*Let this God inspired writing...from his heart to yours, help you to remain distant from a circumstance...that you may experience a true and lasting peace...
even in the midst of the circumstance.
Satan hits us head on with a circumstance...and this circumstance becomes a huge obstacle in our path that seems almost impossible to get around or get over. As this circumstance stands before us...we have two options, as to how we can handle it. We can either give it to God completely and live with peace of mind, while continually pressing on...knowing that He has it and has control over the circumstance...or we can focus so deeply on this circumstance...keeping our eye on it's every move; that before we realize it, we find that the circumstance has now begun to control us, while keeping us from moving forward in life.
How do we become distant from a circumstance; that is attempting to have control over us? First and foremost, we need to keep distant from the thoughts and feelings that are attempting to be conveyed through the circumstance, by placing our thoughts more deeply and more often on God. When our thoughts turn often to the Lord; then there is no need for worry or any other negative thing to have control over us...because our thoughts alone have taken us away from the problem...and the control it once had over us. On the other hand...when our thoughts become buried deep within the problem; then this opens up the back door of our hearts and gives Satan an invite...to come in and take over, from where he left off.
We need to remember that when we choose to focus more on what God may be up to, rather than what the problem appears to be up to; then these thoughts draw us further away from the problem, while allowing us to focus more deeply on where God may be leading us instead.
If we are ever going to experience peace instead of anxiety, during these troubled times; then we need to stop making our problems our god...and allow our thoughts to be filled with the true and living God...the One who can defeat the circumstance...before the circumstance chooses to defeat us....Amen!!
