If I may share just for a moment, I believe that most people are giving the enemy way too much credit for the things that are going on in their lives. Everyone wants God to intervene in their lives but they do not hesitate to tell others of how bad things are going. Giving this kind of credit only prolongs what God is going to do anyway. Satan has no idea what we are thinking and he will never know unless we voice what is on our mind. Satan can tempt us, he can make things visible to us that can turn distract us, but he has no idea of our thoughts and he never will.
I can think of many times in my life that everything was going totally wrong and many times I just wanted to give up, but there was this small voice inside of me that kept on saying press in, keep going. I know that voice and I know that it is not the voice of the evil one, it is the voice of God. Even though I am a Christian and I have surrendered my entire life to God, I still have trials. I will always have trials, you will always have trials no one is exempt. The one thing that I can tell you is what the bible says, 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)
Once you have spoken what is on your mind then it is too late, you can’t take it back, you can’t suck it back into your mouth like it never happened. This is not a cartoon, this is for very real life and we need to learn how to stand up for ourselves and stop giving the devil free run in our lives. I know it is very hard to do because things just keep going on and most situations don’t change overnight but I really believe with all of my heart when you surrender your life, your entire life over to Christ things begin to change. When you begin to take your thoughts captive and if you know that they are not from God and you say in the Name of Jesus I am not going there, God hears that and He removes that thought from your mind.
I have had similar things happen and deep down inside I know that I shouldn’t do it, or I know that it is not right, I speak in the Name of Jesus and it goes away. I like to call it the ten second rule. You have ten seconds from the time you think it or do it to make a decision. Is this from God or not? Should I do this or say this or not? In that ten seconds you can either give glory to God or you can destroy what He has put inside of you. Try it and you will understand what I mean. The first time I did tried it I thought it was the most unnatural thing I had ever done, but it worked. Somehow some way it worked! I know amazing right?
Just think God actually hears what you are thinking and turns things around in your life, what a concept. God has only one thing for you and that is to love you in ways you can never think of, in fact he loves you so much that he is willing to take all of the unnatural things out of your life and make them obedient to himself. God wants you to have so much more than you can even dream of. Start by not giving any more credit to the evil one and begin to give God all of the glory and the honor and you will see the change.
The ultimate sacrifice for you happened two thousand years ago when Jesus Christ gave his life on the cross just for you and I. You realize that he could have called ten thousand angels to rescue him but his love for you was far more important than his own life. He died that your sins would be forgiven and this very day he stands as a mediator between you and his Father. God says you are guilty, but Jesus says yes they are but I died in their place so they could be forgiven and set free. So your heavenly attorney is Jesus Christ and when you understand how much God loves him then you will understand how much he loves you.
I will be praying for all of you and interceding on your behalf that God will intervene in your life and change you forever. That he will heal you, set you free and return all that the enemy has taken from you. This is your day and today is your day. Say yes to Jesus.
