Task #35 for the Single Ladies
In England I watched a self-help programme about dietary habits; it said…
“You are what you eat!”
If your diet is healthy, then your body will reflect this…
And the same goes for your spiritual health.
Your spiritual life is a representation of your thoughts…
“You are what you think!”
Pure and sincere thoughts, turned to God, without being fanatic, reflect a healthy spiritual life.
Your thoughts are a type of diet and that’s why it’s very important to take care of what you ‘eat’.
See which thoughts you are having and then you’ll understand the reason why your spiritual life is the way it is.
“Be really careful with how you deal with your thoughts… it’s practically impossible to control them, but if we keep an eye on them and reprove all thoughts that intend to pull us down, or rather, thoughts that come from the devil, then we are on the road to a healthy spiritual life.”
I also watched a video on Bishop Renato Cardoso’s site, where he was teaching about how to overcome evil thoughts.
This is something that I always try to do when the devil tries to assault me with negative thoughts:
I praise God! The devil detests it when we praise the Lord Jesus.
Look at what the Word of God teaches us…
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.”
Ps. Friends, the devil is sly. He brings evil thoughts to your mind and then accuses you with them and this guilt takes you further away from God.
But even so, don’t take the blame! Humble yourself before God, ask for His forgiveness and then lift up your head and march onwards!
This way we are destroying the traps of the devil in our life!
