Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Today, I am going over some powerful information to overcome adversity and help to renew your mind. Even more, like the scripture above states, you may just completely avoid the difficulty in the first place. That being said, everyone has those days where, stuff, seems to come out of nowhere and if we are not ready, sometimes even when we are prepared we may become temporarily rattled.
But have no fear, the scriptures are chocked full of information to assist us with these issues. To gain knowledge and understanding to overcome these problems lets look at some absolutely essential information. It is important to grasp these concepts, to get them deep within you, so you can truly have a blessed life.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
This seems like a very simple saying but it is packed with spiritual power! It tells us that how you think, what thoughts are within the very core of your being, actually control the direction and course of your life. This is a powerful spiritual truth! Jesus said it this way..
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things; and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
So, whatever good or evil which is within you shall manifest when it comes out of your mouth. Even more than that, you should try to have only good thoughts within you and do not speak, that which you do not want. For, words are power in motion. Throughout the Bible every time the Lord performed an act or Jesus performed an act, he said it first. Jesus gives us instruction here; For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:23-24
Paul the apostle also received this, very knowledge of God, saying this:
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.
2 Corinthians 4:13
Paul and John absolutely knew that it was very important to get good thoughts within you. We are supposed to be filled with love! He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:8 So, when you speak make sure they are powerful, good words, to bless yourself and others. People will feel the good which comes from you and good fruit will follow.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, what soever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Then we know, with a pure heart we realize, that God is with us and we are armed, equipped, to overcome the obstacles of the day. For, we are told to live by faith not by sight; so what appears to be, is simply that, the appearance of what is which may be altered by, the word of our mouth, the very power of God put into motion. Glory to God! But, to do so we must be living right, righteously, it is called, loving one another and God with a fervent heart. Then when we ask, believing we will receive, our heart will not feel condemned and make our request void. Peter the apostle put it this way; For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers; but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
So, do good and fear not; know that God is with you. Be blessed, until next time, love and light to all!
