When you are experiencing increased spiritual warfare the one piece of advice I can give people is to not hold on to the thoughts the enemy wants you to latch onto. Those beliefs/ideas are often negative, lacking hope and faith, and tainted in their perspective. The enemy wants to use an idea as a Trojan horse into your emotions. Once they are in, they seek to bring you down into the depths of despair like an avalanche. By accepting that one lie about God, yourself, or that situation, you allow the enemy to create a storm within you that could have very well been avoided. 50 percent of the battles you face can be halted before they stopped by analyzing what thoughts are running through your head and asking yourself this simple question: Is this the belief that God wants me to accept or what the enemy of my soul wants? Oftentimes we think that the doubt and despair we are feeling is natural but when the curtain is pulled back, one finds a sinister force behind a simple thought. You are in a spiritual war. To be blinded to that and not accept it is to be bullied and thrashed around without knowing you're in battle. Imagine a person who refuses to recognize they are on a battlefield yet their feet stand in one. The chances of victory are slim. What would the enemy feel is most effective against someone who doesn't know they are in the midst of war? They would not reveal themselves outright but subtly move the person along to the edge of a cliff till they fall off. Why awaken them when they can move the puppet strings along without their consent? This is what they fear in every area of life. If you awaken to the goodness of God, to the battle between the deep state and patriots, to the spiritual struggle. You become infinitely more of a threat to them. You are Neo in a world of sleepers.
Wow Pepe, Another nailed it. I was sitting here asking God to center me and not doing it very well. This morning I was commited to say I TRUST GOD NO MATTER WHAT. Then the demons of thought come. My mind can run amok. To much negative news. To much family drama. I actually could feel my soul start to shake. Then you posted. Thank you. I know, I truly know, that we have already won. I have given my family to God and know that he's got them. I do TRUST GOD.
Thank you, we have likely all had our days of weakness and fallen into despair over events and the longer this drags on. I'm always reminded that we were chosen for this for some reason, and I believe it was because God knew we would stick with it regardless by faith not by sight.
Outstanding Sir! 👏 We control what we think and what we say. Choose wisely ✝️🌹🇺🇸❤️ In Him we live and move and have our being. ✝️
Great topic, Pepe. ♾️🤍♾️
We all have those pesky voices bouncing around! Being aware of them and what they are saying is so important in this battle of GOoD vs evil. Thank you for the guidance and reminder.
Read this awhile ago and keep it in my notes on my phone: “God’s Voice… Leads me, Reassures me, Enlightens me, Encourages me, Comforts me, and Calms me. If the voices you hear don’t sound like this, they are not from GOD.”
ML to you, fren.
You always give me the encouragement I need just at the time I need it! 🙏 That is God. Thank you.
Thank you Pepe ✨❤️
Amen. Perfect timing as always Pepe. 🙏🏻❤️🐸
Yes… it’s so hard fighting this spiritual war; one has to know God is with us in this fight… we just have to believe in him and pray!
God Bless you & yours
Full armor of God
Two ways to look at the world, man's view or God's view.
I chose Jesus!
I don't know how many times I've had to rest in Psalm 37 over the last couple years, but especially this week, "Do not fret, it only causes harm". I can easily get frustrated over "when is somebody going to DO something!!" But faith in Christ means we're going to be confused sometimes. I can't help but think how the cornerstone of our faith started with "Good Friday" which at the moment felt like anything but "good", and then it was followed by "What the Heck Happened Saturday". How little was stated about that day. We're not immune from wondering what's going on. But, Sunday was next...
Awesome read! Not to long and meaningful! Thank you!
