Keep Your Eyes On Him
By Kim Hawkins
Dwelling is a very slippery slope, a lie dwelt on will become a thought
~The thought(s) usually then come out of our mouth by speaking of and complaining about
~Our words have the power of life and death, we now give that what is spoken, power and life.
“We demolish arguments and every pretention that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5b
When we start dwelling on thoughts about our problems, we start to feel the need to talk and complain. Our words give life and power to the problem and that causes us to be in agreement with the enemy. By rejecting the plan of the evil one by deciding NOT to take the bait but instead pray and lay all our burdens at Jesus’ feet, that completely surrenders those lies to Him.
I can see now all the pain that could have been avoided if I had rejected thoughts about a few things in my life being “so difficult, hurtful, ect”. Those two things had a hold on me for years concerning problems that I gave life to by dwelling on them instead of rejecting and claiming what God’s word says.
CHALLENGE: Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning it’s shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
