Tell yourself the truth. “I’m destined for greater.” Monitor every word you speak to, about, and inside your “self.” You have to make a spiritual decision not to tell yourself another negative word. I challenge you to jot down what you tell yourself today and assess whether or not you’re speaking “life” or “death.” We can’t figure out why we’re stuck. We have talked ourselves out of moving forward. “I’m not good enough. I’m not smart enough. I don’t have enough. I can’t make it. I don’t feel good. I don’t feel like it. I can’t get up. No one will accept me. People may reject my ideas. No one will buy it. People don’t have money to support me.” Stop it now! Start telling yourself the truth – God’s Word. If God said it, that settles it. You are destined for greater. He foreknew you, formed you before you were formed. He established a great purpose for you. But you just have to tell yourself the truth! Now let’s go!
It is a constant fight. Cast down every thought that comes from hell. Do not let your mind linger on thoughts from the devil. For a long time, I obviously believed that I didn’t have control over my mind. I would say, “I can’t help it. I can’t stop thinking about it. I’m going to lose my mind.” Have you ever thought that or said that? That’s a lie from hell. God says to “cast down imaginations” and that means that we have the power to throw out thoughts, arguments, philosophies and all lies that contradict the truth. God’s Word is the truth. That’s what I have to think about. It’s a moment by moment process. Don’t just accept crazy, perverse, corrupt, or disobedient thoughts. Question how the thought was able to get in there? What are you watching and hearing and doing? It impacts your thoughts. Guard your heart and your mind; they work together for the good or the devil. Dr.J.
Keep that dragon, the devil out of your head. He is a deceiver, a liar, a thief, and the father of lies. We will not continue to let Satan mess with our minds about what we’ve done in the past. You’re thinking that because what you did was horribly terribly wrong that you’re still tied to it; because it was utterly disgusting or ridiculous that you are those things. We are not what we’ve done!
Recall the most disgusting, hurtful, disturbing things you’ve done. You got it in your head? Now, give it to God right now for the last time. God has forgiven us. And even though we may have forgiven ourselves, every time Satan brings it to our heads, we feel guilty and unworthy.
This is a deliverance post.
With all the Holy Ghost power in me and upon me, I declare and decree healing, restoration, and complete freedom from condemnation in Jesus’s name. We are not our mess. We are not our mistakes. We are not even the things that have happened to us. We are not our past.
Walk in your purpose. Come out of darkness right now in Jesus’s name. You are light now, in this present moment. Dr.J.
We cannot be schizophrenic believers. Sometimes we may have to wait until after God heals us and delivers us from spiritual schizophrenia before we minister to God’s people. We will have the people of God confused and unbelievers terrified about coming to Christ by the way we act. One minute we’re preaching and inspiring and the next minute we’re cussing and fussing. One minute we’re publicly pronouncing our faith, then publicly denouncing it. One day we’re believing God, and the next we’re speaking death. God doesn’t condemn us but He will hold us accountable for our extreme worldly emotional and mental reactions to situations in one minute and our spiritual reactions in the next minute.
God sat me down for a minute until He got me together – not perfect but steadfast. Let God heal you so He can use you. Let God heal us first before we mislead God’s people and those who “would be” God’s people. Kingdom building is too serious to play with. Dr.J.
James 3:1 ESV Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.
2 Timothy 2:16 ESV But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness,
You will not lose it! I know we feel like we are on the verge of losing it at any moment now, but we will not lose it! Hang in there! Don’t lose faith. Don’t lose sight of the prize He has promised if we would only keep pressing! Walls are closing in on us at home, at work, in our finances, and in our relationships but squeeze through to the other side. Debt, trouble, and situations are getting deeper, but keep swimming! “Progress” hills, “relief” hills, and “healing” hills are getting steeper but keep climbing. We have to take this stuff to Him and leave it all there. It’s time to really trust that He can do what He said He will. Mind boggling situations that we can’t handle on our own, we must release them from our minds and let Him fix it. Believe me, you will not lose your minds! I haven’t! He gives us peace of mind. Receive it today. Dr.J.
One of our biggest battles takes place in our minds. That is the devil’s principle battlefield. Your defense in this battle is to cast those negative contrary thoughts down out of your mind as soon as Satan plants them there. We have power and authority over our minds. We don’t have to accept thoughts in our minds that contradict what the Word of God says. If we do, we’re placing our imaginations above who God is. God is our fortress and our stronghold, not the pattern of negative thoughts in our heads.
If a thought causes worry and anxiety about your health, marriage, finances, or children, cast it down because God says do not be anxious about anything. You’re either going to think on these things – things that are praiseworthy, true, honest and of good report or you’re going to think thoughts that you’ve allowed the devil to exalt in your mind that are higher than God.
Bring those thoughts into captivity right now in Jesus name. Tell the devil you don’t have time for his mess. Tell him to stay out of your head. We can’t trust God with thoughts that contradict who God is and what God can do. Dr.J.
2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV “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;”
