Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Are you submitted to God?
You are in a war and the battlefield is in your mind. Your defense comes from you totally giving yourself over to the power and the authority of God the Father. There is no such thing as partial submission.
Revelation 3:15-16 “I know your works. You are neither cold with apathy nor hot with passion. It would be better if you were one or the other, but you are neither. 16 So because you are lukewarm, neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. (The Voice)
Focus your thoughts on God’s love for you and the fact that Jesus died for you. By refusing to focus on what the enemy has set before you or the current issues of your life, you cause the enemy to flee. You remove the platform he is standing on. This happens only when you are not the center of your life. The focal point of your thinking has to be God. You will see how quickly peace comes and the enemy flees.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, help me to remain in the place I am in right now, in Your presence. Show me what I need to do to keep my mind on You. Even now, I recognize when I spend all of my time thinking and talking about my issues and my problems; I am being selfish and the time that I spent was unproductive. But when I submit all of who I am to You, talk to You, and focus on You, I am engulfed in Your presence. I feel peace resting on me like a blanket and I thank You for it. You are able to speak to me. Sometimes You give me the answers to my issues. Sometimes you show me that the issue is me. But You always guide me to a place of peace. To live in this place is my desire…
