Battlefield of the Mind: Week Four

Deuteronomy 7:22

The LORD your God will drive out those nations before you, little by little.

I really love this chapter in Joyce Meyer's book, because it reminds me that God doesn't always do things quickly or "all at once."

In a world where microwaves are found in nearly every home and high-speed Internet seems to be the only way people want to "surf the web," it is easy to get caught up in wanting everything NOW.

God's ways are so different than our ways, though.

His time rarely ever matches our time.   To Him a day is a like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day.

The devil can whisper things into our minds and cause us to believe that we are never going to be all that God wants us to be.......

but in order to win the battle, we have to remember that

"little by little"

God will drive out those things that are against us.....

Maybe you are in a battle with your health or the health of one you love.

Maybe you are trying desperately to live a full life for God in spite of your deep and painful grief.

Maybe you are struggling with loneliness, depression, fear, or insecurity.

Whatever you are facing today, please remember that He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it!!

Even if He is completing it little by little.

What a beautiful song and video clip. I haven't ready my chapter 4 must go and get that done. I have become the blessed owner of a new Kindle and haven't been able to get my nose out of Frencine River's books all week.

Off I go to read now.

Well, I am back and have Chapter 4. I found it really encouraging to have the idea that God only changes us little by little reinforced. I often feel as if I want it "NOW". Also that there in NO condemnation when we are in Christ. If we are feeling that way it is coming from the enemy camp. Reading this chapter has shown me how much I have grown over the years. I praise God for the good sound teaching that I have received. So that now I can be in a pretty good place, God and I. Life without the Holy Spirit would be empty.

I really like the last statement in this chapter. "Be patient with yourself!"
