For the past several weeks, I have enjoyed the words that God has been speaking to my heart. Even if they were hard, it was good to hear Him speaking to me. It seemed that every Sunday I would receive a morsel of truth and be able to chew on it during the week ahead.
I felt somewhat distant today. There were so many things on my mind. I tried to put them out of my mind, to bring myself to some spiritual point so that I could "feel" the annointing. I just couldn't get my brain to focus on "all things spiritual".
So, was God silent today? Did He chose not to speak? Was it me? Did I shut my ears and my heart to the words of the Lord? No, I know what God was speaking today. I think I just didn't want to hear it.
There has been such a battle in my mind lately. And for me that is the hardest struggle of all. I am a thinker. My brain never stops! I'm constantly thinking, even when things are going on, and I'm busy I'm still thinking, remembering, my brain just never stops. So this battle in my mind is wearing me out. There are times I wish I didn't have to analyze everything.
2 Cor 10:5
5We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Lord, help me to take my thoughts captive.
