If we want to stay healthy, its important that we take responsibility for the thoughts we entertain.
If evil thoughts come knocking at our mental door like, “Your dad had diabetes so you’re going to get it,” or “I have the flu and must suffer for 7 days,” or, “I’m a bad financial planner and keep going into debt,” they need to be rejected and dissolved with spiritual truth to prevent them from having a bad effect.
We are never helpless in the face of evil suggestion. They can be put off and turned away. “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” James 4:7.
We have power through Christ to deny and destroy any evil suggestion. Evil does not have power to overturn good. Good wipes out evil. But to make this demonstration, we need to side with the good, to align with Christ, and refuse to agree with evil.
Some people shun taking responsibility. They are afraid of it, or shy away from the mental work it requires. But taking responsibility is a good thing. It enables us to be honest about what we’re thinking, and to sort out the good from the bad. It takes weakness out of our life. It gives us strength. It prospers our prayers and efforts to move forward.
When we take full responsibility for our thinking, we won’t make excuses for failure like, “I can’t help it,” or “I’m not smart enough,” or “That’s the way it is.” We will resist evil suggestions, put them out and stay free of their bad influence.
Through Christ, we can overcome any evil. Christ is the power and presence of God at work within our being sustaining all good.
Exercise your spiritual dominion and authority today over all evil suggestions. Put them out! Have nothing to do with them. Remember your perfection in God and your divine right to live healthy, peaceful and free of all evil. Take responsibility for what you think, and side only with the good!
Think free, live free and be free.
