As the Lord spoke this to me I was reminded of Joshua 1:9.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord is with you wherever you go. “
God has commanded me to stay focused.
Thoughts that come to you are accounted as though they were spoken to you. In this verse it seems like Joshua was having thoughts come to him that were counter to what God said. God had to remind Joshua that he had commanded him to be strong and of good courage. This is telling me that every thought that comes to you that is counter to God’s word is something that is being spoken to you and you need to take heed to what is going on. You are not called to be ignorant here.
God’s word to you are his thoughts and any thought that is counter to that is to be resisted, to be put down or it is to be put to death! It can not have a place of supremacy in you. It can not be allowed to rule or to live in you, ever! This is what God is saying.
“Stay committed to the word or thought that I gave to you. It is precious and others seek to remove you from it. Why? Because my word is life and life more abundantly.”
Courage is maintaining what you have begun in and refusing to come out of it. Courage requires strength of mind to control and to overcome. Be courageous for God has commanded it and if he has commanded it this means that you can do it.
