QUESTION?
Why do certain people seem to struggle more, or seem to have a harder time overcoming stress, worry, addictions, toxic or improper relationships…

Biblically speaking, we are equipped to fight the battle that Jesus won in His earthly ministry. We are designed to be GIVERS, to be examples of the life of Jesus.

We were not equipped to fight or overcome those things of the world. The world generates TAKERS, those who live life primarily for themselves and their pleasures.

It is important to know that the way you think proceeds the way you feel which will control the way you behave. Those who allow themselves to be weakened by looking to the world for answers are opening themselves to the familiar spirit. A spirit that is at home in the ways of the world.

This spirit has subtle ways of sneaking in and changing the way you think. It creeps into your conversations, those you associate, your daily choices. You see familiarity causes you to look to your past and recreate it. It looks to cause you to idolize things that were and remain harmful that will lead you away form the purpose of your life.

You need to change your thoughts; to change your behaviors, to be able to change or transform your life where the door is slammed shut on the familiar spirit.

Ephesians 2:2 tells us that Satan enters children of disobedience. If you live a lifestyle or surround yourself with that which is unhealthy the door is opened for Satan to enter. And of course, when he does you become deceived evil appears good and good appears evil Isaiah 5:20.

Seeking Peace & Joy

Read the post from Nov 8th. We have been asked to clarify what makes for a sandy foundation. Here is our answer. Anything that you “can’t live without” that has control over your life becomes an idol. Anything that can cause mental torment and it comes in all configurations. Anything that opens you up to be vulnerable. These things strip you of the peace and joy we yearn for. The reason you can’t live without certain things or some habits is that a void remains inside and it can only be filled, by God.
Let’s look at this spiritually. Most know of the scripture of the house built on rock that stood firm in the storm and while the house built on sand fell.
Matthew 7: 24-29_ Link to bible …
• When Jesus talks about a house, Jesus is referring to your life. Your life is either going to be built on truth or your life is going to be built on deception.
• The truth of the word of God is like a rock. The word of God can withstand storms and all the opposition that the demonic realm can impose against it.
• The same storm can hit the lives of two different people – one will stand, and one will fall.
The word of God is referred to as a rock. A rock is solid. The ways of the world are referred to as sand. Sand is not solid. It is made from tiny grains of rocks and minerals.
• A rock represents revelation knowledge – the wisdom of God. Sand is just little bits of knowledge that have no strength and consistency.
• People who just acknowledge God end up with a sandbox.
• People who intentionally press into the word of God will receive the blessing and the strength of revelation knowledge. Their foundation will be firm.
Remember we are living in a war between good and evil. The tactic of the enemy is to keep you teetering at the edge of the sinkhole. Through deception, the enemy promotes those things of the world that create dopamine releases in attempts to drive us away from the Word of God. And when our house sits on sand it is nothing for the demonic realm to promote anxiety and stress and worry.
Mental torment comes in all configurations. So many people are addicted to, idolize, so many things because (absolute) peace and joy are absent in their life. The list is endless, it is just not the drugs, alcohol, gambling, porn, nicotine, immorality, that people idolize. Why even FB, TV shows, eating, or even being a workaholic ….. As stated above anything that you “can’t live without” that has control over your life. These are some of the things chip away at the solid foundation that has been provided for us when we build our house on the rock.

Let's get started! Read, comment and ask questions.

ASK YOURSELF...... HAVE YOU FALLEN INTO A SINKHOLE?
Mere existence is like a house built upon a sinkhole. The house sinks slowly enough where people are aware that something is wrong but don't fully grasp what is happening.
In your life there may be a continual awareness that something is wrong, something is missing and your attempts to fix the problem will be a lifelong struggle. People merely exist. When an unexpected event hits you, suddenly you are in a mudslide. Question is – what kind of foundation is the house built on?
Storms in your life cause sinkholes and mudslides to strip away your confidence and joy. Some people weather the storm others just accept that their life is meant to be teetering on the edge of a sinkhole. Others get into self-pity because they think that they are always the one who experiences the worst of everything. No, the storms hit all people, but only certain people have equipped themselves for success by choosing the foundation that their life is anchored on.
