There has been countless days when I’ve dived into myself and start a bout on the seemingly wrong things that have surfaced in my life. Or perhaps, it’s a long thought on the various ‘disappointments’ I’ve had to run through in recent years. It takes an immense amount of encouragement to grab a hold of myself and pull my thoughts out of such captivity. However, it was never conquered without believing and applying the Word of God to my life.
I am here to remind us to today; we are here for God’s purpose and even though life can take us on an unknown, sometimes disappointing journey, God is saying “Hold-fast because your perseverance will develop your character in Him”.
The bottom line is:
- Remain in Him – daily seek His face in prayer, praise and worship. Deliberately plan and spend that precious time with Him.
- Hide His Words in Your heart and reject the enemy’s lies. Jesus was tempted by the devil and on all occasions, our Lord refuted with the Word of God.
- Think Positively: As stated in 2 Corinthians 10:5 –
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.
If the thought is contrary to the Word of God, it must be taken captive and subjected to obey Christ.
Have a blessed and productive week.
