When Israel entered the Promised Land there were five kings with armies determined to stop them. But God helped Joshua to defeat them and all five kings ran and hid in a cave. So Joshua told his soldiers to bring them out and put their foot on each of their necks. That day God's Word to His people was: '...Be strong and of good courage, for thus the Lord will do to all your enemies against whom you fight' (v25 NKJV).
What a promise! Are the forces of fear trying to take up residence in your mind today? Are they causing you to think the worst instead of believing God for the best? Are they telling you that you're unworthy to receive what He has promised, that you'll never fulfil the destiny God has in mind for you? With God, your victory is assured, but you have a part to play in it. You must go into that dark cave, bring each king out, place your foot on their neck and put them to death.
These five kings represent your five natural senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching, and God doesn't want you to live according to their dictates. Your senses are susceptible to every negative thing going on around you, but your faith can lift you above it and give you victory. But you can't just sit down and do nothing. Your passivity gives them the right to rule you. They have no power over you, except the power you give them. So put your foot down!
That is an interesting one for me to read today. The only thing i really have to add to that or say today is this;
To the person who has been leaving constant and nasty comments on my blog over the past few days - i will give you a hint...
When attempting to be anonymous, and hide who you are - try not to give away the fact that you have stalked me and obsessed over me for the past 16 months. When you let out in your comments just how much you think you know about me and my life - you also let out that you are not just some random person who came across my blog, disagrees with me, and feels the need to tell me so in the most insulting way that particular personality that has control of your mind at that point in time can muster.
As much as i have loved writing in my blog over the last 3 years - i am not silly enough to think that anyone other than you has read every word.
Keep that in mind next time you feel the need to post a nasty comment. Sometimes less is more so try to listen to the nice voices in your head for a change. Alternatively - you could get help for that condition of yours.
This week has been a challenge! I am finding that waiting to receive my Sociology grade is like being a ten year old on Christmas Eve. I am getting a bit sick of waiting and am dying to know my grade.
I have started two more papers this week and am not finding them nearly as interesting as i found Sociology so i guess that is going to be a bit of a challenge. I have also found myself getting rather depressed over someone that i have met at Uni kind of latching on to me and always wanting my help. She did not get her Sociology assignment in on time. She asked for an extension and was granted one. She wanted to come to my house today so that i could
T is telling me to just tell her no. In fact he is offering to ring her for me to advise her that is cheating.
I just don't need the conflict. I am going to have to find a way to distance myself from this woman without offending her.
Sometimes - I. Hate. My. Life.
I love T though...he has been trying to cheer me up all morning. Those bacon and eggs were superb and so was the comfy sleep in with the electric blanket.
I am in trouble with the kids as well. Thanks to T's promiscuous cats and my inability to say no - we ended up with another kitten. My place has new carpet though and one too many cat poops later the kitten went back to where it came from while the kids were at their Dad's. I am now in trouble for giving away their pet.
I love how kids always want kittens but they never want cats - and not once did any of them clean up a pile of poop.
It has been a week!
