For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10: 4-5.
Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I rejoice over you. But I want you to be wise about what is good and innocent about what is evil. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Romans 16:19-20.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Do not give up so easily. This is never wise. Be an overcomer. How can you be an overcomer if you never have anything to overcome? If at the first negative comment you go put your light under a bushel basket and decide you will never again do anything but retreat, you are not doing what I told you to do. I told you to let your light shine before men so that they may see goodness in your acts and give praise to your heavenly Father. I told you to be My witness.
And what is even more, I told you to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give constant thanks, for this is My Will for you in Christ Jesus. If you are easily offended by other’s comments you will never do what I have told you is My Will for you.
People’s words sometimes are aimed to shame you, but Mine never are. So the answer is to always lift up your face to Me and you will never be ashamed. I always have something positive, encouraging, comforting, and uplifting to tell you even if it is an exhortation to raise you to a higher level of conduct. I am your ultimate judge but I am also your helper and comforter. I am merciful, kind, compassionate and I am love. I am also just and that is why I give you Jesus, so My justice can be satisfied on Him and you can be justified through Him. The wisest thing you can do is to receive and take Him as Lord and then you have what you desire to achieve as a free gift—your salvation. So great a salvation for it is not just for eternity but for now.
There is nothing that I cannot fix in your life and there is nothing I cannot give you the grace to overcome, even yourself.
I am here for you. And I am always “here” where you are, not off somewhere far away where you have to make efforts to get My attention. When you seek Me with your heart, you will find Me right there with you. David sang, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in sheol, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.” Psalm 139:7-10.
I formed you in your mother’s womb, I planned you from eternity, I love you and cherish you, you are forever in My heart, I have called you by name, and I gave My Son to die for your sins so you could be one with Me forever. There is nothing and no one that can take you from My love. So do not get so upset at and about other people. If you have done well, hold up your head, if you have done wrong, fix it by consulting Me for help. In either case I will be your righteousness and your vindication. There is no pit so deep that I cannot pull you out and fly you with eagle’s wings.
Now let Me tell you something to help you with comments or responses people make to you or about you that you perceive as negative, insulting, derogatory, or nasty, do what you do on Facebook or other social media, just delete that comment from that newsfeed or item you posted. You can do that and then it is like the comment was never made, no one sees it and you do not see it anymore either. That may sound simplistic when your mind keeps hanging onto it but learn, like My servant Paul, to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, who is My Word. So take every thought captive to the obedience of My Word and you will be much happier and have great peace, peace beyond all understanding. Do not let your thoughts torment you. Remember the devil is stalking you like a roaring lion trying to swallow you up and he will torment you. Roar back at him louder than he is roaring at you with My Word in joyful singing, shouting, and the blast of the trumpet! Remember that I told Moses to make two silver (silver is the metal of redemption) trumpets and when an adversary came against them to blow the two trumpets to call Me down to battle for them. Raise your voice like a trumpet, like I told the Israelites to do before the walls of Jericho, and watch the walls that hem you in from your toxic thoughts crumble down to dust blown away by the wind of the Spirit. Fire the thoughts that are tormenting you, they are worthless, idle employees and you have an inner kingdom business to run. Only employ love, peace and joy, along with wisdom as the overseer, of your inner man of the heart. You have a business to run and a building project to raise, called the edifice of your life. The wise woman builds the house, but the foolish woman tears it down with her own hands.
Do not tear yourself apart, build yourself up by praying in the Spirit when everything seems to be coming against you that you had confidence in at one point. There is nothing eternal but things of the spirit. The flesh is useless in itself. It is the Spirit that gives life. My Words are Spirit and life. And they will put that life in you too. Watch over your thoughts and words as a good steward of the life I have entrusted you with, that is, your own life. Take care of your own house first and then take care of others. But many times taking care of and loving others, even negative ones, will fix your own house too.
Plant seeds of goodness, righteousness, love and peace and watch your life become a garden of Eden filled with the first BLESSING of mankind. It is never too early or too late to change and the only thing that will change you from the inside out is My Word. There is no other way to true success, a success that is eternal and not merely temporal.
Watch yourself, do not allow a negative comment to make you lose what you have accomplished, that you may receive your full reward. 2 John 1:8. It is through faith and patience that you obtain the promises. Fight the good fight of faith and do not give in and give up, even if the failure is your fault, I can fix that if you will just walk it out with Me in the light. Never let Satan trample on you, you must trample on him.
Make Me your refuge and your dwelling place and “you shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.” Psalm 91:9-13.
Know My Word, meditate on it day and night, follow no other way, it will give you wisdom so you can be wise about what is good and innocent about what is evil. And I, the God of shalom, will soon crush Satan under your feet. Romans 16:19-20; Joshua 1:7-8.
I love you. Be like the angels in the endtime harvest, pull your thoughts into a dragnet, take them captive, and then throw out what is worthless and put what is worthwhile in containers, the compartments of your brain, and write them on the tablets of your heart. Delete the bad, leave the good.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered of every kind; and when it was filled, they pulled it up on the beach; and they sat down and gathered the good into containers, but the bad they threw away. So it will be at the end of the age: the angels will come forth and remove the wicked from among the righteous, and they will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 13:47-50.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, think about these things. As for the things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9.
