The war within
Give her a piece of your mind let her know she can’t talk to you like that. You shouldn’t have said that… and you call yourself a child of God. Do you think anything will change? You are angry and full of hate. No matter how far you run you certainly will be back.
I need a break! Maybe I’m just not who God wants me to be. Maybe I’m just a hypocrite.
I know I could’ve done better. I have the potential to be great but I never follow through with anything. I’m never satisfied, nothing I do is good enough. I make so much progress, only for it to amount to nothing. What’s wrong with me? Why are these thoughts haunting me? It’s all too much. I can’t handle it.
I used to be there. Drowning in my thoughts, over critical of myself. A prisoner to my mind, a prisoner to circumstances, situations, and conversations. Screaming for help, I wanted to be freed from the war within but my lips were sealed.
I was born again, but I didn’t have a renewed mind. I had no idea about the person of the Holy Spirit or his ministry in my life. You see as a child of God it’s important to believe in Jesus and confess that he’s lord over your life. But it doesn’t stop there. You must renew your mind to understand your rights in Christ.
The day I received the Holy Spirit , my hunger for the word grew. The more I studied the word the more I became what it talked about. The voices I used to hear were replaced with the voice of God. Even when the thoughts of doubt and negativity tried to creep up, the voice of God was there to subdue them.
This life is spiritual. The devil will try to send thoughts to program you in the direction of self-condemnation, unbelief, and self-hate. But if you’re filled with the word of God you know the truth about who you are and you can stand your ground and refuse to accept those thoughts.
The war within could be tough because people outside may not know that you’re fighting a battle. You’re not alone and this isn’t the war you should be fighting. Jesus died that you may have life and live it to the fullest. And that you may have peace of mind.
When the voices of self-hate, condemnation, and unbelief begin to arise, refuse to keep quiet, replace them with the word of God.
