David Abioye's Daily Devotional June 21, 2017 – Uproot That Weed!


Topic: Uproot That Weed! [Wednesday June 21, 2017]

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 says, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh.” So, Christianity is a call to warfare not funfair. And a war is fought with weapons, not toys. That is why the next verse says, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;” The word ‘canal’ in this context means they are not physically identified or seen. But even then, they are effectual through God to the pulling down of strongholds. So, there is no hold of the devil any where that you can’t pull down. You can pull down the devil from any height! How? By “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;”

Now, imaginations talks of reasonings or mental pictures. So, every physical warfare you see around you is traceable to a mental warfare. Until satan overcomes you in your mind, he cannot prevail over you in the physical.

The mind of man is an open junction. I can’t promise you that satan will stop suggesting evil thoughts to you, but you have the power either to reject those thoughts or embraces them. When he flashes a picture before your mind and tells you, “You will have accident”, you have the power to reject it and tell him, “No! Satan, you are too small to try that!”

No matter what is happening around you, to keep thinking right. When you touch your child and it seems the temperature is high, instead of thinking, “Maybe this child has a disease. Ahh! It might even lead to death!” Simply tell yourself, “The seed of the righteous shall be mighty upon earth. This is a mighty man in the making, not a weakling.”
