The world is a scary place, and many are worried about their future, and the future, of their families. The Father wants us to focus on Him, and not the things of this world. When someone focuses on negative things, it is taking away their faith. What we give our energy to, is what we are calling into being, through our subconscious.
Has anyone ever feared something happening, all day, just for that very thing to happen? The more we focus on things, the more power we give them. The more emotions you put into your thoughts, the more power, those thoughts have over us.
I have learned a few tricks to changing thoughts. The first one is finding a positive song. The music coming out today is so negative, that I find myself changing the negative words into positive ones if I can not escape hearing the songs. When a negative thought creeps into my mind, I say the complete opposite. When I have a fear of my car breaking down, I thank the Father for providing my family with a new vehicle. When the fear comes that I won’t make enough for the bills of the week I rank the Lord out loud for providing all our needs.
Think positive things, and positive things will start to happen.
Habits, can be like giants, especially when it is a habit that is hard for someone to quit. When I quit smoking cigarettes, I realized that there are habits that some will never be able to quit. Not everyone escapes their giant. Some may think to themselves that my habit isn’t that bad. Anything that becomes so important, that you can not go to bed, or wake up, without indulging, can lead to a idol, or in this care habit/giant.
I’m not condemning anyone with any type of habits I’m just here to encourage everyone, that no matter how big the giant, habit, or circumstance. There is hope, and you can quit. If I could quit some of the habits I have had over 20 years then anyone can. Their is a way to quit as long as someone is willing to try the Father will meet you halfway.
The message is clear to me today, get your heart right. If there is anything holding someone back, they should eliminate the habit, or whatever it may be. Things are not going to get better as long as we are keeping that thing around, that is keeping us separated, from the Father. The enemy has developed a plan to separate each one of the Fathers children, away from Him. The truth is that He has given each of us the power, and authority to have the victory.
We have the authority, and most of us have just forgotten or gone to spiritual sleep. I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens me. Greater is He that is in me, that he that it in the world. God hasn’t given me the spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and of a sound mind.
You can do it, you can and will defeat this bad habit.
There is hope, even though the day is fading and the storm clouds are moving in. Don’t be discouraged, the Father is always one prayer away. The enemy is clever, and is not going out silently, so it’s important, for us, to be, prepared at every moment.
The moment we stop preparing, is usually when we are caught, in a bad situation. I have recently learned this lesson, the hard way. I think the time for being lukewarm is over, because time is short, and things are happening fast. We are not promised tomorrow, and although I’ve seen countless videos about, when the Lord will return. His word does say no one, knows when He will return. This means we should stay prepared, at all times.
I stay prepared, by trying to stay in prayer. The best way, I have found, to do this is beginning my day, in meditation, and prayer. Starting the day, the right way, with the Father. The best thing, to do, is leave the phone alone, until after devotion time. I have found that, this helps me. Does anyone else have any suggestions on spending time with the Lord?
