Isaiah 45:22 "Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other." _
Just before my surgery last week I had battled fearful thoughts about how things may turn out. Now I know enough to know that those thoughts are not my own, and they're certainly not from my Heavenly Father. He created me to be an overcomer and meditating on defeating thoughts are definitely not from Him.
When we battle defeating thoughts it's from the enemy. His will is for you to be taken down in fear, depression, anxiety, doubt, rejection, etc. When we allow ourselves to dwell on this "mental food" we come up starving, with no energy to push through the situation. Oftentimes, we may sit in this "stink" for a while and it could rob us of hours, days, weeks, and even years. It can rob us of relationships, dreams, etc. It becomes hard for us to call out to Him because we feel too weak, too defeated.
Beloved, I strongly encourage you in this truth: don't wait on God to come to you. You must turn your thoughts and your eyes (the visuals in your head) AWAY from the idols of the spirits of fear, depression, stress, anxiety, rejection, etc. and look to Him and be saved; just as this verse implores us to do. It starts with you AND He has built you to be able to do it and do it successfully. Speak life, the hope and faith over you and your situation and not the death, the will and destruction of the enemy for you. You have been given power over the enemy. Use it!
Father, strengthen Your people in their inner man. Cause them to rise up and face, talk back to the enemy and tell the enemy what You will do, what Your will is for Your children and warriors for You are always for us, and never against us! Help us to not grow weary, but stand firm to the end that we may be saved and delivered from enemy's will, schemes. #godsword #spiritualjourney #believer #overcomer #popsoflife #redeemed #warriorlife #warrior #godswordistruth
