Did you know that your mind is a
battleground where Satan and his demons will try to defeat you? Just
like in the game of chess where you have different attack options,
Satan also has different ways to attack a human being, and your
emotions are one avenue he will use. He will tempt you to live in
the past, try to make you discontent and stir up frustration, anger,
jealously, insecurity and depression in your life. However, you can
protect yourself by refusing to get emotional and using your
intelligence, along with wisdom from the Holy Spirit.
Some things in life can be changed and there are others that cannot.
If you're facing the latter situation, learn to work around it by
casting all your burdens upon Jesus and letting the pieces lie where
they fall. You may not have a say in the selecting the difficulties
you face, but you can rest securely knowing that God is shaping you
for eternity. Therefore, rest assured that there is no crisis in
heaven, God is on the throne and He has a solution to every problem
you are facing. If Jesus is your shepherd, let Him handle what you
cannot, so that you can move from bondage to a life of victory.
