choose the fountain

"To understand the force of any Scripture, a good plan is to put it into opposite words.  For example:

'Now may the devil of discouragement fill you with all misery and disturbance in doubting, so that you may abound in distress, through the mighty working of the devil of discouragement.'

Contrast that with the glorious truth of what Paul really wrote in Romans 15:13: 'Now the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.'

Doesn't that make this hope of ours an overflowing fountain?"

~Amy Carmichael

Every day, every moment, we have the choice to claim God's Word for our lives.  Don't let the world turn your eyes from the Truth and the power that comes with it through the Holy Spirit!  Go for the overflowing fountain!
