Our thought life is our biggest temptation isn’t it? It’s so easy to allow negative thoughts, unbelieving thoughts, doubtful thoughts, depressing thoughts, self-pitying thoughts into our minds. And worry! The worst! We are consumed with worldly matters of this life. We spend more time thinking about material things and the things of this earth rather than things which are above (Colossians 3:1-3).
God asks us the question in Jeremiah 4:14: “How long shall thy vain thoughts LODGE WITHIN THEE?” It’s true that these kind of thoughts constantly come to our minds. But we don’t have to dwell on them. My girls call them their “bucket thoughts” which they constantly throw out!
More importantly, please watch that they don’t LODGE in your brain. These thoughts may come, but throw them out as soon as they come. Speak the Scriptures OUT LOUD just as Jesus did when the tempter came to him (Matthew 4:1-11). You have power to overcome through the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony (which is also the Word of God). Read Revelation 12:11.
“Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).
Enjoy an overcoming day,
