The only thing we really have control over is our thoughts. Thoughts create feelings. Feelings create action. Action creates results. We must take our thoughts captive and cast down negative imaginations and every thing that would exalt itself above the power of our God.
2Corinthians 10:3-5 KJV For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ
Satan is God’s enemy. He loves to mock God and wants to steal your love and time from God. That old devil will try every way he can to deceive you and distract you by setting other things up in your thoughts to take priority over God.
Take a moment to ponder how often you expressed love for our Heavenly Father this past week. You had 168 hours, how much of it was invested in your relationship with our Heavenly Father?
Did you find yourself lost in life, feeling like there was just not enough time to do all the things you needed to get done? The idea that we are “too busy” is one of the greatest tools Our enemy has created to get inside our minds and manipulate us. I am guilty of falling into this trap, are you?
What might happen this week if you and I make a conscious effort to spend focused time with God?
Praying, reading His Word, worshiping Him during a walk in nature, helping someone, studying a scripture, sitting quietly and listening for His Spirit, dancing joyously through our home as we sing praises to His holy name.
There are so many ways to love God when we aren’t distracted by other thoughts and priorities.
