The voices, your head and the real battle!
“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” – 1 Peter 5:6-10
The devil doesn’t care what you do as long as he can make you feel bad about doing it and make others feel bad about you for doing it! It’s called condemnation and he is a master at it!
On the other hand God wants you to be anxiety free and Love every moment you live and Yes He Is The Master of FREEDOM and this Life! It’s called Faith!
That being said learning to listen to the voice and identify it is Not always easy especially with our society, many churches that are guilt inducing and our feed!
If you want to break out of the devils matrix and let God restore you here are some suggestions:
1) Humble yourself before God and accept that He alone can restore you!
2) Recognize and rest in what Jesus really did on that cross by taking away All your fear, condemnation and shame! “All things are lawful but Not all things are profitable!”
3) Listen to the voices inside you and recognize the one of fear, condemnation and shame as the devil! Recognize this voice as a Very unprofitable thing to keep listening to!
4) Control as best you can your input! Many things can and will feed the voice of the devil – many churches that preach sin and condemnation instead of Faith, Hope and Love – many movies and television programs feed his voice – sometimes friends and family can feed his voice!
The bottom-line is this – the devil wants you to feel condemnation, shame, guilt and fear and in so doing convince others that these feelings and thoughts are God’s way – WHEN they are not – Thanks to the cross of Christ and the Amazing and Enduring Love of God!
