I have been just sick (in my head) the past few weeks and at home alone with just my thoughts. Prime playing ground for satan and his minions to come in and start talking smack…ABOUT EVERYTHING. I am listening to words whispered in my ear saying, “Who do you think you are? You aren’t good enough to even be sitting here. What is your purpose anyway? You can’t even remember to do the simple things. You are no good to anyone. Why aren’t you writing? Or reading? Because you are WEAK.”
Terrible, right?!?!? MY GOD!! Sick, sick, SICK. The battle begins in my mind and I am on a course for self-destruction if I don’t start looking to His word for HEALING, in my body and my mind.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 – The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 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.
Every thought, even ones I don’t even realize I am having, need to be taken captive and given to Jesus. Deceiver get up under MY FEET! You have no place here.
Jeremiah 1:19 – “They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
God is with me and He will see me through. I am going to give THANKS today! THANK YOU LORD! God knows what I need and when I need it and I was moving pretty fast so maybe it was time for me to stand still.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 – But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
