“Be transformed by the renewing of your mind”
” It is a dangourous thing to go out into the world empty, everything the enemy presents will seem sweet, choose to fill yourself with the things of God so that you won’t be tempted by the world’s offerings”
For if we want God to change our lives, he first must change our minds. We of this society all walk a path through this journey of life, throughout this journey we all start and end in the same way, but the problem then lies with the middle, this is the time that we are shaped, taught and our minds are ripe for whatever may enter into it? The mind will either get filled with much good which is the love of God for us, or it can also be filled with evil, that will shape us into someone even ourselves will not reckognize, what’s worse it will turn us into someone for who we truly are not. There are many ways that will come and pollute our minds, the TV we watch, people around us, the books we read, or just about anything we may encounter. The good is natural and healthy, but the evil we may learn, which will consume and control everything about us.
Throughout this journey of life we all will be tempted by many things whether good or evil, Jesus was also tempted by Satan as he walked among us, the easy part is to give into temptation, but like Jesus showed us, when we steer clear of anything that will tempt us, the good will always shine the brightest within us. There is good and there is evil, but when we become consumed with evil and when we let the evil control every fiber of our being, we shall never see any good and the clouds within our minds will keep us within the darkness of evil, which we then forget that good will always defeat evil, but when the evil is all around us, we will never see it and lose faith with no hope moving forward.
With all the unrest that has taken to the streets around us, truly shows that evil is front and center before us, those that have embarked on this evil kick, have learned this from somewhere, they have given into the temptation of Satan, but when you look deeper into the evil, you can see that the tempted ones have been brainwashed by something or someone bigger, they are being funded by a source that has also given into the temptation of evil and with all this giving in, has made for a very uncomfortable journey for the rest of us. This is the middle of the journey that shapes us into who we become, but in no way should this be a way to measure us or define us throughout this journey we walk.
What we all forget as we walk this journey is, through evil no good ever comes from it, only more evil comes from evil. The evil may control who we are, but the good is within us and is totally of who we truly are, the good keeps us grounded as we feel the love of Jesus within our hearts, then share that love within us. through the evil we feel nothing as our hearts are stone cold, giving us no remorse or empathy for anyone around us, and as we become brainwashed from somewhere or from someone, we not only become cosumed by evil, we also become engulfed within the power of denial, simply because we do not want to admit to our faults. Evil like denial will control who we are, so with the lack of faith, then we will have no hope moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
” Good versus evil……….one is beautiful while the other full of ugliness”
” Give into temptation and the darkness will keep you from seeing the light”
