We all receive wisdom from God to do what is right. But at the same time Satan also has some plans to misguide people following God. A mere thought of jealousy might lead to ending up of relationships, whether professional or personal. We need to guard our thoughts with God’s word. Every time we think wrong or enter into a process of doing it, a soft voice from our subconscious mind warns us that we are turning on to an undesirable path, undesirable to our God, which finally ends up giving unpleasing repercussions to us as well.
Then how do we prevent ourselves from getting into the dungeon that Satan prepares for us? Thoughts of anger, jealousy, strife, disobedience, disrespect might bubble up for a moment but if we keep entertaining these thoughts they start ruling our actions. Never keep thinking and rethinking about such sinful thoughts. Never let such thoughts linger on your mind. Many a times we deliberately force our mind to produce such thoughts which would harm others, just to satisfy our ego. It always seems self satisfying to think of ways of giving disrespect to someone who has mistreated you, but then the Word says- stand firm and hold on to what is right (2Th 2:15). It takes in a lot of conscious effort to follow the right path and it’s also not an easy thing to do. But when we do what our Master has told us to, then He gives the strength to sustain. He delivers. When we find people trying to play games and mess up our lives or relationships then the first thing we need to do is to go to God and ask for an insight into the matter. He will then surely bless us with His wisdom and show us the right path to follow. We should be asking God to mend us on a daily basis because this is something we really need. It is only by the strength of His word that we can be saved.
PRAYER: Lord, we are weak in flesh. Help us to align our thoughts in accordance to you so that we may stand pleasing to you. Amen.
