In the past few weeks God has been teaching me to stop eating what the devil is dishing out.
Because the devil has a lot of crazy stuff he would like you and me to believe. And I was just there eating what ever he was dishing out which caused fear, anxiety, and hopelessness in me. I would cry out to God to help me in the midst of the attack because it was intense but God began to show me that I was not filtering the thoughts I was getting.
Our filter is the Word of God and that’s how we need to be measuring up everything that comes our way.
So He showed me that I need to reject the lies instead of entertaining them. And that’s what we tend to do right? Instead of taking the lies to God immediately we start thinking about what ifs, and project possible outcomes that are totally not according to God’s will for us. We let the fear shut us down.
But if we are going to hold on to the promises God has for us we need to stop doing this. We need to stop eating everything the devil is dishing out.
IT’S ALL LIES…
IT’S ALL LIES…
Resist and reject all of it. It’s not going to be easy I understand but God is with you and He will help you as you cry out to Him. The thoughts will come but they don’t have to pitch their tents in your mind. Cast them out with the authority Jesus has given you.
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV
So as I come to the end of this post I want to encourage you with one more scripture,
“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”
Philippians 4:8 NLT
Change what you think about. Stop thinking about the negative things the devil keeps trying to remind you about but instead think on the things God is doing in your life, the words He has spoken to you, on His beauty, on His grace, on the amazing things He has in store for you, His promises and so much more.
With that I have come to the end of the post.
Bless you friends and have a great weekend!
This reminds me to think about what I think about. Indeed, our thoughts guide our lives.
Our thoughts are so powerful and will tilt the course of our lives good or bad.
