You have heard if a house is divided against itself it can not stand. Our lives sometimes become bifurcated and we do and say things contrary to all that is within us. Our intent each and every day is to live out our destiny and calling but we seemed to get distracted by “things” we let distract us. I know the issues are sometimes overbearing and demand our attention and sometimes our affection. When they however divide us against not only our spiritual fortitude but better judgment we are divided not only against ourselves but God. These things often tie us up (our time, finances, emotional energy) and rob us of so that we begin to look and act as though we have no calling nor destiny.
You may even be accused of being evil, no less, than by evil folk. Strange? No, often we let all this happen.By guarding our houses, staying vigil, watching and praying we can stay the course and take charge of our minds to defeat the powers that so easily beset us. Look up right now, just your eyes not your head. Close your eyes slowly, breathe deep; listen for the quiet, forget about whatever is around you, watch in your mind the sunrise in the distance, until its glory fills your soul. Let God arise and your enemies be scattered. Now smile so folks think there is something wrong with you.
