Thank you Angie, for once again sharing from your own experiences on how God has lead you to fight back, when it felt like there was no life left in you. Thank you for showing us how worshiping God when you feel at your lowest point, will bring the breakthrough. How using the Sword of the Spirit – which is the Word of God – with His help, can have huge power over depression, anxiety, fear and other circumstances that the enemy attacks us with. How spending time in the presence of Jesus will make us radiate with His Glory, for all to see. May your testimony set everyone free who reads it, by God’s grace.
This year started with so many overwhelming things that happened, problems and challenges coming at me from all directions, things not going according to plan, that my head was spinning!
What I realized is that the devil’s easiest weapon used against us believers is distraction. If he can keep me busy with all the things life throws at me, I won’t have time to spend in the presence of the Living God. Then my battle is lost. Because it is when I spend time reading God’s Word, surrendering to Him, praying, repenting, thanking Him for all my blessings, and in Praise and Worship that God is able to show me His path for my Life and the solutions to my perceived problems.
When I surrender my day completely to Him, He is able to do great miracles in a moment. Surrender all those things that are overwhelming you to God completely today.
We live in a time where everyone is struggling with different diseases of the body and mind that are really taking people’s joy and shortening their lives. This past weekend the Lord has started speaking and confirming specific things to me so powerfully that I have to share them.
What if that disease (be it in your body or a mental illness that you have struggled with for so long) can be healed with Jesus’s help, who can give you the strength to take captive the thoughts in our own minds that are making us ill? The secret to our healing lies in our own minds, and what thoughts we choose to give energy to or not.
There are a video series by Pastor Miles McPherson of Rock Church, San DIego and a Podcast series by Dr Caroline Leaf, a cognitive neuroscientist, both given the same weekend, on different continents, speaking about the influence you have to change your thoughts, your mind and your physical brain (which controls the rest of your body) in the process. Intrigued yet?
