We have to be more and more alert as the time of Our Lord draws near. So many Christians are being attack through witchcraft. So it is very important to keep our thoughts on how loving a God we serve and not always dwelling on our problems.
Once I was so concern about my problems, God brought my attention that God wanted to be praised. At the time I was too busy rebuking the enemy. I remember many years ago I had a dream. On the left side was Satan’s army, tanks, missiles etc. and on the right was God’s army. We were all joyful and praising God. That is our strength being joyful in the Lord and praising Him. When we do that all the time our intercessory prayers are even more powerful. We are pleasing God and getting to know Him. You can’t be joyful if you are not confident in God’s love and protection for you. A couple ways to become joyful is to look at God in all his mercy and love for you. And remembering all the good things and the protection He has given to you in the past.
Philippians 4:8. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honourable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
There is a lot of training in this and I am still very much a beginner myself. But I am getting better at it and the relief now that I have in realising even to a greater extent of God’s forgiveness and how He does come to our rescue all the time, if we humble ourselves.
