To read my Bible as I have been "nuged" by Him to do so.

by Karin
(Schaumburg, IL)

1. "Listen" to those nudges and not let them be passed on by or state that "I will do it just as soon as I get a chance" becasue WE ALL know the enemy will not give us that "chance" for he will get obstacles in our way.

2. Stop, think, and resolve to find a time to read more. I do not know when that is the time for me but I am leaning more towards 15 minutes before getting up or 15 minutes before bed. I have to think so I can committ to it.

3. Once started, meditate on what I read. I would eventually like it to take my Bible time and "study" the good Word I just read and follow up with other scriptures.

4. In order to get to number 3, I need to continue to not let my work or other duties or tasks take over! This is the challenge now as I have been experiencing the enemy try to take over what time I have now and I am NOT having any of it!!

No Demon has the power to separate us from the love of God according to Romans:8:38. So then our love for God is a power force which Demons can not destroy
by: Minister Marlene

Romans 8:38-39..For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor DEMONS, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We our worst enemy?
by: Karin

If we are our worst enemy, then we are null in the Holy Spirit! As Christians, there is never "giving too much credit to the devil". He is THE enemy and as a Christian, he will ALWAYS find ways, even little cranies, to get in because we ARE Christians. That is why Jesus has left us something "tangible" for we flesh beings- that being the Good News when the devil attacks!

my "state" exactly!
by: Ebi Philips

you are so right about the enemy getting a lot of stuff our way just to make sure we dont have that special time with the Lord and His word. its like been so busy about superficial things and neglecting the one most important thing.Jesus couldnt have said it any better when he said Mary chose the best part(Luke 10:38-42)

Sometimes we are our own enemy
by: Minister Marlene

Sometimes we are our own enemy and we give too much credit to the devil. We are the ones in control of whether or not we read and meditate on the word of God. I understand how you feel and remember having related issues when I first came to Christ. The devil can in no way prevent us from getting out of bed and making Bible study a priority. Bible study and scripture meditation is a commandment. It's something we make sure we do because God commands us to do it. Once we make up our minds and decide that we are the captain of our own ship, we then take control of our own lives.If we leave ourselves open to the excuse that the devil is stopping us from doing what God commands, then we will always fall back on that excuse and do nothing.The best thing to do is take the devil out of the equation, and understand and know that you and you alone make choices. Choose to follow God's command to meditate on and study scripture. You will have to just " do it ". You make sure you do and practice what every Christian is commanded to do. Once I myself realized that God commands his people to study and that to practice scripture meditation is a law of God, I got right to the task. Decide that you don't intend to be disobedient to God, then before you start your day, get your Bible, open it and begin your studies. Remembering always that you are in control of your life.The only reason we would not study is because we made a decision not to study. The only reason I began to study and meditate on the word, is because I made a decision to do so. So then, make your decision today. And as Nike says " just do it".
