Now it came to pass on a certain day, that He went into a ship with His disciples: and He said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.
Luke 8:22 (KJV)
Sometimes, probably often, in our own lives we need to cross over to the other side of the lake. We might be on the bad side, the side where evil thoughts dwell. The side where unforgiveness lives in us. The side where hate and anger are in us. The side where we are not spending time with God and letting Him strengthen our lives.
It may be time for US to go over to the other side of the lake. It's time for us to look to God and take a hold of His strength. It's time for us to use the weapons God had given us and fight against torment the devil throws at us. It's time for us to move forward from where we are at, and go over unto newness.
Ask God to help you forgive. Quote scriptures at the devil when he tires to torment you. Rebuke him.
Read your Bible daily and other Christian books to grow spiritually and know the ways of God. Read His Word and draw peace and comfort from It. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 (KJV)
Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
I'ts time for us to move on pass the pain and regret. It's time for us to take up our weapons (The Word of God, Prayer) and fight the devil, and move pass the torment he wants us to live in and into the blessings, peace, and victory God wants us to live in! It's time to grow spiritually in God!
Friends: Together let's move from the runts we're at in life, let's move to the other side of the lake into God's victorious life He had for us!
And they launched forth.
