Perseverance, Anyone?

As I read in the book of Luke today, I noticed Jesus telling people to ask and keep on asking. Knock and keep on knocking. Seek and keep on seeking, and ye shall find. I paraphrased it from Luke 11:9.

Matthew 6:33 tells us not to be anxious for anything, another paraphrase.

If you have anything overwhelming you, you are not alone. Hold on to Jesus. Read the Bible for encouragement and direction. Pray and rest in God’s promises. Whatever you are going through, others are, too. My mom used to say, “This too shall pass.”

I heard yesterday that a high percentage of what people worry about never comes to fruition. It might have been 77%. That’s a lot of worrying over nothing.

Well, I am determined to get to bed earlier than normal, so I bid you a great night.

May God bless you.

  1. One definition of Worry in it’s verb tense

    give way to anxiety or unease; allow one’s mind to dwell on difficulty or troubles.
    “he worried about his soldier sons in the war”
    synonyms: fret, be concerned, be anxious, agonize, overthink, brood,
    panic, lose sleep, get worked up, get stressed, get in a state, stew, torment oneself

    Believe it or not, there is a demonic spirit that temps the souls of mankind in the form of worry.
    Ever keeping the physical, emotional man in constant loops and cycles of stress and self
    torture over that which is not in one’s control. The mental effort it takes to maintain this
    takes great mind power and limits the time we have to think of good things, lovely things,
    things that are peaceful and think on our Father God creator and Savior.

    Philippians 4:8King James Version (KJV)

    8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just,
    whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be
    any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

    So many christians today have not been taught about all the different types of demon spirits that temp and seduce
    the human mind in order to keep it from reaching out for God or crying out for help to him. There are books
    and doctors and counselors that keep you grounded in the earth and not to heaven. When the answers
    are from a human and not God, you know you won’t be free or get well soon. But God, Father and Savior
    Yeshua-Jesus are the great counselor and great physican.

    Those spirits keep bombarding the psyche with all manner of ill thoughts to keep our minds from focusing on
    who we are, what we are and who we truly belong to. These are some of the unseen chains that bind us and
    keep us captive to the physical nature of this world. Think of them as interference. They try to keep your mind
    so busy with other things that your mind cannot find its way to the source of communion and information and
    wisdom and life so necessary to us. The object….to hold us captive. Very few churches teach it’s people that
    God gives us power over these interference spirits in and through Yeshua-Jesus. You and I can rebuke these
    spirits in and by the power of the Most High King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

    2 Corinthians 10:4-5King James Version (KJV)

    4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

    5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into
    captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

    The problem is people do not think that these are real entities and just persist in believing it’s some phantom thought.
    If anyone listens to radios anymore, you would have experienced static while trying to switch to some channels. You really
    really want to find a clear spot for that channel you love to listen to, so you focus on dialing it up until you get just right on it.
    That is how it is with our minds and that channel to a straight bee line to clear and open communication to our Father. Make
    that your visual picture for focusing your mind, body and soul to our creator God. Rebuking the interfering spirits that
    bombard you with background noise to keep you off balance and out of tune with the wisdom of the ages. These things are
    real. You and I cannot fight an enemy if they are thought not to exist. The natural man does not acknowledge them, but
    you and I deal with them all the time in the form of fear, doubts, worry, obessive and compulsive behaviors.

    Ephesians 4:22-24King James Version (KJV)

    22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

    23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

    24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

    God the Father did not create in us confusion or an unsound mind. The natural man is evidence of the fall into a flesh
    and material state, separated from true ability to see all that is true and real. It is fraught with deception and externalized
    by our carnal desires of natural man. We have a way through Yeshua-Jesus to push through this barrier now. Praise
    God. He did not leave us helpless nor hopeless nor powerless. A way was provided. Provided you take it freely and willingly and therein
    put your hopes, faith and trust in Him, for He is able to do it for us and through us.

    Cast out and rebuke those things which trouble you and re-tune your mind and heart to God’s channel. Blessed be the hearer of
    these things in the name and power of our Lord God Savior Yeshua-Jesus. Amen.

    Persevere, persist, continue and do not ever give up hope, for faithful is He who loves us and provided a way of escape.
