With The Word Of God

Joyce Meyer (17)

Soldiers guard things. That means you have to pay attention to what’s going on in your mind.

It means you have to think about what you’re thinking about. You have to choose your thoughts carefully. Some thoughts that came in may be good and you can keep those and meditate on them, but others you have to kick out right away. (vs. 5) we refute arguments. The devil tries to argue with you — theories, reasonings, imaginations, and every proud and high thing that does what? Disagrees with the word of God. So make your mind up if you’re going to be a Christian, you’re either going to live by this or you’re going to be a pathetic Christian.

You may sneak in the back door of heaven but you will never have any victory here, and you will probably live such a pathetic, defeated life that nobody is going to get to heaven because of you, because people are not looking for something that’s worse than what they already have with just a Christian label on it. They want to see people who are living the life, who have the goods, that have the fruit, that have a smile, that have some peace, that have some joy, that have some hope. (applause)

And let me tell you something — if we think the only way we can have all that is to have no problems, then we are really deceived because God did not give us the awesome, wonderful power of the holy ghost in our life so we can live on easy street.  We have the power of God living on the inside of us. We are the home of God, Christ in me, the hope of glory.

Greater is he who is in me than he who is in the world. By my God I can run through a troop and leap over a wall. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. These are not just little things to quote in church when we’re with our Christian friends, but this is what we live by. This is what you quote in your midnight hour when you’re home alone and the devil’s attacking your mind. That’s when you bring your thoughts into captivity unto the obedience of Jesus Christ. If we ever get a real revelation of who we are and what we have…. I honestly believe when we put our feet on the floor in the morning, hell ought to shake. The demons ought to tremble: “oh, she’s up again.” or “he’s up again. They’re up again.” (applause)
