Mind Battles


It Is Written, John 16:24, until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
Are you one of those Christians who never asks God for anything? Do you think something is too big for God, or He is too busy to help you? Does your mind seem incapable of deciding whether to ask God or not? Let's look at a few reasons for not asking.
You don't want to bother God with your wants or needs. You don't want to seem greedy. Maybe you feel that you don't know how to ask. Does this seem like you?
Now we come to the biggest reason people don't ask God for anything. The fact of the matter is, unbelief is the problem. We don't, or can't believe God would do whatever it is, for us.
Now let's look at the real answer. satan plays with our minds. Don't forget that he planted doubt in Eve's mind about God, and she and Adam lost paradise. An untold number of us think that Adam and Eve were stupid, and we would never have done that. Really?
Jesus died on the cross, and rose again for us. By His stripes we were healed. By His death and resurrection He conquered death and satan for us.
 Jesus gave us authority over satan in His name. James 4:7 says therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. If we do not trust or have faith in Jesus words, as written in the Bible, we are worse than Adam and Eve. We know about satan and his tricks, they didn't. So let us not judge too harshly, unless we judge ourselves. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
