Sometime ago, our daughter and son were spinning round continuously; hand in hand, until I was forced to ask them to stop before one or both of them fell.
“He was spinning me around” she said as they made their way to sit down; trying to justify their escapade.
All I could do at that point was shake my head.
How could your younger brother who is way smaller than you be strong enough to spin you around?” was the thought that popped into my heart.
Immediately they dispersed, something was being ministered to my spirit and I will like to share that with you here.
Many people are of the habit of blaming the devil for every wrong thing they do.
The thing is that the devil suggests all the bad things but there is something he doesn’t have power.
The devil Cannot force you to take his suggestions to you.
He can be as persistent as possible but you are left with the power to choose whether to yield to his suggestions or not.
Yes, you ALWAYS have a choice.
God has given us an awesome gift as humans and that is Will-power.
We are strong like that.
Stop saying “Yes” to sin.
You have been endowed with all you need for life and godliness.
To strengthen the power of your will, you need to meditate on God’s Words consistently. And practice utilizing that power to say “No” when the need arises.
Let your heart be opened to the light of the truth.
The next time you have struggles with choosing right, remind yourself that the power lies on your inside.
You have what it takes to live right.
Stop with the unfounded excuses for wrongdoing.
