Thoughts begin to creep into your mind that, maybe I’m not good enough, or, maybe I am too old and the younger ones have it now. Whatever the thought is that enters into your mind, it is a lie from the devil and you should rebuke it in the Name of Jesus. We need to be real about all of this because it is real. Those thoughts are real, the actions are real. We cannot go around being something that we are not because of what others may think or of what we may think.
Being real is not going around revealing every little area of your life but it is being transparent and not phony. We don’t have to wear our feelings on our sleeves but be real in our thoughts of ourselves, being real with others, being real with who God called us to be. Being real is not painful in any way shape or form. Being real is putting it out there so you don’t have to carry the things put on you by yourself, getting others to pray with you and for you that bad thoughts go away, your health returns to normal, your finances are met. Whatever the instance may be if we are real with others they will be real with us.
This writing came out of me being real with you. Our ministry Ream Ministries International has branched out in a new direction for a season and obviously it is really getting the devil mad at us. Attacks are coming from all directions and some I actually pause on only to say get thee behind me Satan. Being real is helping that no one else stumbles on the same thing. Share what is happening and get others involved and actively praying with you that God will intervene and use the situation to reach out to someone else. Being real is going beyond you and thinking about others that they may have peace and hope in their lives.
When we are real with others it is amazing how things in your life seem to take a different direction. The enemy says you are too old (my thoughts under attack) and God telling you let others know and you don’t have to fight the battle by yourself. If you can get past your pride and allow others to know what is going on in your life you will see mighty intervention and God will move in ways you have never even thought of. The bible says that one can put a thousand to flight but two can put ten thousand to flight. It also says that where two or three are gathered He is in the midst.
So see you have a vast army when you are real and allow others into your life and let them share in your victory. Your victory over things in your life if you allow others in can also touch others because they may be holding back as well. Be real today and you will see what I mean. I struggle from time to time and just because I may be a minister, it does not mean that I am exempt from attacks. Satan is out to kill steal and destroy and he doesn’t care who, just that they do. There is power in the name of Jesus and with that power, we can overcome those thoughts and attacks and all it takes is that we be real.
God bless you and I will be praying for you and with you In the Name of Jesus.
