None of These Things Move Me….
Acts 20:24-But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
Yesterday I was stuck in traffic for well over an hour. I mean stop and go and most times stand still traffic. To compound my problem I neglected to put gas in my car earlier during my commute, so it was essentially on E.
You better know the enemy began to whisper all kinds of foolishness in my head. You should pull your car over and walk, so you don’t run out of gas. And when he wasn’t trying to convince me to get out of my car on a busy eight-lane highway. He was trying to assault my mind about how stupid I was for not getting gas and how sorry I’d be when I finally ran out.
While sitting there, I began to pray and rebuke the devil. The Bible tells us we should cast down every imagination and the high thing that tries to captivate our minds. In 2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
I do not have to allow the enemy to beat me up and play games with my mind. And even when he tries it none of those things move me. None of those things to move me from my relationship with God. None of these things move me.
Romans 8: 38-39 gives us a list of things that will try to come and move us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I submit to you today, we don’t have to be moved by any of the tricks and traps of the devil. We can cast down all of those things that try to separate us from God. When the enemy comes with his foolishness, tell him, none of those things move me.
