ON MY MIND: You Are NOT Cracking Up

Does it seem like everything, including the kitchen sink, is being thrown at you?

If you find yourself under attack and wanting to go back to the old you just to “take care of stuff”, you need to remember something I just read online. (I think it’s from a website called, “God Updates”.) “If you are seeking God, with your whole heart, but distraction, lies or discouragement won’t shake off of you, you are likely being hit by the enemy. If you are pursuing clarity, but all you find is confusion, you are likely being hit by the enemy. If you are giving God your whole heart, but still feeling tired, worn and weary, you are likely being hit by the enemy.” As I continued to read, I was reminded of something that I already knew but had forgotten after being totally consumed…”the enemy’s only strategy is to make us believe he can undo what Jesus has already done. He diverts us and if we move with him, and take our eyes off of the truth, we lose God. BUT, if we stand firm and don’t give in, we move towards the goal of Christ Jesus. So, allow these words to sink into our mind, then into our heart and then down to our feet, so that we walk with assurance. Nothing – no way, no how – can shake us.” I said all of that to say this, DO NOT allow the old you to make an appearance because you won’t be able to reel that person back in. (Just telling you what I know.) Instead, remember this…”For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12) Have a blessed day!!
