James 4:7 KJV
“........Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”
Fear is one of the greatest weapons of our enemy the devil. Once he can get his negative thoughts into you, he has planted the seed for speedy affliction.
Our first reaction at anything is often prompted by what is seen and heard. But you must understand that what you see or hear in the natural is not the final word on any matter. Who has the final word? God does! Because all power begins and ends in Him.
Do you know how much power there is in suggestion? This is one of the enemies’ favourite sneak tactics. He usually does that by either whispering his poison direct to you or using people who are either close to you or who have influence over you.
Someone around you can just throw out a suggestion and before you know it, you give it a thought. The next thing you know is that the thought is now in your head, going round and round. If you hold that thought long enough, it will eventually manifest itself as a reality.
In Matthew 6:25, Jesus said to the disciples, “Take no thought…”
Why did Jesus say that? Because there are all kinds of thoughts out there; a lot of them coming from unbelief, fear or anxiety. Jesus said essentially, “Don’t take the thought.” This literally means to resist the thought and insist on your own positive thought.
Imagine going into a restaurant and they serve you bad food, would you just eat it? I wouldn’t think so. Why then would you accept any thought or suggestion from the devil that comes our way and allow it inside our heads only to start battling the thought? God gave you the choice to say “Yes” or “No” to ANYTHING on earth, including Himself.
You have the choice to either resist or accept suggestive thoughts of sickness, poverty, sin, frustration or death. The most amazing fact is that God will respect your choice!
Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore CHOOSE LIFE, that both thou and thy seed may live:
God counsels you to chose life. He counsels you to resist the wrong thoughts and chose health, peace, eternal life, purity, prosperity and goodness above all the negatives.
Today, exercise your will IN Christ and resist every wrong suggestions or insinuations from both the enemy and well meaning but wrong loved ones plus friends.
I encourage you to chose life. DO LIFE!
I am an expression of the Divine!
