Tug of War

“Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭TPT‬‬

The rope of my mind was on the edge of fraying last night.

I went back and forth between Truth and reason.

From what I thought I felt, to what I know, He said.

I often reason that there are enough of these blogs-

So why write anymore?

I saw yesterday where free bible college classes are being offered.

Why then, do I just need to add more to the countless avenues to get Truth out there?

But, as I read this scripture, I’m reminded of the why, and The Who that asked me-

and allows me to ask.

“Don’t be pulled in different directions.” He SAID.

I was (pulled) and I’m sharing this Truth because I know I’m not the only one.

I had scattered showers of thoughts that were not in line with what Jesus said.

They were worried thoughts.

And they are

not permissible

for any reason.

You and I can’t pet these thoughts.

Entertaining them, even for a short time, (even if others are) can be detrimental to our Faith.

We have to give them no place.

“Be saturated.” He SAID.

Let the Word that is sown in your heart come breaking and gushing through.

Sadly, for many of us, we are waiting on the rain of God’s Word and presence.

We’re feeling parched, because we aren’t aware that we are already saturated.

Did you know that it wasn’t God’s original intent to make it rain?

The earth was actually watered and nourished from the bottom up before sin.

I believe, that is the perfect will of God today.

That we wouldn’t have to look around us for the rain, or do a spiritual rain dance,

but that we tap inside of us to the Heavenly reservoir!

But we do, and here we are, so, let’s Look at Him.

His Goodness.

He always meets the need first.

And that’s the answer to these tugging thoughts.

First of all, He asked me to share my testimony.

Because as brothers and sisters, we overcome that way.

I just have to shift my thinking.

It’s not just a bunch of Truth out there.

It’s a monsoon of Truth.

Jesus is soaking us with confirmation. He’s sending the Answers, that He’s already shared through the Word-

Through each other, so that there is no denying His heart to you and I.

We are so covered!

We are SATURATED.

It may look like we’re surrounded, but we’re Surrounded By TRUTH.

Our God cannot fail.

Pull that rope on the enemy’s lies.

You and I have the Stronger One On the inside.

See.

Aren’t you already more and more at peace?

He SAID that would happen.

As we praise Him, and overflow-

Allowing the Truth and the Testimonies of His Goodness to start to take over-

The floodgates are open.

We’re saturated.

And the very Peace of God, now transcends reasoning.

Transcends- going beyond

I had to look that up.

His Peace Goes beyond the reasoning, and my dear brothers and sisters,

It settles the war.

The answer is now known.

You and I are truly Overwhelmed by Love Himself.

Secure.

Brave.

Hopeful.

Peaceful.

Precious in His Sight.

And positioned as a Son or Daughter of the King.

Surely, Goodness and Mercy are following us,

All the days of our lives-

And we will dwell in the Father’s house forever.
