Strategic Thoughts for Today shared by ++Joshua Paul

Many Of Us Are Plagued By A Malaise Deep Within Our Soul


Beneath the surface of our lives there lurks a subliminal sense of disquiet… a despondency; perhaps a lingering struggle with depression… even to the point of despair.

Strategic Spiritual Warfare

Let me suggest four reasons as to why:

1. Primal Wounds of the Heart

Most of us enter adult life deeply wounded. So unless and until we assume responsibility for the past, and allow Jesus the Healer to bind up our wounds, thereby giving us the grace to forgive, forget, and move beyond the past, we will continue on as spiritual and emotional cripples.

Behold, how happy is the man whom God reproves, so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. For He inflicts pain, and gives relief; He wounds, and His hands also heal. (Job 5:17, 18)

2. Cynicism of the Mind

Secretly, many of us live in two worlds. Intellectually we believe the Word of God to be true. However, when Jesus calls us to steps of faith demanding vulnerability, we often respond with, “I cant, or “I wont. And by our refusal, we demonstrate our spiritual cynicism that God really cannot be trusted.

But my righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrink back, my soul hath no pleasure in him. (Hebrews 10:38)

3. Paralysis of the Will

Many of us choose to continue to be victimized by our past, our circumstances, and our fears. Our motto is “I cant help it, or “I cant do it. So the freedom, the joy, and the victory available to us in Christ remain a distant illusion that recedes with each passing day.

But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. (Romans 8:37)

4. Overcrowding of the Soul

We are exposed to too much noise, activity, information, and pressure. Too little time is taken for meditation, rest, contemplation and prayer. So the jostling encountered by today’s typical urban professional is usually unkind to the inner life of the soul.

And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever. (Isaiah 32:17)

The enemy’s objective, to “steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10) the abundant life of Christ within us, is being realized if we fail to address these critical areas of life. Ultimately, the choice is ours.

 Facts of the Matter: Daily Devotionals.

We will FIGHT and we will WIN in the name of JESUS Our King!
