Be encouraged by the Word of God and overcome worldliness. In Christ we are a new creation (2 Cor 5:17), let go of all fears, bad habits, anything that is keeping us bound and/or blocking our blessings. We are taught to do and say only that which will edify another (Eph 4:29), and do not sit at the “gossip table”. We should be mindful of the company that we keep, negative emotions, negative doers and negative thinking are contagious (Ps 1:1). In Christ Jesus we find peace and can be positive in every circumstance. Nothing ever happens that is beyond God’s control and He is never caught off-guard (Ps 121).
23 Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.
23 Whoever guards his mouth and tongue
Keeps his soul from troubles.
Ephesians 4:29 (NLT)
29 Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.
Ephesians 6:11 (NLT)
11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Be blessed, keep God first and keep looking up,
