Don’t Serve the Problem

by Kenneth & Gloria Copeland

You can’t win a victory as long as the problem is the biggest thing in your life!

…We serve our thoughts! That’s why the 55th Chapter of Isaiah says for us to forsake our thoughts, and by the Word take God’s thoughts. That’s why 2 Corinthians 10:5 says to cast out thoughts that challenge the Word and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Do you want deliverance from your problems today? Then quit serving them! Quit allowing them to consume your thought life. and don’t wait until circumstances change to do it. Instead, realize that circumstances won’t ever change until you switch from wrong to right thinking.

I know that’s not easy to do, especially in the midst of heavy darkness and trial. But you can do it if you’ll do these three things:

  1. Remember that you are not alone. You have the Word (God’s thoughts). You have the Holy Spirit to strengthen you, and you have the Mind of Christ.
  2. Get around people who are full of faith. Instead of rehearsing your problem, let them do the talking. Make yourself listen. Join in with faith and resist darkness.
  3. Praise God! Do whatever it takes to make yourself praise. When you begin to praise, God’s presence will turn back those worried thoughts and make them fall!

Your problems are NOT the biggest thing in your life. Jesus is. Serve Him with your thoughts and He will set you free.

Scripture Reading: Philippians 4:8, Isaiah 55:7

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”

“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him.”
