EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
A seed, a single seed. How quickly it can grow if we don’t know how to tend the garden of our mind. The enemy knows well which seeds to plant- And he knows where and when to plant them. Today I watered a seed, knowing it wasn’t of the Lord. I traded in the fruits of the Spirit for weeds. I let the seed root up my peace, my joy, my self-control.
As I write this, my heart hurts. Because I see how easily the enemy uprooted what God had planted. Roots I thought were deep weren’t deep enough to hold on to the truth and ward off the lies.
Scripture tells us to meditate on what is excellent and praise worthy (Philippians 4:8). God promises to keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast and trust in Him (Isaiah 26:3). God’s Word is a light to our path (Psalm 119:105), and it has power to extinguish all the flaming arrows the enemy tries to throw our way (Ephesians 6:10-20).
The Word of God is overflowing with scripture to support the truth that doubt fear, worry, and shame are not from Jesus!
Days like today are strong reminders of why it is so important to know what Gods Word says. I wrote my song, “That’s Not Jesus” on a day much like today. Except on that day, I chose to hold steadfast to the truth. I began to meditate on God’s Word, then speak it, then sing it: “That’s Not Jesus! I am a child of the King! I have authority!” This song flowed from my spirit and became a song of victory.
Fight with scripture! You have an arsenal in God’s Word! He is ElRoi, the God who sees!
