Good Morning my friends,
Have you ever had a weed in your flower bed or yard that you pulled out or chopped down and thought it was gone-only to have spring back up again in a matter of days? Their roots were still alive and might even have spread..
Sinful thoughts are similar to those weeds. When we come to Christ, He begins to change our thinking and new thoughts begin to take root in our minds. Thoughts about God’s love for us and His will for our life. But those old sinful thoughts haven’t been completely killed. They sometimes suddenly spring up to the surface and can reek havoc in our lives. When this happens, Satan will try to deceive us into thinking that you’re not a new creation in Jesus and you have failed Him.
Don’t be surprised when old ways of thinking crop up, just don’t let them linger. When they come, immediately turn to God and ask Him to help you get rid of them. It’s just like pulling weeds. Most of all, let the Word of God fill you and renew your mind every day. With you minds on Christ, Satan has little room to maneuver.
“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.” (Colossians 3:16)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU!!! Seek God’s help in clearing the weeds from your life…
I pray that YOU have a GREAT day. Blessings & much love…. D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
