SHADOW BOXING SAINTS
You have probably heard of the scripture below but because of how it
is often taught and fear is instilled in your mind. That's because too much
teaching magnifies the devil. The truth is that it's much easier if you
understand what you are really fighting. Now unless I mislead you be
it understood there is a real fight and you are going to wrestle but hopefully
you won't be fighting fearfully after you read this. Jesus defeated the devil
and gave you authority over him and over his words and accusations. Your
tongue and the words of your mouth that agree with God's written word or
any word the Spirit of God gives you has the power to resist devils and give you
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.
The battle is in the mind and the battle is spiritual but you can take the
spooky out of it if you understand that words are spirit. You fight against
forces that resist God. What are those forces well they are devils! Now
don't let that shake you because they are words in thought form. You are
superior to them because the power they get -- they get from you.
They are not creators but you are! If you agree with with the negative backward
thoughts you give them power and if the thoughts are extremely fearful
and you don't resist them they will gang up on you producing negative
results in your life. You have a steady stream of negative thoughts everyday
on TV and in newspapers and especially TV medicine commercials. You
know the ones that suggest some symptom so just maybe you might have
Cancer or some other dreaded disease.
Since the fall of Adam & Eve the natural mind finds it easier to believe the
opposite of the Truth of God's Word. So the wrestling comes in by forcing
your mind and mouth to think and speak in agreement with God.
We actually wrestle with THOUGHTS
Depressed------ Thoughts Perverted ------Thoughts
Unworthy -------Thoughts Hatred ---------Thoughts
Poverty---------- Thoughts Revenge--------Thoughts
Worried ----------Thoughts Any Negative----Thoughts
Anxious---------- Thoughts Sickness--------- Thoughts
God's words do not agree with any of the above mentioned thoughts.
If you refuse to listen and meditate on the above negative thoughts and
instead meditate on God's word that is the opposite type of thought and
refuse to speak anything negative you deprive the negative thoughts
of power over you. Your thoughts and words that agree with God are
your weapons of warfare. Think God's thoughts and speak words that
agree with His written word or words he has spoken to your heart and
resist the negative thoughts and the victory is yours.
Now the negative thoughts are in great abundance in the atmosphere
because that is what man has listened to and spoken the most since
Adam and Eve's fall. They will come to you so you must make a deliberate
choice to THINK and AGREE and SPEAK words that agree with God.
