When Nagging Want Leave

When the nagging continues, dig deep within yourself and keep taking it to God in prayer for the enemy will use your uncontrolled thoughts against you, but God will give you rest[1] and He will see you through[2]. As hard as it is, don’t follow negativity; instead, turn to God by reading the Bible and by serving others. Surround yourself with the Lord. Remain strong for the enemy will attack often delivering bombs of confusion while you’re trying to move forward by doing what is right. The enemy defense is to jostle, getting you off your game, and to lead with anger fueled by fear; however, your counter attack is to remember God hasn’t given you a spirit of fear[3] but of sound mind allowing you to follow His way; therefore, it is important not to let the battle field of your mind become a quagmire of confusion delivered by the enemy. Be strong in God.
Read the Bible often as part of your life and then, read it as many times daily as needed to stay close to God. Pray and continue to pray for Christ has told us to be persistence in our prayer and to keep knocking for all that ask, receive and all that seek, find and all who knock, the door is open[4]. So it is with prayer that we are led through the battle field of the mind.
Don’t allow the enemy’s weapon of confusion to lead your thoughts. Go in prayer and read the Bible. Learn from the Bible the mistakes of many. Read their stories and learn what not to do in similar life situations for God tells us not to copy the customs of this world but be different and set apart[5]. Follow Him and He will reveal your path. No one gets to peer ahead into tomorrow‘s vista before time is prepared to reveal itself. Don’t run ahead in your tomorrow thoughts for again this will be how the enemy will enter through your mind. Live this day and only this day for it has enough concerns all of its own.
Turn to God and He will direct your steps[6].

[1] I will give you rest. (Matthew 11: 28-30)
[2] I will supply all your need. (Phil. 4:19)
[3] I have not given you a spirit of fear. (2 Tim. 1:7)
[4] And so it is with prayer – keep on asking and you will keep on getting; keep on looking and you will keep on finding; knock and the door will be opened. (Luke 11 9-10)
[5]Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how His ways will really satisfy you.(Romans 12: 2)
[6] I will direct your steps. (Proverbs 20:24)
