God.
5) If God is for me, who can be against me?
Romans 8:31, 33
6) God’s Spirit helps me in my weakness.
7) God is working everything in my life for good.
8) Nothing can separate me from the love of God.
