Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, bids us to look on the brighter side of things. We are admonished not to weigh our spirits down by dwelling on the sins and sordidness in our world. Philippians 4:8 bids us: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” (NIV)
In terms of overcoming generational curses, or even just recovering from a painful past event, this is very important. Dwelling on all the stuff that was wrong and went wrong, will only pull you down. It’s like trying to walk on quicksand. What we need to to is to collect up all the things that were right and went right. We need to meditate on those things; to explore them fully in terms of emotional impact, strength, and progress for us. The key is to recount our victories rather than rehearse our next failure; because you will go wherever you let your mind lead you.
God Calling has been my favorite inspirational read for years now. The only book I love more is the Bible. I’m grateful to the folks that put it online for us all to enjoy at twolisteners.org If you haven’t already, check it out for yourself. It completely changed my relationship with the Lord, Jesus. And yes, there really is wonder upon wonder of revelation in a life with Christ Jesus.
Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
