Reject the lie..

There are times that before you SEE things get better you have going to THINK and BELIEVE for better. Of course I realize right now things could be a million times better in your life BUT I also recognize that things could be a million times worse than they are. Never lose sight of that fact as well.

One of things I work at DAILY and sometimes HOURLY is deciding to have peace, joy and happiness in spite of contradictory circumstances. One of the strongholds I struggled with for a long time was living with depression and misery and so those strongholds often try and pull me mind, body and spirit below the level of life God has for me.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NLT) We are human, but we don't wage war as humans do. We use God's mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasonings and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.

There may always be that lie that tells us you don't have enough money to be happy today OR things are not going well enough for you to sit there relaxed and peaceful. The lie maybe reasoning with the fact that TOO much is against you for you to be encouraged that you have the victory.
That is why you must DECIDE that the Word of God is your FINAL authority on the quality of life you live TODAY.

Ephesians 3:19-20 (NLT) May you experience the love of Chris, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
Be Blessed, Manie
