Without realizing, this world has molded us to ‘believe in the works of the Devil’ more than God’s power. For example, when we are facing negative facts, in an instant our minds become frantic, imagining the next negative things to happen. Our emotions keep moving towards the negative. It happens because without knowing, we are setting our mind on the things of the Devil. We become more believing that bad things will truly happen to us.
However, Holy Spirit said in my heart: “Devil, Sin, and Death have been defeated by Jesus. But strangely, believers keep on suffering, crying and shedding tears in their everyday life. Supposedly, Devil, Sin and Death are the ones who are crying and suffering. Our supposed portion is to BELIEVE WHOLEHEARTEDLY IN THE PERSON OF CHRIST, IN GOD’S PLAN AND HIS ABUNDANT POWER TO REALIZE IT IN OUR LIVES. Our part is to rejoice and give shouts of praise in celebration every day!”
For so long, our logic has been turned ‘upside down’. We ‘magnify’ the Devil’s works so much and feel terrorized by it. We easily become anxious and fearful. This is not normal at all! For our God is far more powerful and sovereign, and He is willing to make His plans a reality in our lives!
Holy Spirit wants me to be renewed in my mind completely; transformed from human logic into divine logic. It’s time for me to end my ‘faith’ in the Devil, and at the same time, believe that all its plans will totally fail! For the Devil is powerless! Why should we be made anxious by something that has been subdued by Christ?
In essence, whatever happens, we must BELIEVE more in CHRIST and His plan! That’s the only way we could position ourselves to live our everyday life in stillness, peace, and everlasting joy!
These days, Holy Spirit is emphasizing to me about learning to JUST BELIEVE in Him and His Word. All in all, we must become like a child who EASILY BELIEVES. It’s the only way we could enjoy the Kingdom of Heaven on the face of this earth. Everything can be shaken, but we can stay still because we BELIEVE in HIM!
Isaiah 30:15 (NASB) For thus the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, has said, “In repentance and rest you will be saved, in quietness and trust is your strength.”
Isaiah 30:18 (NASB) Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him.
If for so long we’ve allowed this world, evil spirits, and all kinds of negative incidents to keep affecting and molding our personality to the negative, it’s time for us to turn the tables! Keep pressing into His presence, receive His word, experience the work of His Spirit, and condition all those divine influences to affect and mold our life until our everyday life changes! We start to manifest a victorious spirit, demonstrating God’s sovereign love and power to everyone who interacts with us!
Our life is the temple of God – make sure that it is always filled with the reality of His glory! #ILoveGod
