TAKE THE POSITIVE APPROACH
Everything the Scripture says about you and soul winning is the truth and there is NO REASON you should not be successful and effective in this ministry. Every possible objection you may raise has an answer and a solution in God. There is no hindrance that He cannot overcome. If you are willing, God will help you overcome every obstacle that may threaten or hinder you. Through your life and witness many will be turned to salvation and the Kingdom of God will be greatly enlarged.
POSTIVE ANTICIPATION ALWAYS PRECEDES PERSONAL ACCOMPLISHMENT.
"You reap what you sow." If you sow while harbouring negative thoughts of doubt and pessimism in your mind, you will never reap a positive, effective, and fruitful harvest.
So be confident that God is going to use you in a remarkable way to win other persons into His Kingdom.
REMEMBER THAT GOD IS WITH YOU!
He has commissioned you. He wants you to succeed. God is going to accomplish His purposes. and if you are willing, He will accomplish them through YOU.
The Holy Spirit of God is working within you now. He will guide you to the very people to whom God wants you to speak. He will put the right words in your mouth. He will empower those words with authority and make them powerfully effective. The Holy Spirit will bring all things to your remembrance at the right time and for the right occasion. He will give you the insight into the needs of the people to whom you witness. You will find yourself speaking words of wisdom that did not prepare or pre-meditate. It is the work of God that you will be involved in and if you are a willing vessel, he will flow through you to accomplish His purpose.
Remember that GOD is with you. You are not alone.
