Is the enemy of your heart playing with your head?
Hello Sweet Friends,
I decided to expound the next few days a little on the words spoken on Sunday for those of you in Montgomery, and even those who may have missed it. There is never enough time in an hour to share the details of my thoughts, and for those of you seeking to go deeper this is for you.
Yesterday, I spoke to the power of PRAISE and His Presence to changing us internally. And today, I encourage you to RENEW YOUR MIND!
I believe that the enemy of our hearts can take very little effort to keep us out of our destiny by simply playing with our heads. Perhaps it is why Jesus says....
Love me with your heart, soul, MIND and strength. Mark 12:30
Could the enemy have figured out from the timing of Deuteronomy 6 (Love me with your heart soul and strength) that it was pretty simple to play with our heads? Thus the need for Jesus to add....and your MIND too? It makes sense doesn't it?
Let's be honest.....the racing thoughts suffocate us some days. The comparing our bodies, our husbands, our homes, our children, our finances, our lifestyles robs our joy and adds to the never ending saga .....I will never be enough!
I don't think it is enough to just say I will be different and seek to be different, because He says we must...
Renew our MINDS!
Do not be conformed to this world, but be TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING OF YOUR MIND! Then you will be able to TEST and approve what God's will is- His good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
So how do we renew our minds?
We replace the lies with TRUTH!!!!
I don't believe you can stay FREE without the Word of God!
Jesus, said if you hold to my teachings you will know the TRUTH and the TRUTH will set you FREE! (John 8:32)
We need the TRUTH to replace the lies to FREE us! And by reading His teachings we know what has eternal significance.....
- Not the car you drive, but that you feed His sheep (John 21:17).
- Not the dirt of your life, because He sees the treasure (Matt 13:44).
- Not to fall to torment, but be thankful because when we are thankful the peace of the Lord comes that surpasses all understanding (Phil 4:6).
- Not to be conformed to this world and it's things, because the Kingdom is not only when you die, but here at hand (Matt 10:7).
Yes, you can taste heaven here on earth...... or He would have never told us to pray
thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Without the TRUTH, we fall pray to the lies the world convinces you like you aren't enough or what you are doing is.......there is MORE for those who dare to seek it!
And when you seek with your whole heart, I will be found! Jeremiah 29:13
I dare you also to try something new....... if you don't like the what your head is speaking choose to have a NEW THOUGHT! You have that authority!!!! Even better, seed your thoughts with His truth! Let Him speak to your longing heart and bring it to new life!!!!
Praise Him, Renew Your Mind.....we are breaking FREE!
In His Wings,
